High end nearfield test

Perhaps it's time for another thread to cover the relationship of some monitors released since this comparison, such as the Kii Three, the Buchardt, APS Klasiks, and the JBL 708P and 705P to the winning contenders in this round which appear to be the Amphions and the Geithains.

JBL LSR 708i vs Amphion One 18´s vs --what other should be mentioned?---

I am testing the Jbl 708p right now. Will report back but off hand I can say the sound stage is wide and amazing. The bass is super tight and low and clean. No sub needed for sure.

JBL 708P or Dynaudio BM15A?

...BM15a with 10" woofer but still lack of low-end quality, what is its advantage compared with BM6a? At this point, JBL 708P will be better based on current feedbacks.
