    Sid,

    Did you mean the center channel was "not meant" for LFE-in or "not designed" for LFE? It certainly has the option for LFE-in and the manual states it should come from the center channel...

    Mjr7531,

    While shaggypud could certainly use an R20 as a center channel, I don't think that would be much of an improvement over the recommended model (CSi20) since it's still a single woofer...

    ccon2000,

    Having an all Monitor lineup is very tempting but I would have to agree with Polkmaniac. See what sounds better before making the move. Sometimes replacing a floorstander with a...

    Rawdeal,

    MrAnderson,

    I would recommend the CS1 on a pure timbre-matching basis. The woofer and tweeter are made of the same material as the M60 and therefore would give the best match. The woofers are bi-laminate...

    I guess what it boils down to is what you plan to do with the R30 or the R50. Use as mains or surrounds? The most obvious difference b/w the two is that the R30 only has one 6.5" woofer while the...

    R line vs Monitor line
