well i would recommend JBL... because JBL Speakers has a long line of quality sound and style in the audio industry.JBL has become more mass market in their consumer loudspeakers throughout time. On the other hand, they have also staked out a position at the highest end of the consumer field with their Project speakers, consisting of the Everest and K2 lines that were particularly successful in foreign markets. is offline   Reply With Quote

If I was in your shoes, I would go to a retailer in your area and see if that model or similar is on display. Take a dvd/cd with your prefered music or movie and take a test drive. Usual Box-stores may have poor surroundings, but specialty stores would have half-decent setups, that is if you have not heard them already. Few may offer Try-before-you-buy. Bottom line is how they sound and feel. Good luck in your quest.

I like your JBL. Personally, in my HT, I use a JBL MP418SP for some rockin' hard sub..

Well, if I had to choose between JBL or Velodyne then I would have definitely select JBL. One of my friend is using JBL systems in his home theater system and the sound effects are really great.
