Just a little update. I listened to the Klipsch RF-62 / RC-62, and decided returned the Klipsch RC-62 centre channel while I could. Meanwhile, the SVS SB12 sub arrived, and is every bit what I was hoping for. It sounds great, and the glossy black finish is perfect. One componenent that will not be changed anytime soon, if ever.
I finally got to drive around and listen to some speakers, but this time I'm shopping for all three front speakers. I had forgotten how much fun this hobby is.
Tried a PSB Image T5 first (it was only model in stock), and I was not super impressed. Next day I tried both the Image T6 and Imagine T. The Imagine was my favorite of the two, but no love at first sight.
Moved to a different store, and I listened to 2 different Paradigm towers ($1000-1500 range, don't remember the exact model) and 2 Monitor Audio towers (silver RX6 and RX8), with their respective centre channels.
Of the two brands, I liked MA a lot better, the Paradigm seemed a little too bright, and not as precise. If it comes to RX6 vs RX8, it's not going to be such an easy choice, but I probably like the RX6 a little better overall.
Today I was going back to listen to some more rx6 vs rx8 to make up my mind, but they happened to have two gx200 with the gx150 centre connected. I made the mistake to start listening while the guy was setting up the rx6.
Holy crap, those gx200 sounded amazing, though they are over twice the budget I had originally in mind. Now I am stuck again...
