Plus to get a quality designed Monitor center (ie. not a linear MTM), like you're saying, you'd have to step up to the Golds. Just seemed like the Ascend package was the slicker and better integrated choice.
Fwiw...I'm in the GTA.....I know Southern Ontario covers a lot of territory...lol... but if your inclined to audition the Ascend drop me a line or PM. My set up consists of NrT Towers with RAAL equipped STC....I'd say for home theather usage the NrT domes at least to my ears are more dyanamic but you can't beat the clarity or precision of the RAAL for dialouge or music if you go that route.
