Emotiva, Chane, or HSU ... How to decide if there is no way to hear any of them?
Well, maybe it would make sense to order the bookshelf versions of all three and decide based upon what you hear and what you like? Otherwise it's just a guessing game. Yes, you would have to return two sets of speakers, but wouldn't you spend $80 (or whatever) to have the peace of mind that comes with KNOWING instead of guessing?
Of course, you will have to wait until the Chanes are back in stock, but it shouldn't be too long now. As to the Chanes, sign up on their website and get yourself into their forum area. There are sign-up threads to be on their waiting list for each speaker you want. Jon Lane has promised significant discounts to those on their waiting lists. You can always cancel if you decide to go a different direction.
It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.
