I'm curious if anyone has compared these two speakers or has experience with them so that I could decide which to go with. I have the Sierra-1's at home right now, and am probably going to try the MTS-01's in the next few weeks. I know the Sierra is a bookshelf, and the SVS is a tower, so a comparison may not be fair, but I'm curious what may work best for me. I am looking for something in a 5.1 home theater system, that can be used for listening to music in 2 channel, or movies in 5.1. I was originall intending to mount the Sierra's on the wall, but just realized that won't work for me. So if I get the stand, they will take up as much floorspace as a tower speaker, so I might as well try out the MTS-01, since that's roughly the same footprint on the ground. I still need to buy a subwoofer. This is all going to run on a Pioneer Elite SC-27. Thank you.
