Thanks for the suggestions so far. Yes this is just for a simple stereo setup. I like the simplicity of just two speakers with great sound, nothing elaborate.
The Sierra-1 really does seem like the best option I can find so far though, although I'll try to find more comparisons/reviews of various speakers.
smasher50: Do you know how the NHT Classic Three compares to the Sierra-1? The reviews don't seem as "rave impressed" as the Sierra-1, although that doesn't mean much unless I can find a direct comparison. Hmm. Any way I can audition these near the SF bay?
jcm2128: Doesn't adding the NRT require different crossover circuitry as well? How much cost/effort would the upgrade later come to, in total?
Edit: Thanks cel4145, that's exactly the kind of suggestions I was looking for! I love the look and compactness of that mini-X a-100, although it seems 50w/channel versus the HK 120w/channel. How would you say the sound quality of the mini compares to the HK? (I'll start looking up reviews now)
Regarding Amps: I suppose I'll start researching these, although suggestions are also welcome here for a bare minimum cost amp that would power something like Sierra-1's with good quality. I only need 2 channels because I'll just have the 2 speakers, and I do not plan on ever getting a sub or adding more speakers. Note that I really don't listen to music very loud, and these are going to be very close to my listening position in a fairly small room. I'm more interested in quality than power, for a reasonable price.
