I think I'll take the Energy Classic. All reviews so far put them ahead of the Soundware.
Plus, the ETC come with a sub and not a horrible one.
Though a 7.1 setup does interest me. That makes the Soundware semi attractive.
Another 100$...BAM! 7.1 setup.
Course, let us do some math ere'.
So, 150$ less than the ET Classic at this point, AND it comes with mounts, so no need to buy those, so, take out 40$ more.
That gives me say, 190$ to spend on a sub.
Got one of these for my living room setup; Velodyne comes recommended as the best in the Subwoofer business.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...F8&me=&seller=
That's 30$ less, overall, than the Energy Take Classic.
So it'd only be 70$ more, than my current idea of ETC 5.1 + 1712, to get a 7.1 system + 1712.
It's very tempting, but I can't shake the feeling...those Soundware just seem so weak!
