|We just moved and are in the midst of renovating an older home and one of the rooms will be my listening room (home theatre) and son's playroom. I primarily listen to 2 channel vinyl but have started to get in to 5.1 music a little. We have a very active 3 year old who like to push on speakers so I have to switch to either on-wall or in-wall speakers or get him a straightjacket. Dimensions of the room are 11x20 with 9 foot ceilings though the listening area itself will be about 11x12 (the rest is my son's play area). My budget for all 5 speakers is about $2500-3000 and I listen to primarily 60's/70's rock, jazz, and some classical.|
Since hardly anyone has these type of speakers available for demo, I am buying somewhat blind. Anyone have experience with these? Even if you don't know these, I would like to hear some experiences you may have with other candidates. Seems like everyone is making in-wall speakers now, so the choices are getting mind-boggling.
Polk 265 LS series
Gallo A'Diva TI
Noble FIdelity LS-82
My current equipment is:
Polk LSI9's and Center with Def Tech Bi-Pole in rear
Emotiva XPA-3 to drive the mains
Onkyo TSXSR 806 receiver which drive the rears
Denon DVD 2930 DVD/SACD
B&O 9000 turntable
NAD PP2 Phono Preamp
My intention is to upgrade some of the components a little later on but this is the first step.
