So... what I've been looking at are TSi500, CS20, and TSi200 speakers, from Crutchfield for $1289.96 or 75T, 25C, and 45B Monitors, from NewEgg for $1019.80. Of course, I'm watching ads daily, especially NewEgg, as they have a deal on Monitor 60 Series ii right now. I'm looking to see if the have a deal for the Monitor 70.
Anyway, all of these speakers seem to have very similar specs. Is one the best choice overall?
What's your budget? If you want to spend the least amount, the Polk Monitors will be the best. If your budget is $1500 or more, I would look into HSU and HTD instead. I love my Monitor 70s, Klipsch RW-12d sub, and the CS2 will be on order soon. However, once we get our new house I am replacing my set up with HTD. A friend of mine has them, and the sound is amazing for both music and movies.
The monitor sound good, and I am very happy with them for what I paid for. $149.99 for each monitor on sale from newegg. The sub was on sale too for $299.99. For the 2.1 set up I paid about $621.00.
