Cambridge s30/s50 combo for 5.1?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The Cambridge s30 seems like a nice speaker for modest 5.1 movie/music duty. The s50 center doesn't seem to have anywhere near the positive comments. Is this a bad choice at the pricepoint? I'd like to keep things voicematched as well as I can.

Buy another pair of the S30, and use one as a center - only $20 difference
in the price.

I did consider five s30's but was concerned about the ability of a single one to handle center duties. Room is optimal for 6.1 (sofa near center of room) so could use the 6th as rear center. Didn't realize they only sold in pairs.

It is more than able to handle center duties - and is better suited.
It will blend better with the front, and suround speakers. Having
all the speakers the same, is the way to go.

Given a choice between 5 of the s30's and 5 Infinity Primus 163's, where would you lean? I am amazed at some of the positive pub the Infinity gets for its price.

I hands down prefer the Cambridge - the Cambridge sounds more
realistic to me, and images better. Your choice and good luck.
