Greetings, My first post! IMHO this forum is far better than the US forums Hometheaterforum.com & avsforum.com (note the S). The US forums have become info-mercials for SVS subs and Rocket speakers. (A chinese import ) There is a push for VeloHGS18 here but it is, at least, based on more than hype. FINALLY, I am in the US & trying to decide between the REL Stentor (which has snob appeal here since it is Brittish) and the VeloHGS18. I have been advised that the REL is more musical and will blend better with my Vienna Acoustics Mahlers, Oratorio & Waltz's. Something about the 3-wire, high-level neutrik connection? Any opinions are greatly appreciated. REL Stentor 3 is $5000.00 USD. HGS 18 is $2,000.00 USD. ALso, What is the price difference "over there"?
