Presently using take classic, but will install ascend acoustic htm200se this wknd. Yeah I would go with the takes again, they're a bargain imo. The ascends sound better
Takes sound pretty darn good considering how much they cost. The Ascends are in another league
Mine are @ 7' high, wall mounted, 8' diagonal (behind and to the side) of listening position.
They were matched to the take classic htib system, but are now just buying time until I have time to install the ascends.
