I’ve just decided to throw my Denon soundbar out of the window after I heard how great a good 2.0 system can be. My plan is to start with a 2.0 and after a while upgrade to either 3.0 or 2.1, whatever I think will compliment the speakers I have at the time the best. The receiver I will be using is a Marantz SR5015.
The room is about 3m x 7m and 2,7m in height. Will be sitting about 3m from the TV and speakers and the speakers will be placed right beside the TV(65"). No room for me to place them wider.
I will use the speakers for 70% movie/TV and 30% for music. What is most important for me in a speakers is details and depths. I’ve listened to Totem KIN Play playing a episode of Vikings and was stunned how much details you miss with not good enough speakers.
My local HT store sells both SVS and Triangle but only listened to the SVS Ultra Bookshelfs when I was there the last time. I saw Zeos review for the SVS Ultra Bookshelfs and that he in 2016 said that they were the best speakers in that price range. Now I’ve seen his review of the Triangle Esprit Comete EZ and as I interpret these are also as good, if not better.
I will try to speak with my local store to see if they would be able to set up both speakers and let me listen to them side by side. Note that first time I listened to the SVS Ultras it was in the store floor and is much bigger room in all directions.
I would like to see if anyone of you have anything to say about SVS Ultra Bookshelf or Triangle Esprit Comete EZ or which to buy.
