This from a friend of mine on another forum
"Well, you'd be surpised how much matching rears can contribute to your listening experience. See, I'm running a full Dynaudio Contour front right now, but my rears are still Klipsch in the waiting of being swapped. A couple weeks ago, a friend of mine lent me a pair of Dynaudio Focus 140 bookshelf speakers, which he had bought second-hand to use as his own rears. I laid them on my Klipsch, so that they stood right over my head, 45° behind me and... HOLY CR*P! Seriously, I could not believe my ears, as in multichannel everything had changed and improved dramatically. The matching timber was a bliss, and they sounded so much better than my Klipsch overall.
So my point is: good surrounds can contribute to your system just as much as anything else. Though satisfying my subwoofer needs would still come first in my personal to-do list. "
