OK, purchased first two parts of HT this week. HK AVR630 and SVS 20-39PCi(being delivered today!!!) Now I am stuck on speakers, I have no where to listen to any of these and really could do home trial, but then run into shipping charges if I do not like them. I need some suggestions for this budget. If you have seen my other post, my room is very big. I will use 95% HT...... Narrowed down to: Ascends 340 across front with 170 rears Found them for about $1100.00 US shipped Diva Swans 5.2 C3 and R3 rears $1500.00 US plus shipping AxiomsM60 VP150 QS8 total of about $1600.00 What do you think, I know there are several post on this site and others and I have been researching for a while now. I think my best bet would be the Axioms or the Ascends but the Swans look nice too.....Sound comparison VS. price I would go with the Ascends, but I am already about 1500 over original budget, what is another 500?? LOL My wife will love this bill!!
