So what are your thoughts? I know there is a similar post on this but I wanted to add a few more specifics. I will be powering with a denon 3802 or similar quality receiver. Keep in mind that I also want a center channel that will blend seamlesly with the front and rears (I will most likely get an aditional pair of the same bookshelves for the rears). Right now I am leaning towards taking a chance on a svs sub to seal the deal unless something will match better with whatever speaks I end up getting. I apreciate your opinions and advice as I am a rookie to this and obviously want to get good gear if I am going to lay down the money. This is a great forum by the way. People are very helpful and friendly and most seem to be very knowledgeabale.
