I like the guy's sense of humor, but unfortunately this review isn't one of his better ones. To put it into context you probably need to watch the ones he did for the JBL 530 and 350's and maybe even...

While it will be a little while yet before I can actually hear the Sierra 2's in my own room, I think I can safely say that you would be much better off going with three CMT 340 for your L/C/R than...

That's good to hear.

Glad I got my order in already ;) Looking forward to finally hearing what all the hub bub has been about these last few years.

Dave,
thanks for the reply.
Imaging was probably the wrong word to use. Maybe projecting would be better. I just want to make sure the illusion of sound emanating from the screen above the center...

Probably going to be a good while yet. Weird. Might as well just try the JBLs and if they work for you, keep them and don't look back.

I too was looking forward to your thoughts between the two,...

I guess I muddled the point I was trying to make.
I should have said " I can't do a phantom center even if I wanted to- which I don't". I don't expect the phantom center to image better, especially...

That's definitely a possibility- and the most economical solution. Although it kind of frustrates the whole impetus of the upgrade which was specifically to get a premium, robust center. Dina didn't...

I expect the piano finish would be too reflective. I'll probably end up going with Dark Cherry. Now I'm just wondering if it wouldn't be better to go all 3 Sierra 2's in front. I have my center CBM...

Don't know if I'm happy to see the discount correctly kick in now or not, as it means I'm likely to be spending a lot more money a lot sooner than I anticipated :eek:

The 'New Years' sale just ended within the last week, possibly even a day or two ago. The Sierra 1's are about $100 more today than they were last week- that seems to be where the free shipping is...

I know my math skills aren't the greatest, but shouldn't $290 off bring the price of the B stock Sierras down to $1158 not $1274?

If the price is actually $1158 (+s/h), I would be seriously...

I didn't think there was a RAAL option with the Sierra 1's. I could have sworn when I asked earlier I was told that introducing the RAALs just made them Sierra 2's. In which case it would become...

the NrTs seem to be stock with the Horizon. which hit 27kHz.

How poorly would a horizon center mate with 170's for L/R and 200s for the rear? I assume that the RAAL tweeter would be even worse in that regard compared to the NrT?

After 14 years, I'm still...

Yeah I'm curious about this too. It can't be the aesthetics cause he's still looking for studio monitors- so it must be something about the performance the OP finds lacking?
