I think omni speakers are a good idea, if you have the space to make them work. I'm a teenager in a bedroom, so there's no space to try them...

Cool eyecandy though.

Omnis can sound very good, but there is a problem if you want a wide sweet spot -- you can't toe them in! So, for front channels, at least, I've moved to Controlled Directivity designs.
