I am about to get a speaker package and I have a couple of questions. I am in Canada so I am quite limited in terms of what I can get at an affordable price.
1) Right now it seems like I could get the Energy RC-Micro 5.1 set for a little more than $300. I am inclined to do so based on reviews (listening to compare these systems would be impossible).
The Take Classics would run me close to $500. I originally wanted these, but based on the price difference, I am now not so sure. They seem like a sure bet, but more often than not, people say the micros are just as good.
I could also get the Polk Blackstone TL150 (no subwoofer) for $250. The T2s are likely too expensive for me.
This set-up would be for a very small living room (12 x 15 feet), that opens onto a small dining room on one side. On the other side of the wall where my Media setup would be is my toddler's room. So, I would normally be watching/listening at low volumes.
I would want something for 50% music, and 50% movies (where I favour dialogue clarity over anything else).
Something else to know is that we have a family with very young children living directly below our apartment. Sound passes through very easily. So I am not interested in a large subwoofer.
Thanks for your help,
