Right now I'm just reading reviews online of various 5.1 speaker systems and came across the RSL 5.1 home theater speaker system. I really like the way they look and got great review from the reviewer here on AVS. I wanted to ask you guys if yall thought this setup would be more than adequate for a small room like mine? And... regarding the sub that comes with it. Is that all the sub I will need, or if I want to go a big deeper on BR tracks, Should I go with a SVS SB-2000 ?
Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated,
I ran 5 NHT Super Zeros in my room which is only a little bigger, 13x14x9. They did pretty good for movies and were great with most music (not rock, metal).
I upgraded to the Klipsch system since I'm mostly movies and TV. It is a very significant upgrade for movies, metal and hard rock music.
I'm sure the RSLs sound great and they do have return shipping included.
I would take a look at a package from SVS (SVSound) with their new prime speaker line.
A pair of bookshelfs are $500, center $350, satellites for surrounds are $270 pair or $500 if you want matching for the mains.
If space is an issue I would add their PC2000 sub. You'd be under $2K for the package using the satellites.
They have a 45 day in home trial with shipping both ways included.
The ideal thing would be for you to order both sets of speakers and even the RSL sub and compare them both in your home and return the one you like least.
Who knows you might prefer the RSL sub and SVS speakers or some other combination.
