Hello everyone, I could really use some help with this question. I have been scouring the Internet for days, looking for ANYTHING that compares these two solutions. From what I can find, nothing does. Dozens of separate reviews claim each is excellent for various reasons, and I am at a loss as to which one to get.
I don't have a "living room" per say, and all of my everything is located at a central desk in my room (a converted 2-car garage). Whatever audio system I get will be connecting to my PC, Xbox 360, and PS3; as well as my electronic piano occasionally as well, most likely. I listen to music, watch movies, and play video games. I also record music occasionally. Whatever I buy I am going to get immediately; probably tonight, if I can figure this out.
My number one priority is audio quality and sound-staging. I want professional, high-fidelity sound. Their relative sizes, connection options, and cost are not a concern. Both are said to have excellent levels of both, and I am unsure as to whether this "home theatre 2:1" system or "2 bookshelf monitors" would be better for me overall. I really just need ANYTHING at this point to help point me in a direction as to which one would better suit my needs. The only thing that I have to go on right now is ONE review that said that the A2's MIGHT benefit a little bit from an independent subwoofer and that they can be a tiny bit bass-heavy on occasion; whereas the subwoofer in the Millenia CT is good but doesn't quite live up to the standard of its satellites - and that's it. Any advice or input that anyone has would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
