Both great speakers. The Osiris are huge and a little laid back in the highs (I believe all Avalons were so prior to Eidolon era), you can maybe ask Deshapiro, he owned them prior to big Dynaudio's. I have the Savoy's in my showroom (DISCLAIMER: I'm the EW distributor for Italy) and they are a real reference speaker. They also weight a lot (410 lbs each) but not as the Osiris and come with custom casters. Their sound is timbrically similar to the Andra II but, because of the different load, your feeling is quite different. Keep in mind that they are designed mainly for mastering studios: dynamic capability, high spl and extreme timbric fidelity are the real targets. They also image extremely well, as the Andra's do. However, while the Andra's are more "musical" and sound "good" even with non perfect recording, the Savoy's, being more revealing and accurate, are less accommodating. This means that with the best recording you will be bring to the concert. As always, you should listen both for yourself before to make a decision. Best, luca.
