    Bernal,
    You might want to elaborate on room size, listening preference etc... I love my Velo SPL 1200R, but my focus is music, with HT being a distant second. I don't know much about th other lines. However, I will warn you that some people will condemn a manufacturer based on one or two models. One person in another thread claimed that the Velo's he's heard had a muddy sound. Nothing could be further from the truth with mine. It has a tight base and many nice features. As you know, Velo has many lines and each is geared toward a different type of consumer. Good luck and let us know. Btw, Audio Advisor has some deals on Velos right now.
    MAIN: Polk Lsi9s; Polk PSW505; Lsic (in box); Onkyo SR-875; Parasound 2250; Cambridge Audio 740C; LG BD370
    OFFICE: Polk Lsi7; REL T3; HK 3490; CA 840W; Onkyo C-S5VL
    BENCHED: CS20; OWM3s

    Nice setup in your signature OP. go for the biggest one you can afford. Also as NewHT mentioned, knowing room size will help. Is the room dedicated or does it open up to a new room, all this helps in sub choice and will effect the output at the listening position.
