I tested the following yesterday: 601 - fronts 600 - rear LRC60 - centre I was considering upgrading the fronts to 602.5, because with the extra cost involved with the 601 and stands. By the time you add a decent pair of stands the fronts will be close to the 602.5 price range. Question is - Will the 601 with quality stands sound better than the 602.5? My room size is 11 ft by 14 ft. Not worried about sheilding, because it will be used near a plasma. I know I should have tested the 602.5 yesterday.
