I have been trying to find a good speaker system of late and at the moment I am trying to compare Aperion audio Intimus 5.1 (12'sub-250 watts) with Home theater Direct's level three 5.1 system (150-watts). Though both systems are the same price Home theater direct will give you 4 towers plus center and sub for 1300 while the Aperion audio system costs the same but only comes with bookshelf speakers for the front and rear left and rights. Has anyone heard both and can make some judgements? Or does anyone have better speakers for the same price in mind? Thanks.
