    It depends on what you use your system for. If it's purely films, I would go with the bipolar 903s or the bigger ones (cant remember model no).

    If you listen to multichannel music, go with either of the ones you mentioned.

    Pretty differnet options. Dipole (903 or 506) are better for movies (effects etc), whilst 902's (and therefore probably 904's) are better with music as rears. I have 906/ 905 at the front and 902's at rear and it sounds great with movies and music. Just waiting for my 903's to arrive to replace the 902's.

    I have the 506's, they rock :) I'd suggest them, very dynamic, but you'll need some decent stands for them. They are very heavy and a lot larger than they appear to be in the pictures.

    @gfs: yes, the f***kers! Paypal investigated "we find in your favour but blah blah blah".
    I call them now methinks. Missed out on the 506's on Ebay- forgot the end date..:(

    Kazman- how far out do the 506's stick?

    The 506 will give a tiny bit for music but poo's all over the 904 for film work (Which at over twice the list price it should).
