I've started some threads recently looking for speakers that offer great sound for a great value. I think I have narrowed my choices thanks to your help. The speaker companies that are in the running for my next HT upgrade are Axiom, Diva, Monitor, and Polk. Now here is my plan: upgrade my current setup slowly. My first move will be to buy the bookshelves of whatever speaker company I decide on and replace my mains. Depending on how tight money is, I will also buy the matching center channel. Then, when I have enough I will buy the towers and move the bookshelf speakers to the back for surrounds. Right now I have some old Eosone speakers, so pretty much anything I choose is going to be better than those. Here are the potential setups I am thinking about: Diva Setup Diva 2.1 ($400) Diva C3 ($500) Diva 4.1 ($700)OR Diva 6.1 ($1300) Axiom Setup M22ti ($400) OR M3ti ($275) VP150 ($350) M60ti ($800) OR M80ti ($1100) Polk Setup LSi 7 ($479) LSi C ($349) LSi 15 ($1049) [/b]Monitor Setup[/b] Silver 3i ($460) Silver Center 10i ($430) Silver 5i ($790) OR Silver 8i ($1149) What I'd like is your opinions on these models. I've read some threads on the new Polk line and the Divas, but not that much about the Axiom and the Monitors. I'm not really looking for conjectures about how they would stack up against each other, but what their strengths and weaknesses are. If you have demoed two or more against each other, though, I would love to hear how they compared. The speakers will be used in a bedroom HT setup. My room is 10'X 11' with a couch in it, so it's pretty small. I will be using an Onkyo 595 for the time being. I'm not sure if that takes Polk out of the running because they are 4 ohm speakers and I dont know if or how well they will work with my receiver. I want to upgrade the speakers and then upgrade everything else. They will be used for movies, Dolby Prologic II music, 5 channel SACD, and 2 channel SACD. Any comments or even flames are appreciated.
