I am very interested in upgrading my fron speakers and for the price I am leaning toward these 2 speakers. Since I don't have a way of auditioning either of them I am going mainly on what I have read. I am fully aware that speakers are highly personal and the listener's ears are the final judge as to sound quality but I would greatly appreciate it if any of you whom either have one of these speakers or has had the opportunity at some point to hear both of them to give me an opinion. I would greatly appreciate your response. Thanks.
