I think the point is, a couple times EVERY day, someone comes on here and says "I want a a full 5.1 speaker system and I have (500, 1000, 1,500, 2,000) dollars to spend, who can recommend a speaker or speaker system"!
If we had a couple threads titled "best 5.1 speaker system under 1,000", etc and people can post their opinions in that thread, then a newbie, like I was 3 years ago, can go to that thread and look at people's opinions and recommendations! And of course people push the brands they own or have owned, that is the only brand they know well! I will recommend EMP or Def Tech SM speakers for certain budgets, becuase I can say with certainty that those speakers sound good for the money! I have also owned Bose, Polk M and Pioneer AJ speakers, but don't recommend those as I was less pleased with their performance.
And even an AV enthusiast with a mediocre knowledge of speakers, like myself, can use the threads when we are considering an upgrade. My next purchase might benefit form a "Best speaker system for 3000 or less" thread!
