    Hi Joe,

    Thank you for your service! My dad was a Navy vet serving on USS Charles Badger DD-657, and my younger brother a submariner for 18-1/2 years handling gyroscopes on various boats.

    I love my setup! I considered the LS50 but at the time it was still not widely known how well they'd do as home theater speakers. The jury is in on that...they work fantastic! In my case the worry about cats knocking LS50's off stands and a lack of height to squeeze in a matching LS50 for a center speaker helped me go with the choice I made.

    Either would be good, though the R500/R200c would really be too big for that small a space. You won't always have that restriction, so either would transfer to a larger room well. The LS50 is more detailed in the mid to high frequency ranges, but I don't feel I'm missing out at all. Being able to switch to full range on the R500 for 2-channel stereo for some music is nice, subwoofer off. The LS50 doesn't do that as well.

    Good luck!

    Ken M.

    Hello,


    I have a question for you. I've been looking at different Home Theater setups and I'm looking at the LS50's. The main purpose will be movies but I do want something that sounds great with music too. I noticed in your signature you have the R500 and R200c. How do you like this setup? I'm considering that as well. I'm in the navy and cant test anything at sea. lol.


    My room is a small room. 10x12 feet.


    Anyway, Thank you for your time and any info would be greatly appreciated!


    Joe
