I've been looking at a few different sets of front towers for my system, and a local place has the Monitor's for a decent price. I was looking at the Silver series, but the salesperson (whom I've known and trusted for many years) informed me that the Bronze B4's are supposed to be a little better in all around sound than the Silver S6's that I was listening to. Can any one confirm or dispute this for me? For me, the Bronze B4's are a solid $400 CHEAPER than the Silver S6's, but I've always kind of thought that you get what you pay for. If it makes any difference, I'll be upgrading from a (don't laugh) Polk RM6000 system-in-a-box. I have a Sony WA500 12" sub, and I'll get the rear and center speakers once I get the towers. I'm running a Yamaha HTR-5550 reciever as well. My initial concern is musical quality, but I will be using them for movies as well. Good gravy, that was much longer a post than I intended.
