    Are there speakers that are specifically made for HT? It seems some speakers just sound more dynamic than others when playing movies. Is this because of the acceleration of digital sound (no compression)compared to analog? My Polk R15 speakers sound great, but they don't seem to have the high frequency "zip" that my HT-in-a-box speakers have (Kenwood). Why is this?

    No, but some speakers are more dynamic and exciting sounding than others. Ever listened to a big Klipsch speaker?

    You could play with tone controls if you want to get more "zip" in the sound, or you could wait a bit and see if the sound of those Polk speaker doesn't grow on you. Especially if you listen at loud volumes, I have a feeling the better speakers will sound more realistic *and* more exciting.
