As an owner of a Rocket HT (850's, 200, 300's, 750's), I'd really love to hear people's thoughts on how these speakers compare to some of the speakers in a similar price category today. I don't have a chance to hear other setups, but I'd love to know how the Rockets are thought of compared to the Chanes, Ascends, etc today.

Time for an upgrade? Lol.

It brought a smile to my face that after all these years the Onix community is still right on top of things and quick with help. One of the main reasons I bought in the first place. I love the speakers and always planned on getting a home with a dedicated theater-but ended up in a home where the 'theater' is just the family room off the kitchen. Thankfully the room is quite large, but still the Rockets make a statement that designers aren't very fond of.

To keep the house happy I swapped them out for a Take 5 system the past couple of years-but recently I lamented about the rockets and got approval for their return-with the exception of Bigfoot. In DW's defense it was wall mounted above the TV and loomed quite large. The RS205 MKII is what I run for my surrounds and let's face it-they are a bit larger than people picture when considering 'bookshelf speakers'. I will start with a phantom center and claim the sweet spot on the couch for myself. A digital AVR that can do 9.1 or better and I'll be rocking the Pro-Logic in 2017!

Thanks for your thoughts!

Anybody running an atmos system with their rockets? I'm upgrading my TV & receiver and thought about adding some ceiling speakers for atmos. Just curious what a good match would be for the ceiling speakers.
