I like my Motion 40's very much. I originally wanted the 60XT but couldn't bring myself to pay the extra $1000! I have come to realize for my room, these are perfectly fine and I do not feel I am lacking in the base department.
In fact, I listen to all my music with Tone Controls Defeated and still feel I have enough base for my tastes.
I do love the look of the Logan's, as you stated, they are finished very nicely and look beautiful, I really like the metal grilles and keep them on all the time. Even though it is just my wife and I in our house, I am afraid if I take the grilles off, something will happen and puncture the speakers. I am paranoid I guess, LOL.
I like the clarity and warmth of the Logan's. I could only compare it to entry level Elacs and some B&W's at Best Buy. I think the B&W's might have been a bit on the bright side for me.
So far I am loving them.
