For $400 you could get your own stand for the MK Sound LCR-950s. They are already regarded as a great home theater speaker for small to medium-sized room. But if you are looking for a (small) performance boost plus an integrated stand, the MK Sound 950F speakers might be for you. With a -3dB point down to 80Hz (and probably lower in room), they should have no problem blending with a sub though they won't shake the room with bass. The wide plinth means you won't have to worry about it tipping over and the fact that the stand is built into the speaker means you don't have to worry about it falling off. That alone may justify the price increase to some. Discuss "MK Sound 950F Floorstanding Speaker Preview" here. Read the article.
