I am at the point where I am trying to weigh the benefits of DIY against buying retail. Does diy mean better sounding speakers for less money? Are they a better value than say used retail speakers? What I'm looking for here is a bookshelf speaker and center channel. I initially was going to buy some Kef Q series speakers. But noticed that I could get some B&W CDM 1NT's off of audiogon for around $800. So thats where I'm at. I am trying to see if I can find a better value than the 1NT's for less money. A friend of mine has pointed out some Selah Audio speakers the JH3's. He says they will sound outstanding, but I have nothing to go on besides what he thinks of them. I think I am just looking for a little reassuring, since I won't be able to hear the speakers before I own them. I'm rambling...I'll stop. Here is a link the selah audio JH3's. Not much info on them though.
