I always liked the sound of them. I am guessing the margins are higher on the ST line.

Well I replaced my 4, SR8080BPs with PM800s and like the pinpoint sound better in the 800s. Anybody know whats a fair price to list SR8080s for?

I still have my 2006s. The amps still work, but they have to be close to 10 years old so I don't know what to expect. I think expecting any electronic device to last forever is unrealistic. ...

Not quite, cubic volume is 876 vs 1998. Size really does matter. :-) Different drivers too. Not knocking the 10s, but they are not the 65s. I owned the 8s and wall mounted speakers are just not...

I was going to do a 92" screen with a couch 11' back before I changed rooms. I taped it off vs the 50" TV. Looked great. However, now I have a 120" in a different room and wish I would have went...
