What is the sound you want?
Good question. What do I want?
* A bigger room *sigh*, but not much I can do about that. I tell myself I am lucky to have a dedicated room from listening and my office.
* A stable center image. This is my biggest problem right now. The image wanders often to the left speaker enough that it annoys me on a regular basis. I think this is a room issue, but don't know how to fix it.
* More mid weight (which is why the comment above about the AS1200 letting the P-Audio "keep up" with the Servo subs, got me intrigued). I have a depression in my response between 150 Hz and 350 Hz.
* Easier flexibility in positioning, which is why I am considering the separate sub/Otica choice. This would let me position the mains to get the best imaging and sound stage and subs to get the flattest bass response.
This about covers it. I may have someone local that has an AS1200 to demo. I am also open to other ideas...
