Absolutey fantastic. I had wrote a big spiel in response but the page closed and I lost it. The bostons are crackers, such tiny speakers and such massive sound. Definitely go for the 609, maybe look at trialling the pair together first. What sort of budget are you working with if u don't mind me asking? I've had mine for around 6 months and I am completely satisfied and fully endorse the purchase. However the 609 isn't used to its full potential by the XS so if you are really in to your AV look at the mid range speakers as apposed to style speaker packages as I know the 609 will drive a lot larger, more high end units. Still the Bostons do punch above their weight And for me it was love at first sight! Hope it helps
Well atm its for my bedroom setup so i dont really need anything more than a 5.1 package. I can also say the amp won't be fully utilised to its potential but i suppose at least theres always potential for upgrading if i choose to in the future. My other option was the improved jamo a102 system, i think i'll try and get a demo of both. Budget wise i havent really set one in stone but have been working around the £1000 mark at the very most. I could go for a much higher end speaker package but there just wouldnt be a point in the size room i have. I guess im looking for something that sounds great and performs well so i can kick back and watch a movie. I've always been an onkyo fan so avr wise there was never much point lookin at anything else for me. Thanks for the reply i like to here other peoples opinions before i make a decision.
