    For my future receiver ( Onkyo TX-SR601E ) i want to buy the best match pair speaker. I have listened Jamo with it but it was not x550. But it was nice. If you have any experience with these products or brands please write. And for you what can be the best match to Onkyo ?


    Jamo X 550

    Polk Audio R50

    JBL E90

    Thx from now...

    While being a Polk fan... I'm not a fan of the RT50's. they seem to be lacking. Better off geting some RTi6's and some stands IMO...but thats personal taste

    RTi6`s are more expensive than r50`s.

    You should consider looking at the JBL Studio series. I have 2 S312's a S-Center, and 2 S-26's and couldn't be more happy with it powered with a HK AVR-525. Some dealers still have them, and there is a gentleman on here who talks non stop about the S series and how blind tests have shown them to be most liked, even over much more highly priced brands. I will edit my post and include his name if I find it. I have listened to the E90 series at BB and thought it was really good. I think the main difference is that the S series has a 1" titanium dome driver, while the E and N series have a 3/4 inch titanium dome driver, someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Im sure studio series have more sound quality than Northridge E series but their prices also are spicey as hell for me.

    I just did that and it sounds marvelous! The tweeters in the RTi line are much nicer than the R. Now to sell my R50s...
