Between the ELT Cse and the M22, I think the difference between the two will by much less than if you compare either with the RS150.

Yeah? I thought the RS150 would have been a better choice because it is the same price as the M22s. Or, though more expensive, even the RS250. The extra expense could be chalked up to the finish, and it has the same 3 driver, 2 way configuration. But, We haven't heard the price of the Cse yet. It too may be in the same range.

Curtis,

What differences did you hear in the 3 speakers? And, being an Ascend guy, which did you prefer, and why?. We won't bite you. Promise. Guy's lets make nice to Curtis if he's courageous enough to post his opinions.

While I'm asking questions.

What is the difference between the RS150 and the RS250? They seem to have roughly the same frequency response. Is the effect of 2 woofers the ability to play louder and thus fill larger spaces, and is that the only advantage to having two woofers?

Jack - It looks like the ELT Cse is $499 for the pair - which seems pretty close to the Axioms if you add the High Gloss finish...

Aside from my "met**lic" comment I made many moons ago , and the fact that I have not heard the ELT center in a vertical orientation, I'd say tough call.

From reading the AV123 board though, the ELT Cse is going to be $500/pr. Can you confirm that Craig?

Jack... The extra bass driver will give it more SPl's... 6 db more in its operating range in an anechoic setting, and about 4-5 in room...
