Here are my meanderings through speakers in the last 2 years. I started with a Bose AM6 setup and realized that Bose although attractive sound terrible. ( This wesite was a lifesaver) I then auditioned several towers from Bose,Polk,JBL,and Sony. My Budget kept me from anything but the Sony's so I picked up four Sony MB100H's and put them on stands around my room. For $100 I had a much better sounding theater than the $600.00 Bose setup. Finally this week I have upgraded to Polk audio R20 bookshelfs for the front and rear ($50 each at Frys) and a Polk CSI20 ($97 from Frys). I think my system sounds incredible. I had a borrowed set of Paradigm Atoms but I prefer the sound of the Polks. They just sound a little more natural to me. I finally sat back this afternoon and listed to the Eagles Hell Freezes Over Dvd and I feel so gratified. I just wanted to thank all of you fellow HTF brothers and sisters for all of your knowledge and recommendations. Here is to many more years of theater bliss.
