Over the past 45 days, we have been trying to organize a speaker shootout. To date we have three definites... and this has involved a LOT of involement from the manufacturers as to which speakers they want to send, the room size, pricing vs. the competition... etc... So far, for a two channel system, these three companies are involved.... 1. Ascend 340's with the matching bases and the Hsu STF-1 for $938 plus shipping. 2. Rocket 550 Mark II, $999 plus shipping. 3. Axiom M-80's for $1100 including shipping. The review will be done here, with links to other sites welcome. Also... Jon Lane and Audio Insider have an open invitation, and if anyone else wishes to participate, they are welcome.
