I'm in the process of regressing back to a 2.0 system in my main room - sick of dealing with subs and surrounds. I currently have a pair of Boston Acoustics VR-M60's and an older Yamaha RX-V620. I'm thinking of getting an HK 3490 and some towers.
Monitor 70's can be had for a steal right now - are RTi A7's really ~250% the performance? I live in NC and auditions of either are essentially impossible without a purchase first. I'd like a set up that is considerably less bright than what I have now, I seem to have developed some treble sensitivity (that or brittle highs were just a novelty). The room is 12x25 with cathedral ceilings, but because of other space issues the speakers will need to be pretty flush with the wall - so the TSi's are not an option, unfortunately - front ported (or the neato rear power port with dispersion plate) only.
They'd be used for 50/50 music and tv/movies/games and a moderate volume.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
