OK. Picture are uploading right now be up soon. They definately sound huge, but all I can say is AV123 makes some helluva speakers. I listened to a John Mayer Blu-Ray disc which is awesome, Speakers set to large (no sub)they sounded good, good imaging, good bass, switched to the Rocket 850s, BAM... much crisper cleaner, tigher bass. I listened for about 30 minutes.
Then I set it up for movies,
Movie #1 was GI Joe (blu-ray) . Once again sounded big, throws a good image but found it a little fatiguing. I needed something with a little more background music..
Movie #2 Gladiator (DVD) The battle scenes were loud but clear but the horn blows before battle was litke ...OUCH. The music score also kinda hurt. Switching back to the Rockets I found it much more pleasing to my ears. I noticed a scence after the big fight at the begining at the after party I couldn't quite make out something whispered to Russel Crowes ear, so I switched back to the JBLs to see If I could make it out with them. Not much of a difference.
So far the Rockets are cleaner, tighter, crisper, transparent. Not at all what I was expecting, but I've got the JBL kicking as I type as to break them in. They may need some time to break-in befor I can be critical of them, I know my Rockets sounded crapy when I first got'em.
