I've had the Image T5s for a few weeks already and I'm amazed by their sound. The Images are very detailed and neutral with just the right amount of bass. I was worried how they would pair with the...

The Image B5 would be a good upgrade. I just don't like the NAD 3020 much. It does have high quality sound and is somewhat punchy at higher volumes but the NAD 7050 sounds much fuller and would have...

Try to avoid tower speakers with the NR636. Bookshelf speakers would probably be a better match for it. If you want a smaller speaker set then the Energy take 5.1 is a good deal.

I recommend a more stealthy approach. Something like this: http://www.klipsch.com/AWR-650-SM

What about the influence of any graphic equalizers or tone controls on the two amps? That can make the sound significantly different when comparing the two speakers.

With or without an enclosure the speaker will be noticable next door at higher volumes because of the fact that it's right on the wall. Insulating it then putting sound dampening around it will help....

It's going to be noticable if you install in-walls, especially with lower frequencies. That would be the case even if there was a brick or concrete divide, although not as bad. I would go with some...

The Synchrony is a reference class speaker so you won't find a better sounding speaker of the same size and price. A decent separate amp will make it shine. You're lucky to find it. I haven't seen...
