If you guys want amazing sound paired to a TV look into Dynaudio XEO. Wireless active speakers (no amp required) with streaming. Incredible sound. Unobtrusive appearance if you get the bookshelf speakers which still kick hard.

Or I can provide some advice on components that will blow your mind for the same price as a set of B&O speakers.

I like B&O but if you heard my system which cost me $5k you'd be pretty amazed I reckon. For less than $4k you'd have 80 percent of what my system can do. I went stand mount speakers because I don't have a huge room (it's 5m x 5m) but it kicks arse and the soundstage and imaging is amazing.

My system - REL T5 subwoofer, Dynaudio Excite X12 speakers, Peachtree Audio Grand Integrated X1 Digital Amp with on board DAC - 2 x 770 watts per channel RMS into 4 ohms with tube pre-amp stage. It's a beast of an amp power wise but compact, nice to look at, and grips the dynaudios by the throat and makes them sing...

Anyway, sorry for the audio nerd post. I'll get back to cars now!

I just got an instant headache from reading all those specs  :p

It's the same old story, you can buy a family car which is faster than some exotics but we still buy exotics, don't ask me why LOL.

My last system was Paradigm, from memory with the amp it was just shy of $10K, the sound it delivered was really insane but I didn't really like the aesthetics, too bulky, I really like the clarity of the B&O speakers the other thing which I really like is their design  :D

$$$$$???

Big.
Blades 2 are 28k
Wilsons are 20k
Devialet 8k up to 22k for their most powerful amp

As for looks those blades are incredible in the flesh. Devialet amps also gorgeous build quality. Wilsons not going to win any beauty pageants but the sound is world class.

and I thought VAF at $15k was stretching it a bit

At least VAF look a lot better

I can't help people with aesthetics as they are personal.
But for sound the products i listed earlier are incredible.
Also check out speakers from Magico, Rockport, B&W 800 Diamonds, and my personal fave the Wilson Audio Sabrina…
