What's the difference between the klipsch 5.1 ultras and the non-ultras? Are the ultras THAT much better?

The Ultras replaced the non-Ultras.

As far as I know, the only changes were:

-- higher quality amplifier (previous ones gave out alot)
-- drivers painted white instead of black
-- new horizontal volume control box instead of vertical

Some other changes may have been made, but I am unaware of them.

The Ultra or non-Ultras are great values though, both as stand alone sets and for upgrades. The subwoofer apparently is comparable to the RW-8 (although with slightly less bracing), which alone is a $250 product. In addition to a great sub you get a powerful satellite amplifier built into the subwoofer (not available in most stand alone subs), and a few decent sateliites. The only downfall is that the sub itself has no variable low-pass filter or phase control.

Uh...I listed the differences...

I mean, the real question is, why are you asking us if its worth the extra $100? I mean if I told you to buy a Bose Acoustimass system because it was worth it, would you do it?
