FWIW...the CBM-170SE and the M22 are comparable to each other despite the difference in price and drivers. The M3 isn't even in the ballpark IMO.

Has anyone compared the CMT-340se against the EMP Tek E55Ti? Choosing speakers is tough! There are too many choices and I am not too fond of having to audition several and deal with the returning and paying the return shipping of the ones I don't want. One day I think I have finally made up my mind and the next day I am thinking something completely different!

Ascend cmt-340

I set up 7.2 all Ascend CMT-340 surround speakers about 7 years ago, it still sound fantastic.

I upgraded my AV Receiver to Denon AVR 4520CI just few months ago.
This Denon is capable to drive full 11.2 speakers surround system.
I am thinking to upgrade the 7.2 system to 9.2 system.
Due to space limitation, I cannot do the full 11.2 with add on center wide speakers (front left and right wide).
I can only add HIGH front speakers (left and right).

Question:
How good is the 9.2 system compare to my current 7.2 system? I mostly watching movies in my HT Room.
Is it worth the investment for extra front HIGHT front speakers (2 units of Ascend CMT-340).

Any comments are most appreciated. Thanks.

Dolby Atmos gear just started coming out. You might want to think about that
