    I'm unsure which way to go in terms of which speakers to purchase (i just may end up buying a pair of the mmg and a pair of the ascend acoustics 170 and comparing them in different venues).

    My room: 14 x 20
    Equipment: sony 999es sacd player
    SVS 20-39pc+ sub
    ...just sold my 2 channel rig and main speakers
    and am looking at a mmultichannel amp to replace
    it (and have enough muscle should i pursue the maggies
    route), ie, Rotel RMB 1075.

    Possible maggie route:
    MMG at rear, MG12 front and matching CC3 center.

    Possible Ascend acoustics route:
    170s rear
    340s front l/r and matching 340 center.

    I watch alot of HT, but also watch/listen to alot
    of DVD concerts (from Rush to Diana Krall) so musicality
    and versatility are important to me.

    Good question I wondered the same thing a few times and actually had been meaning to ask as I am considering trying the sub/satellite route and these both come highly rated...
