    Get the 70's and don't look back, matches the i40 center perfect and much better then the R line of speakers, I think. I have the 70's the 40 and the rti38's for rears and its amazing... also i run the psw404 sub, great combo, good luck

    ONE OTHER QUESTION, SINCE THESE ARE BI-WIRE CAPABLE OR SHOULD I SAY BI-AMP CAPABLE, WOULD IT BE OK OR BENEFICIAL TO BI-AMP. CONSIDERING THAT I AM USING MY DENON 2802 ONLY AS A PREAMP TO MY 5 CHANNELL AMP, COULD I USE THE MAIN SPEAKER OUTS IN COMBO WITH 5 CHANNEL AMP TO SPEAKERS?

    Yes they sound good both ways with HT being the strong point. You can also run front outs from the receiver for the highs and use the external amp for the lows, I have done this and it works fine.. or you can just b--wire with 2 sets of speaker wire sets and use the external amp for this.. I know CC is blowing these things out, i paid 799.98 for my 70's.. just picked up a set of rti38's for 216.00 with the r15 speakers i traded in, these went for 379.99 originally... can't beat it!!

    Get the 70's as they are the best in this class, other then the overdone rti150's which are way overpriced and with a good sub uneeded...
