I know you don't like metal much, but can you try some when you get a chance (if you have any metal
) and let me know how they sound?
I actually just hooked them up in my normal L/R placement on the floor to give them a good break in session overnight. I bought them originally thinking I'd use them on the upstairs entertainment center, but I learned they are not sheilded, so they won't work with our older CRT TV entertainment center. If I use them at the computer I'd need to buy a little amp of some sort, or I guess I could hook them up as a zone 2 or zone 3 on the Onkyo. I was also considering using them as height or width channels in 9.1 I'm not a believer in the absolute necessity of matching surrounds, so the fact they aren't wharfedale or klipsch won't bother me.
You should swing by sometime soon and check them out for yourself. You're close enough!!!
I don't metal much. I've been listening to light rock actually. Give me a song to try? If I can stomach it - I'll try, but I'm not likely to know what to listen for because that hard metal music is grating to me. I might end up disliking the speakers at the point they start streaming metal music
