Primus 150 Competitors?

Hi All,
I'm auditioning a set of Primus 150s ($100 for the set) and they sound good to my untrained ear, but I'm very new to audio. Actually, I'm re-newed since I made a set of sealed floor standers 15 years ago that I'm still using.

Although I have read some great reviews of th Primus 150s, I haven't seen it compared to many others. Unfortunately, it was not in the budget bookshelf comparision. I'd love to hear from anyone who has compared them side-by-side with other bookshelf speakers. So, is there anything out there as good for the price or double the price? Also, I would prefer a slightly smaller package, say 11 inches if possible.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

cheers,
mark

Re: Primus 150 Competitors?

thank you Cliff. Actually, the Reina review is what made me look at these speakers in the first place. I'm hoping to hear from some people who have used them in home and have other speakers that they can compare to. Reading through the forums I hear a lot about brands I am unfamilar with like Bic, Epos, Paradigm, and Atmos if I'm remembering correctly. I'd like to know if people have done side-by-sides with any of their products in a similiar size and price range, or maybe $300 max.

Actually, I would look at and listen to the Infinity Primus 160 for $125 a pair and match them with an Infinity PS-10 or PS-12 subwoofer for $180 or $240 respectively and enjoy. Pretty good sound for the money.

Re: Primus 150 Competitors?

Greetings,

I would say try the Primus 160's also ....... but one thing I've been wondering about the Primus in general : Yes..... they sound good ...... but I do wonder about their durability . They're probably no better/no worse than any other lower priced line ..... but I do wonder .

You might look at the Onix x-ls also http://www.av123.com/products_product.php?section=speakers&product=82.1
They will be shipping with grills now also, as I was told today from them . Here's review I found too : http://www.audioholics.com/productreviews/loudspeakers/Onixxlsp1.php

I can't believe how low cost speakers keep getting better..... well ..... yes I can .... with most of them being made in Bula Bula or some corner of the world

-Good Day, Garth
