well it can be fun at least...

Have you ever been to the speaker threads? Those people can be brutal sometimes.

Just for fun, sometimes I think about starting a thread about Bose speakers and then sitting back while the "stuff" flys.

My wife has the same sentiment seems the more time I spend there there's a direct correlation to how much money I end up spending, but seriously it can be helpful, of course there are few that spoil it for everyone else.

Well, for me, it's also kinda not worth the effort there, because I'm just not that into audio. I did prowl the forums there once when shopping for a subwoofer, and it does offer some info that may lean you one way or the other...but I just don't want to get bogged down into which speakers sound absolutely crystal clear at 3.54Ghz, etc etc.

I'd just like something that gives good sound without killing my wallet to get it. Ahh, the eternal dream.... I'm sure there's some mid-range quality speaker series out there with my name on it. Heck, we've been using the Panasonic speakers from a home-theater-in-a-box my wife won at work from over 5 years ago, and they still work just great (in fact, its nonpowered subwoofer was amazing)...but we're tired of speakers sticking off the wall and want something more subtle.

yea my lex lets me do that too... I always have it start at -35 , but I never did the Max part...

oh, you are just no fun...:tounge
as a general rule for speakers, bigger & uglier = better sound, Smaller nicer looking = worse sound... something goofy to do with physics and such...;-)
fwiw, at the moment I really like rythmik servo subs they are just amazing...
and for speakers I would look at Paradigm... back when I was looking for speakers they had a very good sound/value ratio... but that was a long time ago, things may have changed... oh and they are Canadian, eh? in the end I ended up with some older AR floor standers, they sound great, but it kind of looks like Stonehenge... just with speakers instead of stones...

As 2c worth from somebody else that is not all that into HiFi/HT stuff, I think of speakers like wine.

If you like it then it's a good wine, regardless of what the "critics" say.

So if the speakers sound ok to you, then who cares if the actual specs are not perfect.

However this advice comes from someone who watches TV in mono :-)

Heh..well, I completely agree with that sentiment...however...I do basically all of my shopping online, which makes listening to the speakers a little difficult until they're already mine. Wink So, I have to basically rely on specs, official reviews, and *shudder* the user-reviews on forums like avs.

From someone who has Penfolds Grange basically made in their backyard your taste in speaker should be pretty good! :-D

I'll third Paradigm. I have Monitor 7s for front's, CC370 Center, 370 surrounds, and titans for rears in a 7.1 setup. You can't beat them for value and great sound.
