If this is your first time venturing into 'room speakers' after long use of headphones, specifying a 'flavor' by choosing a manufacturer without having tried them may lead to disappointment (might not, but...). You may find the nuances of speaker-room interaction far outweigh actual speaker choice (headphones have this 'problem' to a much lesser extent). If you are going to buy new, BY ALL MEANS request a demo in your own room with your own equipment. If you are buying used, you may want to start lower on the price totem pole to understand your room, and then upgrade accordingly. The other solution which many people seem to appreciate, would be to purchase something like a room equalizer (Parc, Tact, or Behringer DEQ2496,etc) to solve speaker-room interaction issues.
Thanks Tom, and T. Well, since I am in the military, I move place to place pretty often. Yes, I know that sucks big time when you have expensive audio gears. Recent years just start to settle down little bit, avarage 3~4 years per move. But listening room alway mid size. I know I should buy speakers first, But I had this chance to get pair Melody KT88 mono very cheap, they are closing down in US, can't help it!
Can anybody tell me how Omega and Zu house sound like?
