    Either the FXi50's or the FXi30's will make good sound ... everyone has to chose based on their own listening preferences.

    What is Monster Z1?
    I just added surround and center channel speakers, and bought a 100' roll of Monster XP to connect them. I figure that's an improvement over the 16-guage lamp cord I used before.
