I've been looking at upgrading my HT speakers. I've been leaning toward the Ascend CBM-170's for front, center, and three surrounds (6.1) and the Hsu VTF-2. But then their are all these other names that I seee popping up. I'm looking at about $1,000-1,500 for everything. Am I making the right decision or are there better speakers for that budget? Has anyone compared these brands to each other? If I could listen to them at a shop, that would be great but most of these brands aren't sold in shops. So I'm kind of relying on people's impressions that have bought these brands and have had the chance to compare them. Thanks.
