I have done some research on different speakers and have also read quite a few threads from this forum and the avsforum. I currently have NO home theatre equipment and want to start building my A/V setup and then get a Front Projector (which I have also done a LOT of research on, probably going to get the new Sanyo PLV-70HT / SE20HD after the price drops in about a year). I plan on buying the Yamaha RX-V1300 A/V Receiver since it has 6.1 and Component Video I/O's, 110Wx6 for around $600 For speakers, I have come to a decision between JBL S-series and Axiom. Here are my possible setups: Setup #1: JBL S-series (1) S-CenterII (4) S26II Bookshelfs Setup #2: JBL S-series (1) S-CenterII (2) S26II Bookshelfs (2) S310II Towers Setup #3: Axiom (1) VP Zero Center (4) M2ti Bookshelfs Setup #4: Axiom (1) VP Zero Center (2) M2t1 Bookshelfs (2) M22ti Towers From prices on the web, setups 1 and 3 & setups 2 and 4 are very close to the same price. My question is: Axiom vs. JBL S-series and also (4) bookshelfs OR (2) bookshels with (2) towers Any comments and help in this decision is greatly appreciated.
