Yes you can definitely use your current speakers as surrounds, it's only important for the front three to match.

Many people on here have use A4L and had no issues. It still comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, and just make sure to keep everything plugged into a decent power strip.

Those have been on there, the S-8, S-10, and S-12. They are just existing RBH subs from what I can tell, I don't see the new Impression sub yet. It also will be designed to match the Impression...

Can you order a pair of each and have a listen? SVS pays shipping both ways, and NHT pays shipping one way, so you would be out $20-30 to ship back the NHTs if you didn't like them.

Well according to Brian, they should be releasing their new sub today. Hopefully they are still on schedule, but that was the case 2 weeks ago. Hoping it's something that competes in that $500-600...

I think a sub is the easiest way to take care of the low end. No tower is going to a provide comparable bass, at least anywhere near this budget.

This is what I would recommend as well. You can even get a new pair of KEF R300 for the same price as the KEF Q900 pair, and these would be a fantastic choice. The R series is very impressive.

The Energy RC-10 are $230/pair at Frys.com with free shipping. However, I would not consider these "lively", likewise with the Wharfedale.

-80 to +18 is a relative volume scale, in this case 0 is reference. 0 to 99 is an absolute volume scale where 75 is reference. It's the same thing, just different ways to display it.

I agree. With high efficiency speakers, you don't need an external amp, take $500 from your receiver budget and put it towards speakers.
