I'm at the final stage of getting my HT/2 channel room set up. I have a pre-wired 7.1 set-up and I will be running the speakers with Emotiva XPA-5 for the surrounds and center and the Emotiva XPA-2 for the fronts. The sub is the SVS PB13-Ultra. My HT room is 20x13.8x9.
The two set of speakers that I'm looking at are the Polk LSi 15's, LSiC and 4 LSiFX for the dipole and bipole surrounds. The other speaker set are the SVS MTS series speakers MTS towers, MCS centers and 4 MBS book self speakers.
I listened to them both for both HT and 2 channel music and I like them both. The SVS maybe have a little better detail but if I never auditioned them I would be happy with the LSi's. I figure with amps I'm driving them with they should open up even more. My room will also be sound treated as well.
The price difference between the two is about $1700 more for the MTS line.
What would you guys do if you were in my shoes?
Thanks for your thoughts.
FYI I have a 5.1 Polk Audio Rti series in my tv room and it sounds great for tv watching.
