i was just looking over the reviews for the NS 555's and you can't beat the reviews, they are all very pleased. and for a SET around $200...i don't think they could be beat.

Re: Quality sound at a good price

Anyone had any dealings (good or bad] with the Polk RC85i speaker?

Re: Quality sound at a good price

I have not dealt with that paticular speaker, but I have 2 polk towers, and they have some of the best imaging I have heard. I would look into it. I highly recommend polks.

Re: Quality sound at a good price

I have Infinity in-walls in my theater and they sound great! They are the Infinity CS60 2-Way 6-1/2.
I paid about 150.00 for the pair. I have a pair of 5-1/4" two ways in the rear. Paid about 80.00 for the pair. I am very pleased with the way these sound. Make sure the wall you put them in is built correctly. My fronts did not sound great the first time i mounted them. My home theater is in my basement. The wall I chose for the speakers ended up not having any studs to speak of. The wall was built with 1x1's glued to the back of the sheetrock. The wood was just holding it off the concrete wall. I rebuilt the wall with real studs and Mounted the speakers. They now sound great. I have them playing through my perfed screen. I love them. I used in-wall speakers to save on space. I have very little space in the basement 13x20 and wanted the home theater to look clean. I did not want speakers sitting in front or on the sides of my screen. I complement them with a 15in subwoofer and movies are a great experience with them.

Re: Quality sound at a good price

I ended up going with the Polk RC85i speaker for the fronts, rear and center; it seems to be a good balance according to my non-audiophile hearing...thanks for all the input!
