    So I take it the Imagine X line is between the Imagine and Image lines? So I could buy the Imagine tower with two woofers and dome tweeter for $2,000 a pair or the Imagine X with the same drivers for $1,000 a pair. We will have find out how they compare in the lineup.

    It looks like it a more affordable for HT rather than 2ch audio. I wonder if it is replacement for the B4's, 5 and 6's, etc.

    Wish PSB had gotten rid of that weird channel running down the center of the front baffle. I liked the Image series much better than the Imagines value-wise so I hope they didn't muck around too much with a good thing.

    A good speaker is a good speaker and I disagree with the labelling of an HT speaker verses a 2 channel speaker. I chose PSB because they make great speakers and are equally good for HT and 2 channel. I would not purchase speakers that are a one trick pony.

    I am not dissing PSB. I have a pair of the B6's and I love the Synchrony line. PSB makes speakers that just plain sound good. I was just commenting that they appear to be making them more affordable.

    It wasn't my intention to come across defensive about PSB. I just don't understand the concept of a HT made speaker verses a 2 channel speaker. In my mind's eye, a competent speaker will be good in both applications. Mind you, its easier to reconcile accuracy for a musical instrument compared to that of an explosion or the transformers transforming :) . Because of that, I chose speakers that were musically accurate knowing that same accuracy would be applied to HT despite not knowing how a transformer transforming really sounds like.
