    @halo I should have looked at them, I have heard good reviews here but the upgrade path would probably be a better receiver etc. This should get her through college and then I expect her to buy me a graduation present. Have you heard the S20, the more or less equivalent of the B6.2?

    I have the S15 bookshelf speakers and I had the S60 floorstanding speakers for several years before upgrading to the Usher CP-6311 floorstanding speakers. Both of the Polk Signature Series speakers that I own(ed) are ridiculously good at their price points (and beyond). I had the Elac Uni-Fi UB5, UC5, and UF5 speakers as well. In my honest opinion, the Elac speakers are not in the same league as the Polk speakers, despite the higher cost of the Elac's. This hobby is subjective so please keep that in mind when reading my comments.

    I do hope you both enjoy that setup for many years to come and that she gets you something nice when she graduates!
