    Great speakers, meh price. I've got 70s and thought about the 90s, but the rear firing port keeps me from them at this point. For $350-400, I'd consider them. At $500, I'd have no interest from a purely financial standpoint.

    I thought 500 seemed steep too, but he is adding the center as well. Seems like a nice center.

    I'm including the center. I can get a pair of 90s local for under $200 and there's a cs350 in Austin for $90. Just saying...

    If you are buying or did buy these LS 90's......$400 w/center is a good deal. Add, vibrapods (28lb each) with large TipToes Cones in a tri-figuration (two up front/one in back) underneath Speakers for resonance control......via tube or solid state and listen to these baby's sing! Stone

    LS's with CS350 center is worth it. I am enjoying 2xLS70's, 2xLS90's, and 2xCS350LS's. Powerful combo.

    Having two centers like that with the tweeters firing not in the same plane vertically would cause some issues, wouldn't it?

    Better to stack the centers? I'm running a single CS-400 and it handles everything I throw at it,lol. Someone should offer the seller $350 and see if he'll take it.

    I don't notice any echoing. The reason I added the second center was to provide more saturation to voice in movies. It did that well, behind a second subwoofer, I would say this provides the best net gain to my audio setup.

    It won't echo, it'll have phase issues. No coherent point-source.

    I'm a big fan of LS90s. Great sound, about as much low end as you'd even need when powered correctly. The highs can get a little harsh if your equiptment is prone to bright sound, but a cable/amp change can probably tame most problems. I'd say that $500 is the top of the price range for the LS90s+CS350. Did you end up getting them or passing?

    I passed. Was just curious as to their sound. I have a pair or RTi12s and while I love them for HT, I only like them for music. I am probably 70-30 music. I am keeping my RTA8Ts, because I love their sound and have had them forever. I can keep experimenting with speakers knowing I have them to fall back on.

    Nothing out of phase. Both speakers run off the same amp. To my ear it just sounds like one huge center channel.
