That’s a very nice list of speakers. Looks like you did indeed do your homework :). Unfortunately, I’ve only auditioned the Hsu from your list, but I think any on the list would be very nice to...

I find it curious that you quoted my response out of context, but ignored the statement that fueled my response. You will note that I didn’t respond to another of jdm’s snide comments about Bose...

I don’t know how you could possibly go wrong with the Gamma 218. It looks to be a very serious subwoofer, and I’ve always been attracted to dual-opposed sealed designs, just like you have. I think...

We get the, “why don’t you like Bose” threads all the time here and elsewhere. They seem to pop up weekly. The people on AVS do not start these threads. Move on? Sour grapes? It appears that you...

Yes, that was one of the best reads! I wish I had been there. I think most of the confusion came from people who could not tell sealed from ported. Still, they did pick their favorites, even...

You’re right, gbreda. There is no way to compare the S3000i to the Mariana or the Gothams. Memory is fleeting, especially mine. The Gothams (4 of ‘em) were in a very large room filled with 40,000...

You have a few choices. Floor standing speakers are possible, although the left side of the room (left of the nook where I assume the entertainment center would go) doesn’t look promising. You...

I’m always happy to read about people who go out and audition speakers. That’s a great first step and you’ve found two speakers that you like. Wait a few days and go audition them again. Second...

I hear what you’re saying and understand where you are coming from. I don’t like the term musical either. Perhaps more succinct may be the better term? You’ve owned far more subs than I, and I’ve...

Hi Jeffrey,

Just tell your wife that in-ceiling front stage or a sound bar are both horrible choices and should be avoided at all costs. Have her take a look at some good looking bookshelf speakers and make...

LOL! To tell you the truth, I didn't even specify the grille. I don't know what the heck I'll be getting :o. Perhaps I should contact Tom and give him my preference before he ships ... duh :).
