If all I did was watch movies I would be fine with the 888's. How speakers sound for music is far more important. I bought the Noesis with music on my mind, movies were an afterthought.
That's what I mean when I say the salks are the 2nd best speaker I've ever heard, I'm thinking about music not movies. I'm so glad it worked out for me that my favorite speaker I've ever heard for music also happens to be probably one of the best speakers possible for movies, if i had preferred the salks for music that would have been very bad... Not only would I have been putting the Noesis up for sale but then I would have had to deal with the fact that I would have limits for watching movies. I don't like having limits.
That's why I probably better not hear thr ls 6's. I dodged a bullet this time, but maybe I shouldn't roll the dice again.
Oh whatever, I'd jump at the chance to hear the ls 6's.
