Ok some hopefully simple questions for those who've compared the two.
Which would you recommend for purely 2 channel music? Not really classical...some 3 Tenors and such but mostly bluegrass, folk, easy listening with a bit of rock (70s-90s) thrown in. Think a spread of Nancy Griffith to Greenday with a bit of Blues Highway thrown in and that's what we'd be using these for.
Additional question...What stands are best used for the Sierras? Maybe I read it wrong but I could only find the 340 stands...and I'd rather have 24" than 30" due to some room issues.
Final question, since I have space limitations if I ever did want to use these as part of my HT 5.1 system...what would be a functional center channel that would fit in a 17" wide, 8" high space? The Sierra has this covered by just using a 3rd S-1 as the center...but the Swans appear to be more problematic...anyone know of a well matched SMALLER center for the Swans that would compare to the Sierra in that space?
