Plus, I think that any negative reviews of either the Diamond 10.1s or the CBM-170 SEs would be coming from either inexperienced users or fanboys trying to promote the speaker they have fallen in love with.
The overwhelming consensus on AVS seems to be that either of these speakers are excellent performers in their price class. Whether you will like one or the other better is going to be based mostly on your personal listening tastes. (I don't know enough about the JBLs to say the same thing). Other speakers like this in the same class are HSU HB-1s and ARX A1bs. All would be a good choice; one will undoubtedly be better for you if you have a chance to listen to them
