Just joined up with Club Polk. Snagged some TSi400's from Polk's ebay store and also picked up a CS20 center from the egg. I know that most here seem to think the Monitors, especially the 70's, are a better value. I can't really argue that, but I just didn't like the looks of the Monitor line. Call me shallow. I thought about getting the TSi500's, but I will use these for mostly home theater (95%) and will be used with an SVS sub, so I figured I could get by with the 400's and save a few bucks there. I am currently running a 5.1 setup but am wired for 7.1. I have a pair of Monitor 30's I am using for side surrounds. I was thinking of moving the 30's to rear surround duty and picking up a pair of TSi100 for the sides. The rears need to be wall mounted and even though the 30's are a little hefty, I think I can accomplish this. My other option would be to leave the 30's as the side surrounds and pick up a pair of OWM3's for the rears. This would save a few bucks but I am not sure of the sound quality of the OWM's. Does anyone have any experience with using these as rears? I haven't read much on here concerning them.
Anyhow, let me know your opinions. Looking forward to getting these set up and hear how they sound. Am currently running a set of Onkyo speakers and sub. Hopefully these will be a significant step up from those:D. Thanks. Glad to be here at Club Polk
