will JBL es90 be a good match? any recommendation for the surround speaker?
I spent three years looking for a good set of speakers to replace my old Wharfedale W60's. I listened to countless systems and trialed them with some really demanding classical music - piano, organ, and orchestral. I finally discovered, purchased, and have listened to ever since, a pair of Bowers and Wilkens 600 series standup speakers. They are brilliant across the entire audio spectrum without any speaker additions, deletions, distortion of any sort or muddying. Rock and movies are also really, really good. I haven't heard a theater system which sounds nearly as good. The 7.2 809 was changed in around Christmas and now everything sounds even better. No subwoofer is needed, either. Try 'em and you'll buy 'em, no doubt about it.
