I just ordered the TC2 from the speaker company, but it appears I missed the train on the tst2 or tst3. What are a good pair of ground speakers in my price range. Tsc still have stock of the tst1, but I'm wondering since I have another couple of hundred dollars to spend if I should maybe look at entry level klipsch or polk that will cost 400 to 500. What do you think of tst1 vs polk monitor 70 or klipsch f2.

I just ordered some PSB T45s for $500. Very well reviewed.

Call tSc ASAP and see if they have any left in stock.

The PSB is a good one. Another one is the Infinity P362 at frys at half price.

These measured really well at the NRC on soundstage. They should be really good.

Also look at the Primus 362. More info on the Primus Owner's thread (do a search).

Will all these speakers go good with the tc2 center channel I got from tsc?

I'm a newb when it comes to audio. I'm inheriting a pioneer vsx 818 from my dad and plan on setting up a 3.1 setup for my apartment.

Rule of thumb is you get all your front 3 speakers same make and model.

Your best bet will be to return the tc2 and get a matching center from whatever you end up with.

If you are going to order Infinity from Frys. I think you need to order it individually and not get 2 in one order. I believe their shipping is kinda messed up if you order 2 of them at one single purchase.

Yeah, I was looking on the site and they only had 1 left, and so I asked her to order them for me, and the regretted it after calling TSC and them saying they aren't going to ever get any more TST2 or TST3s in stock. I had to call her to cancel it.
