week before I have checked out the Harman kardon-JBL speakers and onkyo basic model and felt that onkyo was better than HK-JBL......so prefer onkyo...
can u suggest any combi or different brand
-how is pro-fx, sensai, jbl speakers???????
There is a wide range at different price points for speakers. I've auditioned Wharfedale Diamond9.0 & 9.5, MonitorAudio Bronze, Jamo, KEF IQ series and Acoustic Energy AELite, so can speak about them. I dont know about ProFX, JBL or Sensai.
Of the lot I auditioned, I chose Wharfedale Diamond 9.5 for their warm sound, and good bass and their price. These are big floor standing speakers.
Speaker choice can be based on :
- Room Size
- Music preferences ( Indian, Western, Classical, Rock/Pop etc. )
- Movies/Music mix, which you said is 50:50.
- Do you like to listen to sound that is sharp or warm ?
- Aesthetics. How particular are you about this ? Do you want the HT to integrate with a FlatPanel TV you already have ? If yes, do you want the speakers to be small & discrete or are you ok to have stands/wall mounted speakers next to TV ?
Bear in mind, I am not discouraging you from buying the Onkyo S5100. Audition the package and then decide. Most of the HTIBs are manufacturer defined packages, so should be ok.
