    I used those as mains for 8 mounths, before I bought a pair of s38. The s26 are pretty nice, and would be great in a small room. The s38 have a better midbass, the sound seems fuller than the s26. I use my s26 now as rears, and they work even better. Look in http://www.hometheatermag.com/showarchives.cgi?16
    for a review of a s26 set.

    I had a set of S26 for my L/R speakers in a stereo setup. Great speakers. Doesn't go very low, but I can imagine once matched to a sub, they will be great. A little big as a bookshelf speaker, so I switched to Polk Audio's RT25i, but now switch back to the JBL's. $200.00/pair at J&R.
