Williamg508, I do know what I am talking about. I have designed and sold high end for 29 years. I know Dan and I sell B&W. My mentors were Peter Snell, David Berning, Dale Pitcher, and I was voted top 20 most knowledgeable dealer in Bound for Sound Magazine.
The B&W's have a hot top end that makes the tweeter sound disconnected from the midrange and Krell is grainy with a bite at 14k that makes the 800 series sizzle.
Try Clayton on B&W's and you will think the Krell sounds like a Sony with power and bass and build quality and good looks. LOL
