That is one heck of a vinyl collection. Is that a record cleaning machine I see on the top surface of your record case? With that many albums, I think it would be.

Inquired? Go to that audio store and audition those speakers, as well as any other speakers they may have set up. No one knows what sound signature you will prefer. Only you can determine that. ...

The OP has decided to go with the B&W, which makes a lot of sense for both music and HT. He loved the sound of several conventional speakers, and that made the most sense for him. Panels are a bear...

I haven’t heard the ELAC sub, so I cannot say if they are worth the money. From their specifications, they seem to want to hide their frequency response just like most budget sub manufacturers do by...

I keep forgetting about Outlaw’s 8-inch sub. Thanks for noting it (and duals will provide good output and help smooth out room modes). The main reason I suggested the SVS was because it’s a...

Welcome to AVS. For an inexpensive 8-inch sub, that Pioneer sure received a spectacular writeup on HomeTheaterReview. However, it won’t have a lot of extension past 40 Hz, and there is where I...

Larger panels will enhance articulation and expand the soundstage. Since you have a subwoofer (or two) on your agenda, I wouldn’t worry too much about how deep the bass response is on any particular...

^ PSB, a Canadian based company if memory serves, makes some very fine speakers. But like any speaker, it's up to the individual listening to them whether or not they love them.

You have a nice list of speakers. Of those speakers listed, I’ve only auditioned the JBL 530’s and heard the pre-production model of the ELAC B5 at an audio show. SVS has a clear advantage in that...

Sounds to me that you are becoming a “panel” guy :). The Theos has the same panel size as the more expensive Ethos (which I auditioned). The Montis has almost 95 sq. inches of extra panel space...

I agree with eljay, go for the Hsu. Since your room volume is reaching the extreme level, you might think about a second VTF-3 Mk5 down the road. Either that or think about going DIY.
