I bought these today. I plan to get the matching surrounds once they are in stock again.
I will be replacing my 1 year old polk M70 towers and CS2 center. I will be powering these off my acurus a3x200 being fed from my onkyo 709. I also have an ED A5-350 subwoofer.
I loved the polks for movies, but for music I just cannot make them sound right. Even running audyssey and setting the treble to -4 on the receiver they are too bright and lead to ear fatigue rather quickly. I have tried manually disabling audyssey and setting the 2 channel EQ on my own and I just cannot find the sweet spot.
Every review I found for the emptek says they are a neutral speaker. I hope they are what I am looking for.
I got the towers on the 50% off deal so for the price it all seems like a steal.
