    Focal 165KP($355) vs. CDT es600($300) vs. HEX s600($250)...which would you choose?

    I'm trying to decide on these 3 options:
    -Focal 165KP($355)
    -CDT es620($300)
    -HEX s600($250)

    ...which ones would you choose? All are from people that bought them new, but NEVER used them (NIB)! -----OPINIONS NEEDED------

    Just out of curiosity, you do mean the CDT ES-620, right? Because the ES-600 are the mids only.

    I know there are a lot of other choices, but those 3 are the ONLY ones that people on here are selling at a USED price...yet new.
