Completely dependent on type of music and asociated equipment. I own both Wilson Sophias and B&W 804s I personally prefer my Sophia's to ANY other speaker. However the B&W gives a really nice presentation on certain types of music. I mostly listen to indie rock electronic music and classic rock. Mac and Krell oth make good stuff can you be more specific with the electronics because this greatly effects the sound probably as much as the speakers themselves. Also can you include source info? Digital or analog?
