I am looking for a pair of bookshelf speakers to go in my bedroom. While waiting for mounting brackets to arrive, I put my Polk R150s (which I use for my rears in my LR 7.1 system and cost $55/pair) in there and they sounded pretty good. In fact, I have a 3.1 old school pioneer receiver and I tried a sound test with just the pair and a sub and then the pair with a center channel..and the result was I sent the center back becasue it sounded way better with just the two R150s. Now I am looking to get some permanently in there and was thinking it would be a good chance to demo the av123's speakers which I hear so much about (or maybe some pardigms, axioms, aperion, etc). So here the first question:
Which one of these would be better?:
x-ls Bookshelf Loudspeaker or Onix Reference 0.5 Monitor Loudspeaker
Money is not the concern, which one is better?
I would assume the reference is, but the x-ls is bigger and has beter specs???
Also, if you have any suggestions, I'm all ears!! Such as PAradigms, aperion, etc!!!!
Let me know...I will also be putting these up against my Polk R50's which I got for $183 shipped. So, if they do not sound better than these...they are going straight back, Im posting it here and buying more floorstanding Polks for less!!!
