Realistically if a speaker sounds good it sounds good, no matter the usage. What frequently happens is something will be described as 'musical' because often those are more critical listeners than HT users. Given that, it stands to reason if something passes muster for music it will be more than capable for HT duties.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite...

As someone who is cross shopping the CG25 with the SVS Ultra Bookshelf/Center combo, what do you not like about them or what do you hope to gain if you move to RSL?

the lounj is a general interest/hobby discussion forum.

I agree with Jim 100%. I've used my RSLs to this point for mostly home theater, and I've recently purchased the new line for a dedicated theater room application. I use music to evaluate for the exact reason that Jim cited - if it sounds good for music, I'll be happy with it for HT. The inverse is not always true. I recently auditioned some PowerSound Audio MT-110s. I love that company and have been a customer of the owner's since 2001 when he was with SVS. They sounded really good for movies...very dynamic, loud, and efficient. But with music, they sounded a bit wonky to my ears. The RSL CG5/25 gives up a bit in terms of the overall dynamics, IMO, but they sound much more natural and balanced to my ears, while also providing plenty of crisp, clean impact for movies. But while I will probably want to enjoy some music from time to time, I chose these for what will be movies/sports/tv 99% of the time in a 5.2.4 Atmos system.

Well everyone, I got them all hooked up and man.....I am blown away!! The sound is amazing to say the least. I have owned nothing but Bose since the early 90's and cannot believe what I have been missing. I spent the last 4 days binge watching movies because I never heard such great sound. That subwoofer....I've had to straighten pictures already! My wife keeps thinking she is hearing thunder LOL
Also, RSL just started offering the speakers I bought as a package now but for $20 more. Glad I ordered when I did!

That's excellent news! And yeah, RSL is a ton of bang for the buck. You'll get a lot of enjoyment out of those, especially since you added them to a subwoofer. Have fun with 'em!
