Go check out the audioholics site. They just published a review of 4 sets of affordable bookshelves aroudn which you could build your speakers. Axiom and Klipsch came out on top.

I had a pleasant email exchage with a technical specialist at Boston Acoustics. Nice guy and...
I returned from the Magnolia dept at Best Buy this afternoon. I listed to the BA Micro 130s and 120s with the VRC center. I didn't really compare the VRCs to anything, because they need to be part of my system to match the 4.5 inch mids on my BA Lynnfield VR965s. They had a deal on an open box VRC center, so I grabbed it. The Micro 130s sounded great-- MUCH better than the 120s. I played them with the VRC center and no mains and no subs on a Denon 3805 (same...
Yes, they are VR965s-- single 4.5 inch midrange, one tweeter and an 8 inch powered sub. My thinking was similar on the micro 130s- same components. After looking at our walls more closely, I believe we could install in-wall speakers, which would be an asthetically good solution. However, none of their in-wall speakers include the 4.5 inch speakers. They are also VERY expensive. I'll respond with my listening comments after my visit to the dealer at a later...
For those of you who are familiar with BA, I am evaluating the Micro 130x and Bravo II for surround speakers to go with my existing BA Lynnfield VR965 towers. (From other threads, it sounds like the VRC is the way to go for the center channel speaker.) Any opinions on the BA surround speakers would be much appreciated.
Steve et al, Awesome thread and very helpful. :cool: I'm looking for center and surround speakers for my system. I have a new Denon 3805 receiver and Boston Acoustics Lynnfield Towers (VR675s which have integrated powered subwoofers.) It sounds like you've checked out the VRC centers which would work well in my system. What are your current thoughts on surrounds? Looking at the BA line-up, and not wanting to go with VRB or CRxx bookshelfs due to their...
I'm a new member with some old stuff looking to upgrade. I purchased last year a pair of Boston Acoustics VR965 towers which I like quite a bit. They are comprised of a tweeter, a 4" midrange and I think a 75watt driven 10 inch subwoofer in each. Very smooth treble and accurate bass, and midrange is OK, but not exceptional. They replaced a 17 year old pair of Magnaplaner SMGs which I liked even more, but not in the room they needed to be in due to bass response...
