Anyone know how the Revel Concerta2 S16 is?

I really liked the M16 review, but the S16's look really good. I would be using them as my main speakers in my living room along with a small Dayton sub.
I would be mounting them on the walls, just not sure of the height, I know it says something about 10-15 degrees above the listener.
Also the listener would not be centered in the middle of the speakers which would be about 8 feet apart, probably being about 2 feet off center to the right.
Maybe angle the left one slightly?
I know there not cheap, but it would probably be a once in a lifetime buy.

Given how other Revel speakers have measured there has been some speculation that the S16 just might be one of the best performing on-wall speakers available but so far no independent measurements that I'm aware of.

The S16 was the 1st Revel speaker I tried a few years back and I was very impressed with them. They are sealed but had respectable bass output, plenty to blend with a subwoofer with an 80-100Hz crossover. They sounded neutral and well integrated like all Revel speakers and I thought they looked good in the piano black finish. If I had to have an on-wall setup I can't think of anything I'd rather have to be honest.

That sounds great, any possible issues with vocal sibilance issues ? I was also considering The Dali Oberon 1's, but heard they were very harsh.
