You also might want to look for a pair of Spendor 9/1. The floor standing version. They sound great. I had to sell mine because I moved to a house with a smaller music room. Many regrets.

I spent one afternoon auditioning the 100s, along with Verity Fidelios. The 100s sounded boxy, slow, and "old." The system was first-rate: Thor tube cd (player, I believe), Thor electronics. We also switched out to some solid state (Jeff Rowland) and the mismatch continued. The Verity won out in pretty much all categories. I bought a pair soon after.
