But seriously, why are you so hot for them? Have you auditioned them at home?

I have the Matrix 805s and I love them. Altho' the Nautilus looks better and has some technical improvements I believe the sound is still much the same. Try them with your amp, tt and cd as there may be a problem system matching but in general they are system friendly. They do show up bad recordings when matched with analytical amps/sources.

For a small room and at the price I really rate them, however you shoul;d audition a couple of others of the same quality and if you get the chance try the Ruark Equinox.

Interestingly enough, Krix also makes a speaker called the Equinox. Is the Ruark Equinox a bookshelf sized speaker?

No i have not auditioned them.I just moved into a smaller apartment and thought speakers on stands would be better, but the apogees do sound good in nearfield listening.Guess i have audio nourosa or what ever.What about Proacs they sound good too...
