    I initially purchased the cs9040 but upgraded to the cs9060. It had a powered sub for more range that is noticeable with movies with a lot of dialog. I'm running it from a denon x4500h. Next purchase will be the 9060 towers to match because this center channel will over run any lower model speaker. Can't wait until my system is complete. It's expensive but when it's complete I'll have no need to upgrade.

    I initially purchased the CS9040 and was a bit underwhelmed with my upgrade from a 12 year old Klipsch center channel speaker. Kept it a couple of weeks listening to a variety of source materials both music and movies but it left me longing for the WOW factor. Don't get me wrong, the improvement is noticeable but just not worth the $400 price tag in my opinion. Told myself If I'm paying that much for a CS anyway, I might as well be happy with it and and not have remorse of what could have been so I gave the CS9060 a try. Happy to say that the difference is amazing! Dialogues are clearer and crisper than the 9040 and the subtle rumble that comes out of the speaker from characters with deeper voice is present and much more defined. Something a dedicated sub woofer won't catch. The speaker sounds so clear that I actually had to stick my ear close to the front L/R speakers to check if dialogues are bleeding in to them but it's all the 9060 producing it. I was also afraid the built in sub was an overkill to my set up but it nicely complimented my decicated sub woofer. It provides a wider soundstage for the bass that's room filling regardless of listening position. It's currently hooked up to a Denon AVR3300 and paired with Infinity Reference towers. Unfortunately the timber between speakers is noticeably different so I ended up upgrading them to the BP9040s as well and together they sound fantastic! All in the CS9060 is a good investment if you're not getting what you need from your CS but a word of caution to the budget conscious...it will make you want to upgrade the rest of your speakers once you hook this baby up to a non-DT set up.
