What else could somebody be looking for when they go to an internet forum?
I certainly have my own tastes in audio equipment (Vivid Speakers with MSB or VTL front end!!) but I've listened to quite a few and I'm trying to share my opinions while giving recommendations for the equipment I have laid eyes, ears, and hands on. My subjective opinion is based on my experience, although it is still very limited. As I said, I cannot recommend the B&W diamond series because of my first hand experience with them, but my opinion was shared by that of myslef, Irishdunn, and his father who sold the B&Ws instantly when we had the Kudos C30 and Harbeth Monitor 40.1s all together. I think the biggest factor was the room he is in and its arrangement of furniture. The Monitor 40.1 IMO is the better speaker, but it did not perform well in the constraints of his room. Compared the the B&W 803d, however, there was no comparison. Both the Monitor 40.1 and Kudos C30 blew it away.
