Hi Guys

First post on this board.

I have been into woodworking for awhile and DIY projects so I have interest in DIY audio especially given the value if done correctly.

I am starting to research what is offered for 5.1 HT setups. I have some interest in these:

- North Creek Vision setup (or rhythm setup)
- BESL Series 5 - have to figure out what to use for surrounds
- Orca/Focal HT setup from Zalytron
- Audax Designer Series - seen lots of posts on this one.

Zalytron seems to have many options that could be used for the speakers besides the 'official' HT setups.

When I went around and listened to tons of monitors, the B&W Nautilus 805 sound stood out as my favorite...very enveloping sound, so that is my preference for sound.

Comments on these choices, other choices etc...

Well, what *I* would look for in the price range you're talking about:

5 identical speakers plus 2 medium subs.

Maybe 5 ME2's and 2 sealed Shiva's?



I'm a proponent of identical speakers for HT, and since I own a big sub now, I would rather 2 smaller ones for music listening. One is fine for movies.
