A little info about myself: I am currently in school for an advanced degree with several years left and I don't honestly foresee myself living in anything but within an apartment setting for the next couple of years. As such, I was interested in purchasing these as more of an item for 'future needs' (they would be in their boxes at my parents' house until then). I would by no means consider myself on any magnitude an audiophile, but I do appreciate nice luxuries and I don't mind applying my student-level (read: loan money) budget to quality items/ purchases. I would be using this set for home theatre purposes and casual listening of various musical genres.
Common sense says that technology items are rarely future-proof but I've read that a quality audio rig is an exception to that logic. Again, I have no experience in the world of audiophilia and I don't really expect to get bit by the upgrade bug (as evidenced by other personal interests). Long story short
, is this a good purchase on a cost:quality ratio and worth my monies, or would something cheaper/in the future/not this better suit my needs? Genuine thanks all in advance for your replies.
