Front Bookshelf questions; Aperion DefTec, EMP Tek
I've been racking my brain over which front speakers to get. I'm looking for a neutral sounding speaker that will be used 90%+ for HT in a room that is 9'9" x 19' (theater area) but it's a fat L shaped room that's 13'7" in the back half. I'm looking to get a Denon X2000 receiver and have narrowed it down to a PA 150 sub.
I though I had settled on the Aperion versus grand bookshelf and center a while back, but the more I read the more I'm unsure. First it seems like you get a better sound using a bookshelf for a center instead of a "center" speaker which is also less expensive. Also the DefTec SM 55 are a little less expensive with glowing reviews, and the EMP Tek E5Bi are the least expensive and have pretty good reviews, and I'm wondering if the versus grand's justify the price?
I realize all three speaker groups are top bang for your buck speakers, but I'd rather buy once/cry once than play the upgrade game forever.
