    Yep, do a search in this forum. Plenty of info. I have the E80 mians, ec35 center e10 surrounds and n24 rear surrounds with Dayton 10" sub (BFD'ing today) with a Pio 014. VERy happy.

    I do not think you can beat the JBL's for the $$$ (if bought properly online, not at BestBuy). Their is certainly better for more $$$, but not at the price point.
    Mine sound GREAT to me!

    Phil is def. the JBL king around here, so he should be posting some Real good info and links soon!

    I'll second Mike, E80 and EC35 up front with Dayton 10". These speakers are definitely worth the price you can get them at online.

    I have last year's S-26II's for fronts and surrounds along with an S-CenterII. I think they sound unbelievable. Especially since I bought them online for 1/2 of BB's price!

    The intent of the Northridge E-Series is to provide Pro Sound and they accomplished that by utilizing technology developed by JBL's Professional division starting with their original N- & S-Series.

    Subjective reviews ((like by JoeyR, MikeyWeitz, Andre P, CNET, Secrets of Home Theater & Hi-Fi and Sound & Vision Mag.) and Objective Benchmarks (Sound & Vision Mag.) confirms JBL's success in providing the consumer quality at a moderate price!

    Like MikeyWeitz wrote, ... considerable savings can be obtained thru JBL authorized Internet Dealer's.

    NOTE: OneCall.com presently have the JBL's on-sale (linked to another HTF post).
