    Hey, I'm building a 2 channel system. So, I was wondering if anyone has experiences with these companies( they all make good speakers but I'm uneasy about them)

    Sweet 45 views and no bad experiences!

    This board answers my questions in the most subtle ways.

    I wonder If I should go bookshelf this time....

    I wouldn't say it was no bad experiences as much as NO experience...

    I've heard of them, but never actually heard them, so can't help you there.

    Some people click on the thread just to find out they've never heard the brands you listed.

    Well, I can just throw those names out the window...
    "overly warm"
    "poor imaging"
    "not much there"
    "poor sound"
    Also, I can't demo them without traveling to either the west or east coast.
    Shit, I'm back to where I started. Why do I torture myself with this?

    You might get more help if you asked for some recommendations and gave a budget. I'm sure there are plenty of opinions to go around that would get you back on track again.

    hi what can you listen to locally? can you audition Sonus Faber? do you have a tweeter local to you? I think they carry Sonus. I find them to be a very musical speaker...

    I have not had the opportunity to audition the 2 brands you mention.

    Both companies are absolutely first rate. I own the JMR Twins and I have not heard better for the money (and I've heard alot). Castle makes great speakers as well, but my knowledge of this brand is strictly anecdotal.

    Brian's right, a lot more folks over at AA have experience with these brands. I've heard various Castle models sound pretty good, but never took ar real serious listen.
