DirecTV sound sucks (I have DirecTV). Very compressed. Judge a speaker by using a good quality source (CD's, DVD's and/or Blu-rays).

I've found that there is very little break-in time with any of the EMP speakers. A couple of hours is all you'll need. Enjoy!

Probably the most impressive speaker that I’ve heard for under $1000/pair would be the JBL Studio 530. It had a great midrange and one of the most 3-dimensional soundstage I’ve heard on a bookshelf...

It really depends how large and open your room is, whether to go ported or sealed. Sealed designs can take more of an advantage of small rooms (cabin gain due to a more gentle rolloff), while ported...

Are you talking about Monsoon or Magnepan? If Magnepan, they are probably the most reviewed speakers in the world. BTW, I owned a set of Monsoon speakers for my computer desktop.
