    Question a few questions

    1.
    Curious to see if anyone hear has looked into Boston Acoustics speakers and what they thought.
    Not thinking of jumping ship or anything but, I have seen them in Tweeter and haven't had the time to listen to them mysel.f I didn't have much of a budget when i started looking into speakers so i never considered them an option before.
    What i find appealing most is the design of the VMR series, it appears to blend into a homes surroundings very well.(the book shelves particularly)


    2.
    Also, Is Onkyo and Integra one in the same?

    3.
    and lastly, i have the CSi175 as rear surround in my system as of right now would there be any noticable benefit to upgrading to the csi30 given that so little sound is actually sent though that channel.
    4.
    or is there a way split that rear surround channel into two speakers given my current receiver. (yeilding a pseudo 7.1 channel experience)

    I have heard BA, and honestly thought they were not even as good at the RTi line, much less the LSi line....

    Yes, Integra is "high-end" Onkyo. With Integra you get gold plated RCA connection in the back (maybe the higher Onkyos do this too) and higher quality parts inside the receiver. Also aluminum brushed volume knob and a nicer appearance. I've owned both and they have the same sonic signature. Nice receiver if you like the way it sounds.
