Thanks for your kind words. I picked the N804 for these reasons:

1. Since the N804 has the same midrange and tweeter as the best 800 series speakers, I could "hear" these more expensive speakers from ~400 Hz up, and understand the progress B&W has made over the years.

2. This is the least expensive 800 series speaker to use the FST midrange. Lower cost = more inmates and readers who might be interested.

3. I usually prefer floor standers over a bookshelf speaker that requires stands. Usually a bookshelf + good stands costs about the same as a floorstander in the line.

4. I missed the earlier posts about the N804. My positive experience with the Matrix 802 Series 2 (review on 10 Audio) several years ago urged the N804 review.
