Sorry, I can't remember, but didn't the 1+1's come with a sub? It's been 15 years since I've heard them, but I don't remember them as having the dynamics comapared to today's speakers. Yes, they produced a wonderful soundstage and were quite musical when properly setup, but I don't think they'd make a great HT speaker. I have a pair of Acoustat 2+2's that are boxed and garaged because they just didn't produce when in the HT evironment. They sounded great and had decent dynamics with a 100W class A amp when used for music, but not so wonderful when used for HT. Soundstaging just is not as critical because you have a center channel where most of the voices come from. Even though you have a small room, I think you'd be better suited by using your vandy's (possibly upgrading to signatures), and buying a good sub. I also agree with Sean-Acoustat's were never known for being efficient speakers and my center channel had to be turned way down and the mains way up to try and match the acoustats- but my center channel still was much too prevelent. I thought it might be because of lack of content to the mains, but when I used a more efficient speaker, it made a huge difference.
