I bought a JBL Synthesis® Array Two Plus (yeah, who names these systems?) with the SAM1HF and SAM2LF modules, and I have to say, it seriously outperforms anything else I auditioned in the same market segment. In CA it's a $60k+ system including our blessed sales tax, but I paid less than full retail. Even so, it's a serious investment.
I spent more money reconfiguring the HT, plus room treatments, and JBL sent out the calibration expert who took the time to really dial in the system. It's absolutely worth every penny.
While personal preferences (and prejudices) vary, I cannot imagine anyone calling this system anything other than superb.
The Professional Home Cinema (PHC) gear was impressive, too, but decidedly less satisfying and IMO not the equal of either the Triad Platinum system or the JBL Synthesis®. Klipsch THX system in this segment? Not really a comparable product. No thanks.
What I can afford, when I can afford it...
