Yes, I looked at those first actually. Unfortunately out of my price range for the moment... plus I really couldn't find any decent reviews of them, and no shops nearby to give them a listen unfortunately. Again, trying to keep similar sound quality, just couldn't confirm if they'd give me the bang to be worth the buck... I've listened to the Icon bookshelves, and liked the way they sounded, so I assumed the RB's would be a step up. Plus I'm concerned that the size of my room will be an issue with smaller speakers. Hence the reason I was pretty excited to see the RB-61's go on sale like that. They work for me you think... especially at a sale price?
