Aww screw em!
You shouldn't need to be defensive of your system...as long as you like it.
And yeah the HT thing was a generalization but damn, you can't say there is a single speaker on earth that does music better than any other...music is too wide a field too...
My Jordans for instance suck at orchestra or really heavy piano passages...just no way for a 4" driver to do it all. They do a damn fine job with acoustic music and other music that isn't too busy.
This doesn't mean they are unlistenable...they just don't excel.
Rockets do not excel at music...they do it, and they don't do a horrible job mind you, but they excel at HT...they have the dynamic power and agility to convey music, voice and all the other noises together in a movie and not turn it into an incoherent mess.
I do not know jack about the song towers so I don't make negative assumptions about them, but I have heard a lot of people say they liked them better than the 850s....so cool...they probably do music better and ht just as well...neat.
Sure this isn't the post dissection and analysis subforum?
Funny how I just came over here to agree that the "review" was crap...BTW is there anyone in the Atlanta area that has some Salks, I would love to hear a pair even though I don't *plan* on making any audio purchases any time soon...hell, I think I would rather SEE some...I love looking at those veneers!!
