I am considering either the NHT SB1 or the Energy C1 bookshelf speaker for mains. The only dealers for these speakers are over 100 miles away so I won't be able to audition them. I am considering them for the good reviews and the size and appearance because the WAF is very high. I have an NAD T743 receiver that will power them along with a Def Tech 8" sub. Right now I want to get the mains and will add the center and rears later on. Please let me know your thoughts as to which speaker sounds best between these 2 models. I'm leaning towards the NHT because I love the high gloss piano black finish.
