While into HT, I'm more into good sounding home audio (styx, rush dvds) and rock, jazz and classical music. My room is 13 wide x 40 deep. I was also considering the svs 20-35pci used or a new svs 20-39pc+, and a used HSU vtf-3, but I can get a PAIR of the ravas for $700. My speakers are the ported Devore Fidelity Gibbon 8 and the Unico integrated tube/SS hybrid amp by Unison Research in Italy....i also have a sony 999es cd/sacd/dvd player. I was also considering a used REL storm III. You know how it is: when you see lower prices you think lower quality, but the few reviews I have read on the RAVAs is quite remarkable. Let me know, rava owners, your thoughts, esp if you've had/compared other high end name brands.
