I haven't auditioned any on that list, but I've been looking closely at EMP Tek for one of the rooms in my house.
My only suggestion is you might be better off buying a sub from one of the well-known subwoofer I.D. companies (Hsu, PSA, Reaction Audio, Rythmik Audio, SVS).
Best of luck on your search.
I believe he reviewed one of their sub or it was a speaker from the lower series I cant remember.
Yes forgot to mention about the sub, most likely would be a SVS,HSU or maybe that XTZ 1x12 sub
But any suggestion for a 1st time buyer
Would it be better to save and get a higher level of sound if you can actually tell the difference or just get one of the less expensive options

Maybe that a reason I am intrigued by them as they are coming to the USA now and the good reviews.
But before I found them I was set on buying a complete system from one of the other I listed.
I read that the cinema series is more towards movies but still wondering if I would really appreciate the cinema over those other options
As I dont plan on buying any more speaker just a set to setup a good room for movies.
I know most people buy a lower grade set and later upgrade but I think is easier to get a good set and forget about upgrades as far as speaker itself.
