I had an interesting discussion with a technician/salesperson at one of the few higher end a/v stores in my area. We started talking about speakers and he brought up the fact (to him) that tower speakers make poor fronts for a home theater setup. He said that because they are designed to play frequencies below 80 Hz, they interfere with the signal going to the subwoofer and distort the overall bass effect. He said that people buy towers expecting a bigger sound, but if you set them to the "large" setting on your receiver, then you distort the bass. If you set them to "small", what's the point of getting the towers in the first place. He ended by saying that towers are "old-school". He then proceeded to show me the M&K 750 MkII's and the S-150's. I must say that they did sound sweet & clean. He may have been knowledgeable, but I didn't like the way he came across. Too bad they are the only Rotel and M&K dealer in my area. Opinions?
