im looking to replace some old rt400 polks. the mids are alright on the polks but the highs are down right harsh.

i just bought an hsu stf-2 sub. bass is great but im looking to add some quality mids/highs.

do any cbm-170 owners live near green bay wisconsin. id like to audition before i buy.

also do good bookshelves and a good sub perform like nice floorstanders? ive never owned a nice set of bookshelves.

any other input on the cbm-170 would help

Andrew,

Ordered CBM-170s yesterday and I will be previewing them against several other speakers. I'll report when they're here but I'm no where near Green Bay BUT I like the Packers, although we'd trade you Holmgren for your head coach aboutg now.

Ask on the Ascend Forum- http://forum.ascendacoustics.com/index.php . You will reach more Ascend Acoustics owners that way.

unless you have an EXCELLENT amp (and most receivers under $1000 don't fall in that category) good bookshelves should sound *BETTER* than floorstanders because they don't require nearly as much quality power.

You won't have to worry about harsh treble with the Ascends.

Andrew,

Edster is the Ascend man so he can steer you right. My CBM-170s are shipping tomorrow and I'll give you some more information after they're here, set up and I've previewed them.

Edster gave me some great advice and I took it since I couldn't find a Ascend owner in Spokane. He suggested I order two CBM-170s, preview them and if I don't like them, ship them back and you're only out $25-$30 in return shipping.

Edster also assures me that they won't be going back and I suspect he's right BUT I'll give the Paradigms and BAs a fair shot, although the BAs will have to be substantially better, given their higher price points, i.e., 2 fronts and center for twice the price of 2 fronts, 2 rears and a 340C center from Ascend. Good luck on the hunt, Dave.
