I read a review in HiFi+ on the S6e a few months ago. For what it's worth to you, the reviewer found it very difficult to place. It needed to be way out into the room.

Are you sure you didn't read the one on the S8e? (The new Hovland pre was on the cover) It mentioned the S6e, but only in a few sentences and not in a very positive light.
Mind you, way out in the room isn't a problem for me. I can easily put them out around 3' before the wife starts complaining.
Hi Fi World stated the S6e was the gem in the "S" series and won their speaker of the year.
It also won some type of top award at Hi Fi News
Having heard both, the S6e justifies the higher price. The S5e was a bit better value but the price has gone up, now the S6e is the best value in the line in my opinion. You should listen to both before you allow reviews to make your decision. They both sound very good.
