I have XS separates with Neat Motive SX1s and I think it's a cracking combination. It's stopped me thinking about the next upgrade for quite some time which has to be a good thing.
Glad to hear it WRC. How do you find the bass with the Sx1's? For most things mine seem well controlled and balanced. My room is 16'x12' narrowing to 10'
I am reading good things about Tellurium q speaker cables. I think I will give these a try as by all accounts they improve separation and sound stage.
