All three are great speakers. It is a matter of personal preference which one is best. In order, I prefer PSBs, the CM5s and then the Kefs. I like the Revel Performa3s better than any of them but again, all personal preference. My opinions and my taste are exactly that, mine.

You behave to listen to them to see which one you like best.

I would recommend the Focal Chorus 806V.

I think they are the best-sounding of all.

Music Direct has a fantastic price on them: $599/pair marked down from $1000; what a great deal on some superb speakers.

The KEF R300 is very good also...but $1799? A bit overpriced, methinks.

LS50 would be my choice over the R300....cheaper too.

heard about ravel performa too. thank you very much, will try. btw, what should be a fair price in your mind for a used pair in very good condition?

thanks again.

I have a pair of LS50's and when paired with a sealed sub, they impress me to no end.

The Revels are not available on line and my experience has been that dealers are not willing to deal prices down on new equipment. I paid $1500 plus tax for the 105s. To me it would be like buying a demo 20-35% off depending on how credible the seller is and whether the speakers were properly driven. So $1000 - $1200 would be what I would be willing to pay for a pair that is in great shape and was driven by a 60w to 100w power amp. Though in practice you might find them cheaper. The M106s are $2000 new so I would adjust the factors accordingly.
