Well I'm glad to see they exist (for some reason I thought the VSX series may be it and Pioneer was scaling back). Why did they even bother with VSX elites? I guess I was kind of confused about that,...

Huh, I wonder when, it felt like when the bottom two VSX ones were first around earlier that signs of further higher end models were no where to be found (in fact I thought there may just not be with...

I'm currently shopping around to replace a 4-5 year old Sony I got, and probably get much nicer speakers too, so I want to be selective about what I drop in there...

Hmm tis true, it's not that expensive (albeit more than the new venere, and for a used speaker no less...). But yeah, I REALLY do wish that wasn't the only solution :P .

That was a good suggestion, it seems, but it also sounds like finding a Luito is not really easy at all :/ . I was told by someone that a BW center may pair well?

I may not have the chance to demo everything I like, sadly, so it's at least good to get a relative bead on things.

For instance, since it seems like it's widely accepted that the center channel...
