I will be upgrading my speakers in the next few months and have been looking for a 6.1 set-up, with bookshelf speakers as mains, that is under $2,000. I have been looking at manufacturers that feature switchable surrounds. I like the flexibility that switchable surrounds would give me for music (30%) and TV/DVD(70%). I am leaning toward the following Cambridge Soundworks system to go with my Yamaha HTR 5490 receiver. M-80 Mains Center Stage (for Front Center) MC300 Center (for Rear Center) S300 Surrounds (Switchable Dipole/Monopole) P500 Sub This set-up rounds out to about $1,850 shipped, using Hi-Fi.com's current promotion. For those of you with switchable surrounds, do you enjoy the flexibility? Would you have rather gone with a speaker that was exclusively monopole or dipole? Since I do watch twice as much TV should I just go with dipole surrounds? When I listen to music, I do use the 6 channel stereo mode on my Yamaha. Would dipole speakers be at a disadvantage in this situation? Thanks, Ralph Moderator, please move to speakers and subwoofers forum. Sorry!
