Todd Krieger over at He asylum wrote a review of the HE10.1s. He guessed that these speakers (and the 12.1s as well) would probably expose the shortcommings of a lesser solid state based system. Now, I want to buy the HE12.1s and use an Onkyo TX-SVS15PROII with a SONY CDP-C515 as the source. The Onkyo, does stereo well, but the Cd player is a "budget" player. I would have gone for between 100 and 200 when it was new. Do any of you think the source would drasticly effect the sound? I will be upgrading the source to a good universal player as soon as I get the $$$.
