Congrats on a truly fine receiver choice. I feel the Dynaudio is a great match with the NAD. I also feel that the bookshelf speakers are superior to the floorstanders(price vs performance). Check out the 52's for the fronts instead of the 72's. I always found the floorstanders in the line bass shy, so if you use a sub with the 52's you can save some money, and still have great sound.

Kef makes fine speakers, but Dynaudio gets the nod here. Good luck.

Hi hmmm since both the Kef's and the Dyna's tickles your fancy, then the most cost effective choice is the way to go considering all things being equal (In the sight of God and Man..hehe).

My choice however if I may suggest is to go with the Dyna's. The Danes makes it like nobody else. It's like a native handicraft to them.
Rick is correct you did buy smart on the NAD.

With your stated budget, you have many fine choices in a sub. I have always been a Velodyne man. However, other good choices are M&K, Rel, and Bag End.

I would stay with the 122c center channel. I can't stress the importance of voice or timbre matching all your speakers.

How would a 122c/52 front/42 rear/ hsu VTF-3 setup sound? Would be driven by my NAD T-763 receiver/ Pioneer 563A DVD player. Room size isn't huge (current Polk Rm-6600 setup doesn't strain- unless really pushed). Am I giving anything up by not going with towers up fron (say 72's etc.)? I like not having the bigger boxes up front- but if I am going to spend the money- I don't want to sacrafice performance. (btw- 80% home theater/tv / 20% music (rock))

Does this system compare to a more 'traditional' tower/sat setup - ala- PSB (Image 5T/ 9C/ 2B surround)? (which is on sale now)

Getting ready to upgrade - any help would be appreciated!!!
