Sorry... didn't mean to tangent this into a speaker thread. :oops: Thank you for the advice! I just learned about the Philharmonics yesterday and will look when I have a moment. :)\n\nPeng, indeed. Those cats are not writing anything but their own opinion, and we all know about opinions! For example, I get that the KEF Q series are good speakers. Are they right for me? Im not going to avoid listening to a set at my local shop because a couple reviewers commented about some dullness in the mids or bass or whatever. That being said, when I read multiple reviews across the MA Silver product line and the only poor comment was about their FX speakers, hell, I WANT to hear those, and so I planned my budget for a full 7 speaker set. Now I can afford them if I want, but I can also buy Revel, Martin Logan or Kefs all around the same price point! Right now my front runners aren't even on this list and I can almost afford a full 7.2 lineup and the amp to drive the front 3. If I don't like those when I hear them, I can always fall back on the others. and maybe the Emo DR-3 turns back into my fantasy stack of 7 2200 monoblocks! (Hell, I could buy-amp all 14!) (Now i'm just getting silly.)\n\nSee, I did bring it back to the AMPs!\n\nYou guys rock!
