Thank you to all who have responded so far.To Steve,  You make several good points However, my point about "good value" has little to do with how speakers look or the appearance  of  the cabinet.Sound quality is the most important issue. However, ... 
Revel Performa F-206 versus B&W CM-10S-2 How might they differ in sound quality??
Thank you to all who responded so far. To Erik and Shadorne: I think your comments are right on target about the Revel F206 versus B&W CM10 S-2. I think the difference you indicate touches on the old issue of "euphonic" vs "analytical". The B&...

Do I have to spend $4000 plus to get a better sounding speaker than GET model 7 ?
I am curious why Martin Logan planar speakers have not been recommended by anyone so far.  Does it have to do with its narrow soundstage and somewhat finicky placement problems??Thank you,   S.J.  
$1000-$2000 Floor-standing speakers for larger room w/NAD 326bee
Check out either the Golden Ear Technology model 7 ($1395) or the larger model 5 which is $1995.  They are great all around speakers and  their efficiency  is  87 or 88db.  The NAD 326BBE should work  particularly very well with the model 7's  The...

To Avanti 1960,  Thanks for the comments. I am not sure I hear some of the flaws you point out about the GET model 7's  What you note about the dispersion of the tweeter  seems on target and the soundstage goes little beyond the outer walls of the... 
Do I have to spend $4000 plus to get a better sounding speaker than GET model 7 ?
To 213 runnin:  Thank you for the support. However, I may be suffering from "analysis  paralysis"  as you suggested. The issue for me is whether how much more performance is available beyond what I hear from the Golden Ear Technology model 7. Ther...

To hfiron.  Thank you for the additional info. The HR-1's are $4895, the much smaller and less gorgeous HRRx is $2495......$2400 price difference may account for their starling performance.Regrettably, I have abandoned auditioning any of the DECWA...
