Swan Diva 5.1 V 5.2 ($370 v $692)

Hi, setting up my first audio sound system and I am as much confused as excited. My system is primarily for audio, room size is approx 4m by 9m, musical tastes indie, rock, funk. My current dilema is which pair to go for. After digging through the net and listening to various brands at stores, I've decided to go for Swans (even though conventional wisdom says listen before you buy) Now I'm unsure which model of Swans to get, 5.1 or 5.2 How much of a difference in sound etc is there? I can get a pair of new 5.1 for US$370 or the 5.2 for US$692. Thats a big price difference. I must admit I much prefer the looks of the 5.2 and I think it has a higher wife acceptance value. I believe the 5.1 is very tall. Can I justify spending over $300 extra on the 5.2 when I've yet to get an amp and cable.
Thanks for your advice.

if you are going to get the budget stuff, go with the ones that have been reviewed a bit..

Look up AudioEngine A5.. those get great reviews.
