    CDT or Crystal

    I am just wondering, what component would be better for the money, and therefore any component around the $150 range (Not $230 range).

    So I am wondering what is a better set?

    CDT 61a Classic

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=1090

    or

    Crystal SSCS6?

    Or any other component set in the $150 range?

    Thanks.

    Re: CDT or Crystal

    I have not heard either of the sets you are asking about, but I have been happy with my CDT EF61's. When I was resaerching it seemed that people that had heard both sets thought the EF's were well worth the extra $25 -30.

    Bought mine from djdilliodon - he is an authorized dealer and he shipped very fast.

    Re: CDT or Crystal

    i am using the cl61a and can not be happier with the quality and sound they offer as well as the power they handle. IMO i would go with the Cdt all the way

    Re: CDT or Crystal

    Not trying to sharpshoot at all, but what do you mean by livelier?

    I hear that term used, but i am not sure what it is supposed to express.

    I tend to associate the term "livelier" more toward the side of the scale that leads into "bright" and ultimately "harsh." (which some prefer)

    I tend to associate "laid back" or "natural" with a more accurate production.
    (which others prefer)

    I prefer a warm sound opposed to a Harsh sound.

    Re: CDT or Crystal

    Re: CDT or Crystal

    Now that i think about it, I heard some MB's one time and I did not like them very much. However, you probably do not need to put too much stock into that because it was on a soundboard and not installed in a car. Furthermore, I will readily admit that Audiolife has a ton more experience than I do and I respect his opnion.

    Having said that, I really would look into the CDT Ef's. They have served me well. IMO, they sound very good with the type music I prefer to listen to -- Dave Mathews and the ilk.

    It seems to me that speakers seem to go in and out of favor on these forums. when I was looking before, it seemed CDT's were very popular. Now, not so much. You probably will not see many saying that they are bad. More often you will see them described as "unimpressive" or "unspectacular." To me, they are very solid and "natural." Maybe I am wrong, but I really don't think that there are speakers that are that much better in the under $200 range.

    However, you might also want to research OZ Audio Vectors. They can be found cheap and I have seen some good reviews. Have not heard them myself.

    Audiolife, what do you think of the vectors?

    What do you think of the SSCS6's?

    I know the euro fits are around $200 and I did not want to go that high. Thanks for the recommendation though...everyone

    Sorry, can't help you there.

    Oh, and Audiolife, please don't think that I was trying to imply that you personally were bandwaggon jumping. Not the case at all.

    And kicker, I would recommend just sending a pm to djdilliodon and asking what your cdt options are under $200. Before I bought from him I did search and found nothing but good reports.
