This is a general question, but one that concerns me. As we all seem to love great Home Theater as well as listening to at least 2 channel stereo. IMHO the upcoming SACD -vs.- DVD-A etc... fight has released a larger concern. How many speakers and of what type must I hunt down! I am armed with not nearly enough cash to purchase what I dream of. Consequently after listening to a very well rendered DVD-A my poor ears are left to nag me into submission. Then the situation I have been working on for over a year is suddenly drastically changed. I don't have the right set up...ack!!!! While SACD, DVD-A, and DPL and DTS all have enhanced my enjoyment they make me search for the next wonder solution. My current set up is now unacceptable. It belittles the joy of my search for that next plane of personal enjoyment. All of this muddles my darned upgrade path. The choices were once quite easy. Find a great center piece (any mid to high end Receiver) then find a couple of tower speakers such as Klipsch, Boston's, Acoustic Research, Infinity, Sonus Faber, Magneplanar...et all and we are set for excellent 2 channel music. But, now we have thrown the proverbial monkey wrench into the mix. Those Darned Engineers! It must be the ultimate love hate relationship. With my multi-channel DTS, DPL II, THX, Discreet, amp eating turbocharged monster receiver, Amp which has enough in's and out's to set a record for snake farming there is a sinister problem facing all of us. A challenge I will face with a grim smile. Which Speakers should I buy next! It matters not what is presently residing at home. They must be driven out! Whether tis' nobler in the heart to suffer the slings and arrows of...multi-channel music with perfectly (read mirror) matched ultra high quality speaker's dominating my listening environment. Or, to choose those cute, dare I say 'nearly invisible' home theater mini monitors that my significant other thinks easily fit into a modest (cough cough) decorator tasteful (what the heck is that anyway!/?) living environment. My bottom line to use a "business term" is this. When the feeling sizes me I wish to experience all that the director of a fine Spectacle (movie) can present on Saturday evening, or be swept away by great musical experience on a rainy Tuesday, then that is what I darn well want to do! Now, what are your feelings dear friends? I am leaning towards either JBL S-38's all around. Six of them. Or the Klipsch RF-3II's for fronts, RB-3's for surrounds and the RC Center. And no Sub for now. But, I just heard the Sonus Faber Concerto. I wonder if they take trade in's on Pick up trucks . Argh!!! there are so many choices and I'm not nearly confused enough yet!
