I have seen that the E90 floorstanders are now 500 for a pair. Are these fairly good for that kind of money or could I be doing better. I think they sound nice, and I'm strapped for cash. These could fit the bill, but if I could listen to something that may be better for the same money that could be an option. Would it better to flip an extra 100 and go with the Athena AS-f2s? for stick with some JBL action. I've heard both and like both, but will I get better midrange and highs with the JBL or Athenas? Would it be better to hunt out some Studio S38's instead of these E90s?? Thanks in advance.
