I currently use a pair of C2's and my Media room is also my main listening room, so I just swap speakers out when I want a different flavor. The 160 are killer on music as I am sure the 260 are as well, but you can't go wrong in either direction.
Thanks for your prompt response Garman
I was only concerned I might not get the fuller sound with bookshelf+sub as compared to the regular towers. I somehow liked towers better even without the sub for music listening purpose. I auditioned them many times and I always feel towers produce so much fuller sound for music.
But I am willing to make compromise and just keep book shelf as I think most of the time I am not leveraging full capacity of towers due to have crossover with my sub in media room.
Does anyone share same opinion here? Please share your thoughts...
