My Infinity and Marantz setup is not cutting it anymore for the music Ive been listening to recently (Evanescence, hard rock etc.). I bought the SR6200 AV reciever and DV4300 dvd player less than two months ago so I will be keeping those but I would like to switch my Infinity speakers to ones that are more "hard-hitting" and lively. The Infinity and Marantz combo produce a very smooth and detailed sound but lacks a bit in the midrange, especially for this type of music. I checked out Sound & Vision and Stereophiles review of the JBL S38's and it got me interested, especially for the price they have them for at J&R so I will probably go check them out. Any other bookshelves that you guys would recommend to take a look at in the same price range as the S38's or for a bit more? Also, what stands are you guys using for the S38's (want to stay under $100 for stands plus space is a important factor since it will be used in a 12 x 12 room). Last, will placing the S38's in a upright position rather than the intended horizontal position alter its performance in any way? I use my system mainly for 50% music and the other 50% for live concert DVDs with the occasional dvd movie.
