I was able to run around a bit this weekend and listen to some of the speakers available to me locally. I am trying to buy a new front stage and sub for HT only. I was able to listen to the Paradigm Monitor7s, Klipsch, PSB Image 6T, Sapphire (Tweeter stuff not ACI), Boston Acoustics, a small Energy system, and Mirage. I really liked the Sapphires and PSBs. Another factor is that I was always really partial to my Infinity Interlude bookshelves that I will be moving to the rear. It was really hard to do a comparo since the amps and rooms were different for all. I don't claim to have a great ear or anything so I won't give you my impressions and let everyone tell me that I'm wrong about this or that. I just know what sound I like. Here are some packages I'm considering. What do you guys think? 1) PSB Image 5T, 9 center (nice sound, blems form DMC )$850 2) Sapphire towers and center (nice and smooth, tweeter) $1000 3) Infintiy Interlude IL40s, and 36c center (available new on ebay) $900 4) Infinity Alpha 40, 37c center (Critchfield, little brighter than my ludes) $1000 Also would consider Rockets or Axiom system, but haven't heard either of them. I am using a DLS 3500 velodyne right now but will probably return it and get something better after I decide on the front stage. All this thinking is making my head hurt.
