    I have not heard the specific models you have listed. I am biased toward MS products so I would recommend them as a smart and safe buy. In the past, I have owned Wharfedale Diamond 9.1's ane they are okay but the MS Avant 902's are significantly better and also less expensive. One of our other forum member does own Canton speakers so maybe he can fill you in on their qualities.

    I can't vouch for the MS or the Canton, but I have a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 9.4's and I would definitely buy them again. Wharfedale (especially the Diamond series) seem to be about "bang for the buck". Perhaps someone who has heard the 6R's will chime in. Good luck.

    I think if you have a chance, listen to all three. I support the Cantons but they do need break in time. Out of the box they sounded ok., but...the bass was boomy and they where very bright for a silk dome tweeter. But after I got them broken in they settled down and became a very nice speaker. I would buy them again.
