    I am trying to decide between the Revel M20, B&W 805 and Monitor Audio GR 10. I have been unable to listen to them side by side, and am having a very difficult time selecting. I am looking for a speaker that is not too picky about placement and performs relatively well off-axis. Any insight into these three would be much appreciated - I am also looking for a good amp to match and am considering Proceed, Anthem and Bryston. Thanks.

    Those speakers cover a wide range of prices, so price is not your main concern...

    I don´t like metal tweeters, but I have not listened to most, so it is what you like that matters, a friend just listened to the Revels and was impressed...

    Listen to Dynaudio Contour 1.1 or 1.3 too, or to Sonus Faber EAII, what I have, but no one can choose speakers for you...

    As for powers, Bryston easy...

    Where do you live?

    We keep the N805 on demo and have previously had various Revel speakers. We did a large system demo last year with the 805, 802 and HTM1, against a Revel system comprising Ultima Studio, Voice and Embrace. The Revel B15 subwoofer and Proceed AVP, PMDT, HPA2/3 were used throughout.

    The B&W system was far better than the Revels for music, and the Revels shaded it for films.

    Personnally I would go for the B&W N805. (Unless you can afford to go for the newer N805 Signature £2250).
