The Omegas are a great speaker for the money. I had B&W 602s and the omegas are in another class. There seems to be tons of great speakers out there. Likely i will move on to another brand, but up to this point i have truly enjoyed my time with these speakers, and i highly recommend you audition them. But be careful to match with right equipment.

The emberglows were my first cable upgrade from regular monster cable, so i won't be able to help much. all i can say is they were a very satisfying upgrade from mass-produced cable. I really like the vh audio power cord and digital cable, i think i might try their IC as my next cable upgrade. Plus it looks like they are well spoken of looking thru these forums.
Hi Pawlowski I sit about 7 feet from my speakers. I feel that is a minimum, personally. I listen to mainly classical, and even then i highly recommend a sub. Omegas lack substantial low end, and the REL provides very musical bass, and also provides extra depth and air, you get a more convincing concerthall presentation. I think its a must for jazz and rock. The crossover is set for the subwoofer so theres minimal overlap of frequencies with the omegas.
Hi Ray, yes, I'm very happy with the REL sub. In my system I have the crossover point set around 45hz, and it integrates very nicely with the omegas. Also seems to have good resale value if I ever want to upgrade. I listen to mostly classical, and some jazz and alternative. there are way too many cable options out there, I think when i finally settle down on a system for the longterm choosing cables will be a big headache!

Yes, the drivers are fostex, rated at 93dB @ 8ohms, other specs are here: http://www.omegaloudspeakers.com/super%203.htm Looks like there's a second version out. I really like the new ebony finish. Also looks like they went down on the price, probably made a compromise between the R version and base version.
