I've been looking around for a new speaker set to go with my new place (moving in around December). It's got a fairly small (narrow) living room so I don't need anything too big -- I think bookshelf speakers would do fine. Also, these will be for 90% movies, 10% video games. I don't listen to music unless I'm in the car. I'm a bigger fan of full, natural sound rather than bright, vibrant ones. For example, Boston Acoustics, Energy, JBL, and most studio monitors appeal to me, but Klipsch speakers (horns ugh) make me cringe. Here are the brands I've been considering. I don't really need a sub since I have a JBL PB12 right now, and I'll probably just upgrade to a Hsu or SVS eventually anyway. - Axiom Audio (M22ti + VP100 + QS8) - Rocket by Onix ELT - Aperion Audio (though I hear that these sound "thin") - Ascend Acoustics (CBM170 + HTM200) - Swan Diva (2.1 + C2 + R2) - Onkyo SKS-HT510 - Home Theater Direct Level Three - Fluance AV-HTB I've also considered Paradigm, Mirage, and there's a Magnolia Hi-Fi that just opened up here offering sales on Definitive and MK. Now, I know not all the speakers I mentioned are in the same league, but I'm looking for the best bang for my buck here. "Real" speakers are still a fond fantasy for some day years from now.
