    I'm in the market for some new HT speakers, and would like to select a brand/series that has dipole/bipole speakers for surrounds, as opposed to plain bookshelfs (this setup would be 90% HT..)

    I am looking around base model up to mid range but not too expensive...what are some brands other then Paradigm and Klipsch that offer good sounding dipole/bipoles and speaker package? [​IMG]

    thanks

    Kef
    M&K
    NHT
    Castle

    Mordaunt Short
    Polk

    Not speaker "packages" though, individual speakers.

    JBL has same dipole/bipole speakers for surround use also. I personally have an old set of Energy RVSS dipole/bipole surrounds that are great.......... I believe Energy still makes a d/b surround speaker in the Conn series........

    Doesn't B&W have some? They tend to be a bit pricey though.
