    Hi,
    Any opinions on which would go better with Sony SA-WM40 Sub, the JBL N24's or Home Theater Direct Level 2's? I only need 2 mains plus the sub for now.

    I noticed on Harman's ebay store they have a NSP1 speaker package that has been going for around $150 plus shipping. It consists of 4 N24's + a center channel speaker. I don't currently have the need for the extra speakers but for the price it might be a good deal for future expansion, or just for the spares.

    If anyone has a better suggestion for something in the same price range I'm listening. :)

    Thanks,
    BrianGC

    I wouldn't go with the N24II's as the sound from the N26II's is far better and not that much more money. You can get the N26II's (in canada) for about $75 - $100 more and the sound is leaps and bounds better than the N24II's. Go to your local BB or CC and give the two a listen. The N24II's would be a good idea in the future for rear speakers. Just my opinion but go have a listen and decide what you think.

    P.S. I wouldn't worry about matching the sub to the speakers as it isn't important (IMHO). Timber matching your fronts, rears and center is wise (IMO) but I wouldnt worry about the sub.

    Mike.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the replies guys, I usually manage to makes posts that not many reply to. LOL

    Phil, I think your reply may be the best one I've had to any post, ever. [​IMG]

    I may just try to bid on one of the NSP1 packages Harman has on Ebay. They are the NSP1, not the NSP1 II, but looking at the JBL website the technical specs for both sets appear to be identical.

    They've been going for approx. $150 + shipping. That's barely more than Best Buy sells 1 pair of N24II's for.

    Even if I only use 1 set of the N24's now, I'll have the other + center in reserve for later.

    Thanks again,
    BrianGC

    Brian, You won't be disappointed. I have had the NSP1 II setup for several months and love it. It was a big upgrade from what I had. The Sony sub is what I was going to get, but went with the now discontinued DLS 10. If you can pry someone fingers off a DLS 10 I would recommend it.
