first off, i would like to say thank you to all the ppl who wrote about their svs'... i got the pb2+ about a week and a half ago to compare it against my friend's m&k mx350 and it was absolutely awesome. needless to say i will be staying with the pb2+. that being said, i have been trying to figure out what r the best front 3 speakers around the 2000 and under range and also the best 5 speakers for around 3000 and under. i have currently listened to the m&k s250 (if i go with m&k it would be the s150's which i imagine sound almost the same) and also the b&w cdm1nt (if i buy b&w i would probably wait till i can get the 705 which is replacing the cdm1nt). i have also read about the rocket 750 and the axiom m60ti. as far as the m&k's vs the b&w's, it was a catch 20/20 for me. i love the m&k's for ht and i spent a whole weekend watching movies at my friend's house with those speakers and my pb2+ connected (his doorman came up and made me turn jurasic park III down lol), but i felt that something small was missing for music. the b&w's i thought were absolutely awesome for music but not as good for ht (i did not have a prober setup to compare the ht for the b&w though because his center channel was messed up). i am sure that i will use the system more for ht but i really want it to sound very good for music considering the money i am putting into this. if anyone has compared any of these speakers or recomends either of them (or has compared another speaker that u recomend against one of these), i would very much appreciate your input. also if there r any ppl that have the axiom m60 or m80, or the rocket 750's that live in the nyc area and would allow me to listen to them briefly i would definitely appreciate that as well.
