I've been lurking on HTF for a while now reading great threads pertaining to HT components and systems. Now I'm putting together one of my own, so I'm hoping you all can help me. This is what I have picked out so far: Sony HDTV 46 in widescreen Sony STRDA4ES Sony Progressive Scan DVD With the exception of the DVD, everything will be a new purchase. Now my dillema resides in the speakers. I had my eye on the Athena ASF2's, which I've read good reviews, but no one seems to be able to really offer any in depth personal opinions. I can get the full set of Athena (front, rear, and center) for about $600 used (2 mo old). My second option is the Polk RTi70's with the CSi40 center. I can get this set-up for $825. I listen to 60% movies and 40% music. I have read a ton of posts on the Paradigms, B&W, Energy, etc., but haven't found a dealer in the area that sells these brands, so I can't hear them. I was going to take a leap of faith because of the price on the Athenas and I can hear the Polk at Circuiy City. Now I turn to you HT enthusiasts....what do you think? Polk for the quality or Athena for the price?
