I do most of my music listening in the smallest room of my 3-bedroom house where I have an L-desk with my MacBook pumping out i-tunes. This room is 8x9x10 with the door permanently open. I currently have a 2.1 system that consists of two Axiom Algonquins facing me, each 4ft. from my ear, at desk level. I have a DefTech Super Cube 2 positioned in the corner behind my right shoulder, 8" above desk level, about 4' away. The system is powered by a Nikko Alpha130 through a Rotel stereo control amp RC-970BX. I am seeking to broaden my sound stage by moving up from my 2-way Axiom Algonquin bookshelves into a 3 or 4-way speaker. I've looked at B&W, Mirage, Paradigm, SVS, Polk, Dali, and a few other companies speakers and have not found a "more than 2-way" speaker at the right price level for me. (3k max) I recently stumbled upon the JBL SC2 centers JBL Home Audio and I'm finally thinking this might be my "buy" moment. (Just search JBL SC2 if my linkis denied.) However, I've found it wise to expose my purchase thoughts to forum scrutiny prior to hitting the "complete sale" button. The JBL SC2's are available for under $800 (including shipping) on Amazon. So my questions to you critical enthusiasts are: Do you think I will realize $800 worth of improvement with two of these JBL centers over my Algonquins? And- is it wise to use two centers as the "2" in a 2.1 set-up? PS. My Algonquins will not be wasted as I intend to use then as "6&7" to make my 5.1 HT into a 7.1 HT. PS.S. I'm very pleased with my Algonquins in this set-up but am seeking the ultimate in my price range. ANY input/critique on this matter will be appreciated!!!
