I'm somewhat considering this. Just not sure it's the right move or not.

Considering speaker upgrade.

Decided to go with Ascend Sierra-1's up front and HTM-200's in the rear! They're such highly reviewed speakers that they seem like the best and safest option. Plus they have other colors!

Thanks...

Wrong person quoted.

Just placed my order for 3xSierra-1's satin cherry and a pair of HTM-200's! Also ordered Pangea LS200 24" and 36" stands.

65% off $1,000 is $350. But like I said, we don't know that you get that discount on every speaker BB has. And as far as best sound, like everyone said you'll have to try them out yourself. You can...

Why no center? I'm not positive what your discount is for speakers. If it's the same for everything or brand specific is the question. At $179 that's 65% off that Klipsch sub. The 5 ML Motion...

If I'm seeing this correctly, you're comparing a nearly $2,000 diy tower to a $850 production bookshelf? Maybe I looked at the wrong speaker.

Are there any common and relatively inexpensive stands around 36" for the HTM-200's?

Also has it been determined that even with the different size speakers in the bookshelves/towers and the centers that they are perfectly matched?

Has anyone had a chance to compare the Sierra-1 to the new SVS Prime bookshelf (and centers possibly)? These are my two leading choices right now.

I see that you recently sold a pair of Sierras. Can I ask the reason and what you upgraded to? I'm heavily leaning toward buying all B-stock Sierra1's and HTM 200's. Also what stand did you use for...

Has anyone been able to directly compare the Prime bookshelves to Ascend Sierra 1's?

Edited this to just the Sierra 1 as it's my front runner right now.

Be sure to listen to the speakers and blind compare them against some others. I listened to the LS50's yesterday and the Cambridge S30's for $199 were decent competition for $1300 less. The LS50 is...
