    Specifically on the 901, the original used the same CTS 4.5" full range speaker that were used in the original Auratones. They were inexpensive little speakers that did not...

    That's my take.

    While the Revel Salons and the JBL M2's are both superior speakers in terms of directivity and measurements in general, to me they are less "real" than a properly executed system...

    I will give you one person's opinion. Since you have a subwoofer, for me the answer is easy. I would go with the K2S9900.

    The M2 is arguably the better speaker, but for me the dynamics of the 4"...

    I would submit your preference is a minority viewpoint, not unique, but not one held by most of us.

    FWIW: Even the 4345 has a fair amount of industrial design in evidence. ;)

    Hi-Fi Bling

    I am not generally a fan of bling in Hi-Fi or in general.
