Glad you are as impressed with Boenicke as we all are on this thread. I have the W8 which replaced some Spendor S6E which I had used quite happily for 10 years. I was looking for a speaker of similar size but better quality.
What was the clincher with the W8 for me was the soundstage and imaging. All the musicians are spread out in front of you and each can be discerned easily. I put the Spendors back in the system to demo them to the guy who bought them, I was back to listening to music coming out of two boxes.
As Paul/Maverick says, give them time to run in - we’re talking months really. Then your gob will really be smacked!
I’m pretty sure the Boenickes are my end game speaker. It would have to take something pretty special to knock them off their pedestal - and with the same WAF.
