I own the BR03s, Elac Uni-fi UB5s, Klipsch RP-600Ms, and KEF Q100s (not the Q150s). The Uni-fi UB5s are the best of this group, BUT you need very good amplification to get the most out of them--something costing at least $800, most likely, something like the Arcam SA10, which is widely on sale these days for $799, or the Cambridge CXA81 or something comparable. I paired mine to a Musical Fidelity M2si, and it sounds great--almost as good as KEF LS50s. The Onkyo A-9110 is the only cheap amplifier that I have heard that pairs ok with the UB5s, but at this budget amplifier level, you may prefer some of the other speakers. The BR03s have a big soundstage and excellent midrange. I personally think they need a subwoofer, as the bass was weak for me--this is very much a function of setup and room, though, so others may find a different outcome. If you are listening to vocals or jazz, I think these types of music work best with the BR03s. I will say that at $350, the BR03s are a great deal. Personally, I like the Klipsch RP-600Ms better than the BR03s--they work very well with cheaper good amplification, like the NAD C316 BEE. The RP-600Ms just sound great--not so much making an amazing soundstage of imaging with crystal precision, but just making the music fun with good bass. The RP-500Ms play well with a wide range of music, but classical is the least effective. The KEF Q100s are very good speakers, but they are my least favorite in his group. I understand that the Q150s are similar to the Q100s except with more bass, and the reasons that I find the Q100s the weakest in this group are not due to lacking bass. Just a less appealing speaker, overall, but still quite nice.

For some reason this isn't working. The site won't let you check out with this sale item in your cart. At least for me.

Never heard of Triangle but they have really good ratings.
Kef is well known and I trust their quality. A little overpriced but at decent sales, I would get Kef

If you are in market for speaker for this price range, check Wharfedale Diamond225.
Good looking and sounding speaker.

Any indication the BR02 is going to go on sale again? And maybe to this extreme? Not sure if my room is large enough to need BR03, but at this price, I may just do it.

Have you heard them? Just curious.. have seen a lot of rave reviews for these bro3s.
If so, how would you compare them to the 225s, ub5s, rp600m, or q150? (Similar price category)

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder...I think these look a lot better than the Wharfedale Diamond 225
