    You won't miss so much that it will kill you. I have a Marantz SR6200 which is 6.1 capable, but and I set it up with a rear center for a week, then took it down because I have nowhere to mount or put the rear center permanently right now. I enjoyed the sound, but 5.1 still sounds great to me.

    thats exactly what i thought and to think that its almost twice the price of an 1802 here in manila. 7.1, thats a different story. do you think 1802 is a nice choice to pair up with 303?

    Ryan,

    If ou can swing t take a look at the 601 SIII. I was very much impressed with this speaker over the 303 and is improved over the 601 SII. I actually thought the old 302 was better than the 303.

    Good luck!

    I'd tend to agree with Gil, the 601 would be better. I like the 602s personally, but they are both excellent speakers. I went with Paradigm Mini Monitors - the sound is also excellent, and they cost less.

    i have the brochure oh these new hot 600 series 3 speakers ans man, they are so hot! the only problem is, the distributor here in the philippines still doesnt have these speakers. i think it may take some time to get these babies. thats why you guys are so lucky, you always have the new ones available right away, and even the my dream sub, which is an SVS ofcourse!!!
