You either love audio and have an amazing setup or get something aesthetically pleasing to a budget with mediocre results. Once again just mho
Cool story bro, but perhaps if it was just my living room esthetics would matter less, but for me I doubt I'd need anything more than rb51 for surrounds. That said I think the market is broad enough to cater to both sound and personal esthetics preferences for marginal price difference.
I said nothing about resale.
Nothing I've done in audio has been of mediocre performance for the money I spent, IMO of course.
