One thing not mentioned. While Spitfire does make a sample player that could be seen as a competing product to Kontakt, most of what they make is sound libraries that are used within Kontakt (that is what you saw as the colourful Spitfire strips on the Kontakt screen).

Also, buying Kontakt and Spitfire to do a little light background music for an audiobook, would be wildly overkill. Unless you have $1000 burning a hole in your pocket, you might want to look at the Spitfire LABS free set of virtual instruments, the Spitfire BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover (also free, requires filling out a survey if I recall), and any library on this site for the DecentSampler sample player (also free).
