That was a good suggestion, it seems, but it also sounds like finding a Luito is not really easy at all :/ . I was told by someone that a BW center may pair well?

I may not have the chance to demo everything I like, sadly, so it's at least good to get a relative bead on things.

For instance, since it seems like it's widely accepted that the center channel...

But if I can get reputation, presentation, AND performance all in one package, why not?

I actually am eyeing the Sonus Veneers but I had a couple Q's for actual owners?

As I made clear already, listening to all these (any of these, really) will not likely be doable, I just dont have places like that around here with those products available I don't think.

I had an old JBL northridge 5.1 setup (pretty decent for the price, hefty sized satelites with a center channel, I think the sub was seperate but that didn't hold up).

Anyway, I already replaced...

I have a Sony STR/DG-1000 - contemplating a STR1050/Denon X3100/4100 / Pioneer - ??

Even though it was a sweet buy back when I got it (I could even see ES labeled components through the top!), I never figured the two HDMI ports would last, so, sooner than I guess I thought, I...
