I'm kind of a newbie to the land of higher end audio. I'm looking at the Aperion speakers and I'm hoping I can get a couple questions answered about the two systems I'm looking. Been reading this thread and hearing lots of good things.
Basically I will be picking up a pioneer kuro 5080 tv. I'll mainly be using the room for movies/games (music too but looking for the sound quality for movies first). I have to get the exact measurements for the room, but a solid estimate is 14'x22'x9' height (plus or minus 2 ft).
I'm looking at mainly 2 systems. The Intimus 532 Cinema XD series (2 532 L/r, 533 VAC, 2 534-SS dipole surround, s-12 sub) and also the Intimus 533 Cinema HD (2 533-T, 533 VAC, 2 532 L/R surround, s-10 sub).
How much of a sound quality difference is there between the two setups? Do the towers make a much bigger difference compared to those bookshelves? Also, if going towers, should I consider going up the the 533-pt's? I'll lose the sub in that set up but from what I've read it sounds like it won't make that much of a difference. One last Q, is there a sound quality difference between the 533-T and the 533-PT other than the sub?
I know this is long but I'd really appreciate the help. Pretty much the 533-pt series is the most I'd want to pay (so basically 2 grand). Thanks.
