    After researching for far too long, I finally made the plunge into HT and got the Onkyo 575x on closeout. It arrived yesterday (I was expecting to get it Tuesday) so I was a little unprepared speaker wise.
    I got a little anxious and picked up a pair of JBL N26 at BB for my temporary mains. I have spent a lot of time auditioning different speakers (the JBL's were never one of them) and am pretty set on PSB Image 2's. None of the local PSB dealers will negotiate at all, so I will have to find a good online dealer.
    My question is this...has anyone compared the JBL vs. PSB? My intention was to take the JBL's back once the PSB's arrived or I could make the them my rears and get the PSB for the front. But after reading so many rave reviews on the JBL's, would I be better off sticking with them for everything (besides sub).
    BTW, the reciever kicks ass!

    Shielded 2 way center
    1/2 tweeter
    2X4 woofer

    Alpha Intro LR ( SRP $199.00)
    I have the Intro LR's and love them.For fronts I have the Stratus Silver & center i have the Centrey ci.
    I could not find a price for the Alpha center or A/V. But If the Alpha A/V are too much try the Alpha Mini's.
    Hope this helps.
