I wouldn't worry to much about "old technology", lol.
I have a pair of Vandersteen 3A speakers which are 20 years old, and I recently tried to find some speakers that sounded as good for a second home (no space for 16-inch wide speakers in my new home), with very limited success.
After listening to many many speakers, and doing research like crazy, I FINALLY found the speaker that sounds the best (for under $5000).
I have them now and absolutely love them.
They are the Gallo Acoustics CL-3 speakers, and they are incredibly good-sounding; very close to equaling the sound quality of my Vandersteens.
The amazing thing is that they are half the size and half the price of my Vandersteens, and put out as much sound. It is very hard to believe, and it is absolutely true. I was prepared to pay up to $5000 or so, and these only cost $1600 !!!
You can call Gallo and get a pair of these for a 60-day FREE home trial, and once you do I very much doubt whether they will need to pay the return shipping...lol. You can listen to them while you wait.
I suggest that you read the article on them from The Absolute Sound. They have some unique design features that make them ideal for me, and you may also be interested.
There is also an article on a 5.1 Gallo system you can read at avguide.com
