I haven't listened to the Veritas line in a HT setup though, but I'd be surprised if they were anything less than very good.
Id really love the hear the Veritas' with some good Krell equipment.
My current set-up is the 2.3i's, 2.0Ci center, Sonance TR-4000 in-ceiling surrounds (only place for rears in my home and I plan to upgrade with Energy in-ceilings), SVS20-39PCi sub (also looking for something a bit more musical, great sub for HT), Outlaw model-755 amp and 950 pre-processor (looking at the 990), and Sony DVP NS999ES multi-format for source (waiting for HDDVD, hope I can hold out).
The Veritas' forte are music for sure, but they are just as good for HT. One of the reasons I like them so well is their capability to excel at both. BTW, before my center came in I spent allot of time watching movies and concerts utilizing only the two speakers and they were superb. A case could be made for using just the two for sure.
Actually, I really never thought Id convert to multichannel for music, but properly mixed SACD's sound awesome. I'm going in that direction slowly, but surely; kicking and screaming.
I, like you, don't use my sub for music unless necessary. Hard to beat the bass quality of the Veritas and I hate to interfere.
Better stop, many have already read enough of my ravings about the Veritas' so I'll let some others sing their praise. I already know what a gem the are.
