I went down to JandR last weekend to listen to speakers. I've been pretty set on the JBL's as they're so often recomended in the Forum. I also listened to the Klipsch Quintets. I liked the crisp highs. however after coming home and searching on them, I read some say the high's sound good in the showroom, but too bright when you get them home. So, J and R had them for about $320, slightly more than the JBL's. I am fond of their small size, as they are more subtle then the bulkier JBL's (particularly the center). But I don't want to give up sound quality for asthetics. All things being equal, I'd probably pony up the extra few bucks for the small size of the Klipsh. But if the sound quality is not equal, well... Can anyone offer their comments on choosing between these two? Thanks.
