Thanks for the input guys, I appreciate the insight. I did however go with the Klipsch 2.1.
I was in London Drugs eyeing it & was approached by the salesman and talked him into knocking $50 off the existing sale price, (saving about $90 in total!).
I must say that I'm beyond satisfied with this system as it's on par with the Bose I've been used to hearing. Thanks again.
