My local dealer said 3 of the Maroon 5 band members came in and bought Focus 340s and traded in B&W CM9s. I know one of the 340s were traded back in but I don't know for what.

That depends some AVRs or Pre's you'll need to run the auto calibration also to get it right. I've ran a 4.1 setup on 2 different occasions and the Integra and Sony flipped back and forth just fine,...

There should be plenty of options, but as I'm biased, I'd suggest the Dynaudio Xeo2 and a Xeo Connect. The connect you could connect to your laptop and the xeo2 would get wireless transmissions from...

I've heard Aerial both the 6T and 7T, I actually like the 6T better. They were warmer sounding then my Dyn Focus 260s. I felt detail and soundstage were very similar.
