Well I got a chance to audition some different speakers in my price range at tweeters today. Must say nice store. Anyhow, After listening to things, polk sound the best to me. They have a nice warm sound I like. I think I have decided on a Denon 3803(yes i know its last yr model, but for less then a 2805, i think I prefer the little more power. Over a few new features) Now on to the speakers: The setup I decided on for polk was ($959 for pair)2x RTi10 front ($199) CSi3 center ($179 each) 2x FXi3 surround for sub, I'm undecided. none of the subs I heard had the "humph" that I wanted. My buddy has a Velodyne that is nice, but I didn't hear anything there that compared. Could be my buddy's is on hardwood, or settings. Not sure yet. Now my question. Where I live, near Greenville SC. There is not much selection on places to buy and audition items. I am curious how these speakers compare to the 'internet brands'. I hear many good things about axiom, swan, etc. But just dont have a place to audition them. Also curious about how SVS subs compare to velodyne/polk(not impressed with polk subs at all). If anyone can post comparisions of those speakers to these it would be nice. I prefer more of a nuetral/warm sound over bright. PS: The speakers will be used for DVd/Xbox mostly, and occasional TV. But I don't really care how TV sounds. PSS: They also carry Mirage speakers, which sounded very nice. Any opinions.
