I am getting a new receiver (Onkyo TX-NR809) so I am looking to update some older speakers and go to 7.1 sound by adding front highs.
I currently have 5.1 running:
Pioneer SP-FS51-LR (fronts)
Pioneer SW-8 (sub)
Cambridge Soundworks MC300 (center)
Cambridge Soundworks S300 dipole/bipole (surrounds)
So I am looking to upgrade the center channel, surrounds, and add front highs. I am looking to spend less than $500
I think I have looked so much I am at a loss on which way to go. Of course I want the best sound for the money but also keep the speakers as small as possible.
Here are some I looked at:
Energy take classic 5.0
Klipsch Quintet 5.0
I have also looked at getting the Pioneer SP-C22 (center channel) to match the Pioneer towers and then get the backs and high fronts separate. However, this gets more expensive than my other options
I have a pretty small room - 15x13 room, sit straight on at about 13ft. About 8 foot ceilings
Any suggestions, preferences, best way to go....help in general
