Any opinions about snell speakers for home theater and music? Does any one know where to find a price list for them?

I just purchased 3 Snell XA1900 L/C/R speakers for my front soundstage and a pair of the 30mps surrounds. Snells are quite bright out of the box and take quite a while to break in, but once they do, they sound great. But they are pricey - the XA1900 are $1500 each and the rears are $1800/pr. The matching sub is $2400, but, since I have an SVS already, no need for the snell sub.

I've had my .5 series for the past year. E-5 up front. I picked them up a a local Home Theather dealer that decided to stop carrying the Snell line. The rears have a real nice design wall mount that will allow for rear wall, side wall or even ceiling mount! Too cool. What made the sell was price and sound. The six package speaker deal for 2200 was very aggresive. The sound, when compared to other speakers for 2200, was outstanding. Trust me, when we kicked in 'The Matrix' the entire store came running to our room to see what the heck we were doing. Plain stero listening is a joy as well. The E-5 just fill the room.

As for price/reviews I'd visit:

Pick the speaker your interested in and see what others paid and think about it. The Snell web site itself is very good:

They do answer e-mail as well. I'm hoping they give factory tours! I'd love to visit the birthplace of my speakers.

Hope this help,
John
