Again, in a direct comparison in my room, the smaller EMP tower, the now discontiued e5Ti, was EVERY BIT as good as the Ascend Acoustic CMT340. I am very careful to say as good and not better, as it...

Joining the party kind of late. I owned the ML Dynamo 300 and it is a brutally awful sub that could NOT make bass in a small closet- boomy noise, but not bass. Haven't heard the 500 or 700, but I...

I have heard them both, in fact, I have heard them both in my room. Not quite, my EMPs are the EMPtek e5ti, so I have one less woofer. Really a toss up.

The AA cmt340 has better bass, but with...

It makes very little sense to buy a 300 dollar receiver and then only budget 200 dollars for 3.1 worth of speaker. 300 dollars will barely get you a decent subwoofer.
