    Sid - I just bought 'em, 340CMT's across the front, replacing my RT800i's and CS400i, and the CBM 170's for the surrounds. Not even close I'm afraid. Not that the RT800i's are bad. I did a direct a/b...

    Squish - a PSW404 should do you just fine then. The HSU would probably be too much for your wife, but the 404 should (?) be acceptable.

    myork - those would match up well for me to use as rear channels for my DVD-A and SACD listening (I have RT800i's as mains and a CS400i as my center).

    I've said it before and I'll say it again :D - anything from AIX records will be and is the best recorded music available - you cannot record better than this as the technology is not here yet.
