Very Elegant , You ‘lucky Man’ And of course the good Mrs.Keeping the tease alive... Botticelli X. I can say this... if ever a speaker had a high WAF, the Botticelli are "loved" by my wife. Sure, she loves the sound too, but she really loves the look.
And let me say, out of the box (they are still on sliders) these promise to be something very special. I've not had a speaker in my room before that goes this deep—essentially flat 22hz–40khz.

Is that some kind of resin floor BobAnd just arrived this morning... BAYZ Courante 2.0. What a relief, I was able to lift each one and carry it downstairs without needing a tractor and team of strong friends! Exceptionally well packed. All three manufacturers... Diesis, Alsyvox, and Bayz understand what is needed to protect their creations from the hazards of international shipping.

I have not yet received my Bayz speakers. But I expect, (purely speculation), the presentation will be the defining characteristic due to the Bayz omni-directional radiation pattern. It will be interesting to hear how the bass is presented
Yes but will he be allowed to say !Botticelli X do look good in your room.
Going out on a limb here the Bayz will be not be exciting as positive a reaction from your wife.
You waved off early concerns of your room being set up to accommodate the needs of all three speaker sets. With everything in house it will be interesting to find which you personally prefer with loaner MBL and eventually Achilles amps. I can feel the tension building.
Some of my audio buddies have come over for early tastes, before the meal is fully cooked. Of the Diesis and Alsyvox the initial comments are both are exceptional speakers with somewhat different presentation. My reaction is they are kind of a left brain, right brain dichotomy. My friends are completely torn which they would want in their Christmas stocking.
Wow they look awesome.Well, the BAYZ are actually very, very cool looking speakers. They are hanging out in the back of the room with the Diesis. I can't wait to move them up front and feed 'em. I'm sure I won't actually wait long...
(A lesson in perspective… amazing how the right speaker appears so much smaller with the camera off to the side like this. The curved shape really exacerbates this visual distortion.)

None are “box” speakers, which is all I have known, so yes indeed this will be a most interesting and educational adventure
A couple thoughts... at this point any comments are suspect as all this new kit needs time to burn in, and only then will I begin to tweak speaker setup to see how I can optimize each pair to its full potential.A personal audio journey intersecting with becoming a dealer need not stand between constructive assessment of his listening room on WBF. No questions if familial love is sincere there and only a small one (self-initiated) remaining over how it will be capable of bringing out the finest in all the children during this adventure.
Perhaps I drew open the door on casual assertions rephrasing the open question below at exact moment it gained prominence.
