    Hi gang.

    I am in a bit of a pickle here, so if you could just hear me out and help me out... I would much appreciate it.

    As my signature says, I am a gracious owner of my Polk LSi7 (2 pairs)... however, its that time of the hobby again: UPGRADE TIME.

    So, here's what I'm faced with:
    (Keep in mind if I sell all my LSi7 on ebay, I can get about 850$ for them.)

    1. I could buy 2 pairs of LSi9 for a net output of 350$ (1200-850).
    2. I could buy 1 pair of Onix Reference 1 and an SP3 tube amplifier for a net output of $450 (1300-850).
    3. I could wait four months and buy the Onix Strata Mini for a net output of $750 (1600-850).

    Now, I plan on keeping my subwoofer.... but with options #2 and #3, I dont think I can have a 4.1 system any time soon.... meaning: I'm going to be solely 2.1 for quite some time (boo for movies and gaming on my computer... these are my computer speakers).

    So... as you can see, I am one confused person. Any help is needed.

    Additional pertinent information:
    Receiver : HK330
    Sub: SVS 25-31PC+

    I can let them go for $425 pick up.

    The question above remains.

    How about 1 pair of LSi9s and maybe an LSi center? Seems like it would be a noticable upgrade for musice, solidify the center for movies, keep cost down, and not go overkill on bigger surrounds.
