Cheap? Who said cheap? Inexpensive doesn't mean they are somehow inferior. On the contrary, there are plenty of really great bookshelf speakers for not much money. And if you decide to go D.I.Y.,...

Congratulations on your X2000. I just ordered one for audition (I'm sending the Marantz I was auditioning back tomorrow).

As far as the EMP Tek E5Bi speakers, I also have those in my home and am...

Funny you should make that list. I'm auditioning the E5Bi's right now (I have a few others to audition). I'll be shipping back the Marantz AVR I purchased and have the Denon X2000 on order (from...

Yeah, I'm pretty late in responding.

Very true, cel, especially for artists that aren't well established. That being said, much of it is a collaborative effort, while sometimes it's totally...

It's whatever you prefer in the sound you are receiving. I found placing the ribbon tweeter on the outside worked better for the sound I wanted. Others prefer the ribbon tweeter on the inside. My...

Why is this not the right thread? I'm looking at Denon, that's why I came here. And if you actually read my post, I said I research specs via the owner's manual and not what is published in an ad. ...

I use to recommend Zvox for the simple solution. I own one of their earlier models and was quite surprised. They were MDF cabinets and not plastic, and they had decent drivers and a large internal...

Let's see, you are willing to spend $500 or so on a Bose system with a bass module, or just $200 on the Zvox. Not really a fair comparison. Go up to the Zvox 580 with Dual 6.5" woofers, 5 main...

^^ Call up SVS. Tell them what you have and how it is presently hooked up. They will give you detail information on how to get that sub integrated properly.

You don't think small or cheap ;). I like that. And the Rythmik is a terrific choice and will most likely destroy your room :eek:.

Between the great room, kitchen and breakfast area, you are looking at over 3,000 cu. ft. (with 8-foot high ceilings). Your sub will see that entire volume. While it puts you in the large room...

The Energy sub is more of a bass module than it is a subwoofer. It has an 8-inch driver with a 60 watt RMS amp (240 watts peak). It is probably a very nice unit to have in a small den or bedroom. ...
