I have demoed each set up, but the comparision was unfar. The Energy take 5.2 I demoed in a sound room. The Def-tech pro cimema 100(80's in the rear) was in a wide open showroom. Even with the set back of a poor room the def tech sounded great. I am torn, I am looking on feed back on these two setups: Fronts: Definitive tech pro cimema 100 Center: def-tech pro ciimema 100 center rears: def tech pro cimema 80 Sub: SVS 25-31pci Recvr: Yamaha rx-v530 total cost $1600 setup #2 Fronts: Energy take 5.2 center: Energy take 5 center Rears: energy take 5.2 Sub: SVS 25-31pci recvr: Marantz sr5200 total cost 1500 My room is 11' by 17' with 8' ceilings Thanks!
