Well, okay, limited data smooth off-axis, not 60 degrees or anything. biggrin.gif

THX set a standard and that standard has not changed. Just see what THX spec the item has and you're good to go. Some of those PC speakers just might hit THX specs in a small office that is 8x8 or something. Go to your local theater and then go to a THX certified theater and then come tell us THX is just a "logo".

Hopefully not too seriously since it's just a hobby.

In Bill's defense: He did specifically pick on the consumer THX spec, not the pro spec.

If the OP is still looking for towers, I own a set of Focal Chorus 826Vs and can heartily recommend them for music.

Music Direct has the 826V is ebony vinyl for $1619 per pair shipped.

MD has now lowered the price on the 836V in gloss black for $1999.

Between these two I'd probably opt for the gloss black 836V.

1: Sony DVP-S7000 | Denon DVD-2900 | Laptop > Emotiva XDA-2 > Emotiva Control Freak > Crown XLS2000 > Focal 826V | Def Tech BP2000
2: Computer > Parasound Zdac > Emotiva Control Freak > Crown XLS1500 > Focal 706V | Def Tech SM450 | 2 Velodyne Subs
