    I need to make a definitive choice:
    My cousin will bring me from USA some system, Im from argentina, South America.
    Could be: a nsp1 jbl n package.
    or a Sony 835 ( i heard that this system is good, but i have no problem with speakers size could be medium or small)
    or a "mixed" s center, s36 mains and n24 surrounds.
    My problem is the weight of the system, he could carry a 30lbs system and other 20-25lbs for the sub.
    i have my HT in my living room, is a small apartment, i dont need huge power
    I use a pioneer 509 ddigital receiver 5.1 100wx5.
    help me please!!!! I´m very impressed of knowledgment of people of this forum, so im asking for mercy!!! i need to stop thinking and buy something!!!

    the mixed s-center, s36s, and n24s will sound hte best, but i dont know how the weight will figure in.

    i have the nsp1, so i can recommend that, its a very good system for the size and especially price.

    i cant say much about the sony set, other than sony isnt a very well respected speaker manufacturer, especially on the low end (save for the wm40 sub).

    Another vote for the NSP package. I know the N24s are 4.5 lbs. and the N-Center is 10 lbs. Add the box and packing materials and it will put you right around your 30 lb. limit.

    Check the JBL website for specs on the S series. I don't think they use the same molded (plastic?)enclosures as the N series, so they will definitely put you over weight.
