I would maybe go with the S55 or S60 if your budget allows. Definitely the S30 over the S35. While the S35 has more drivers, they're only 3" each - I have read people describing the sound as being "thin", especially for male voices. As long as you don't crank the volume, the X1600H should be okay to drive those tower speakers. It might help if you included a sub, that way you can take some of the load off of the towers, and let the sub handle a lot of the grunt work. It will allow you to play at a slightly higher volume, too since the towers won't draw as much power if they were set to large/full band.Hi Everyone ,
I am planning to build a HT in my living room (18 x 10). My seating distance would be 6 feet from the tv screen. Mostly i would mostly like to watch movies / tv shows and occasionally some music. Cant decide between the Polk S50 vs S55 vs S60 or any other alternative tower speakers (I prefer towers over bookshelves). And i have finalized the avr to be Denon x1600 (Any suggestions / alternatives ?)
Auditioning is quite difficult , so i just have to buy them. I will building them in stages , ie will add sub later.
And at the moment ,i have narrowed down the Polk S30 over S35 as centre (will the S35 serve better).
Any suggestions would be greatly helpful for my purchase. Thanks.
