Best Solid State for Avalon Isis
Most probably this:[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]Discalaimer: I'm the Italian Viola distributor but the match with the Avalon Isis is really incredible and worth to be mentioned. 
MBL 101e's vs. Soundlab U-1's
Hello David,if a dynamic speaker is still in your options but you would like to get the transparency, speed and purity of timber of esl's and ribbon speakers, I do suggest you to give a look at the bigger Egglestons (disclaimer: I am their Italian...

Jadis Eurythmie - Anyone ever listen to them?
I have a friend here in Italy who is looking to sell his Eurythmies at a fair price. They are perfect and he is a gentlemen too. Feel free to email me if you are interested in this pair of speakers. Best, luca. 
Thoughts on Egglestonworks Andra II

Wilson WP7 versus X1 - Gen III and Maxx II's
Trust Oneobgyn, your room is definitely too small for the Maxx's or X-1's. The WP7's too seem sacrificed there: how you can ever consider a bigger speaker ? Are you just looking for resonances and wall shacking ? Sorry but your plan seems really a... 
Kharma CRM3.2 FE vs Sonus Faber Amati Anniversario
Check out the Eggleston Andra IIs, they could be your cup of tea: great dynamics with deep bass, refined sound, transparent but never harsh, good looking (IMO) and not large as the Vandys.
