    There are quite a few speaker makes that are THX certified and alot of them are mostly studio type monitors with THX pm3 certification, Bluesky speakers go for approx £365 each another make is Mackie which i am not too sure about on price, i have M&K S-150's which are about £800 each and these are THX Ultra certified.. :)

    THX is really of dubious benefit as far as hardware is concerned. I wouldn't even bother specifically looking for it if I were you. Alot of THX certified kit is no better or worse than non THX certified kit. and it could be argued that THX certification simply adds to the production costs and so THX kit is inherently overpriced.


    Effectively, what happens is that the manufacturers pay George Lucas so that they can stick little badges on their kit.

    THX certified equipment is certainly a "thorn in side" when considering buying, it is however, a very specialised technology, I have read many articles concerning how it works and unless you have a decent size & shaped room I can't see a lot of benefit for, most people. It's an expensive "extra" but, not an essential and I won't be investing in it in the near future.

    Thanks for the links Jase...:)
