    I was looking to get some surround speakers (new to ht) and was looking at getting the package from JBl which includes 4 JBl N24, 1 JBL N-center, and the PB-10. I was wondering how this package is (i will be getting it from etronics for $430 american dollars is this a good deal????). Keep in mind i have a medium room and want to get the denon 1803 to power them. I will be watching about 60% movies (mostly divx with the TV-out on my computer) and 40% music. Also how is the pb-10 when compared to the sony saw-m40?? I can get the sony for about 25 bucks cheaper (don't want to mod it at all). Will this be a good set-up????

    Thanks

    p.s how is etonics as a online retailer????

    Do a search with NSP1 and WM40, lots of info.

    I think the general concensus is the WM40 outguns the PB10 for movies. I have not modified mine yet and it is a bit boomy for music.

    The NSP1 is a very nice starter package. When shopping for my set, etronics was not listed on the JBL website as an authorized dealer. Double check this is you're interested in warranty support from JBL.

    The price sounds about right. ~$250 for the NSP1, not NSP1 Mark II set, right?

    That price is way too high, even for the NSP1 II set. I bought mine (NSP1 II) from simplycheap.com for $200.

    The $430 price was an NSP1 AND a PB-10 sub. Either way i think you can do better than the PB-10 for similar money. I would have suggested the DLS 10" but it's no longer being sold. You might want to take a look around ebay and ubid for the Audiosource 15 and the Audiosource 12.

    I got my NSP package from Harmon-Kardon's Ebay store. Right from the manufacturer, new in sealed box, for 202.50 before shipping.

    It was brand new, but I am not sure about being an authorized reseller. I am actually looking to sell it (only had it for 6 weeks) because the upgrade bug is telling me to get Paradigms...

    I just purchased the NSP1 package on E-bay from Sell2All for $205 plus $20 shipping. The package is brand new but I'm not sure if they are an authorized retailer. Nevertheless, I haven't heard many, if any, stories of people needing to return their JBL's and at this price it is hard to go wrong. I know they have many more sets. Good luck.
