You don't necessary need a subwoofer, a lot of it has to do with your room and the type of music you listen to

I originally thought I need a sub too with LS50 but in the end, I rarely turns on my Martin Logan Depth as the LS50 has enough bass for me for the type of music I listen to after room gain..

As far as Sierra-2, it was on my list too but I could not find a pair of Sierra-2 to listen to and I can't stomach spending close to $100 for 2 way shipping just so I can demo the speakers, however, I don't think they are better than LS50, if anything, from my research, I think Sierra-2 and LS50 are in the same league, both price and performance wise and it will depend on your personal preference to the sound and the look
I have not listened to them yet, I am going to take a look at them on Saturday. I don't listen to music with too much bass either but I guess it's nice to have that option.

LS50s need a sub. They sound like a poor man's Blade II when used with a high quality sub. I will be adding a Velodyne DD10 plus to mine.

I looked through your thread and you have a very nice setup. Are you running them without a sub right now?

Thanks. Yes, no sub since I purchased them a couple years back. I listen to pretty much everything and some music would definitely benefit from having a sub with these, no doubt.
