Swan 2.1's, anyone have a chance to hear these beauties?

I am planning on moving my NHT speakers down to the living room where they sound much much better so I can go with a dedicated 2-channel setup in the small den. These swans may be exactly what I am looking for. Also I've considered the Swan 6.1's and shortly after realized I couldn't part with that much money for a speaker, not while in college making $9.25/hr... Whats cool is that the drivers and their specs are available on parts express under "hi-vi", and with my rookie DIY experience this is comforting, to see the drivers up close and personal...

If you don't have a BFD for your sub, get one fast!
If you don't have REW, get it now!

I have heard so many good things about the Swans. They seem to get a lot of attention at AVS and also seem to be big bang for the buck.

They also make some really cheap and really awesome computer speakers – can’t beat them for the price. Many of the user reviews compare them to speakers in the $1000 range! I added an e-bay’d M&K 8” sub to mine – the result is a fabulous audiophile-grade system for your computer for under $400.

Wayne, i've heard many great reviews of those speakers you mention. They're in another league compared to most multimedia computer speakers from a pure SQ standpoint.

I have had alot of Swan speakers and have been really happy with them.
Overall great sq and amazing finish.

I can`t comment on the D2.1SE but i had the D2.1SE custom from theaudioinsider and that`s one amazing speaker, it`s really fun listening to music with them and rediscover your whole music collection.
