What do you like about yoursetup.What stand's out most in your home theater setup the most.I been trying my best to save up the cash and buying a PB13-Ultra.I might just wait till winter time.Because i got alot of other thing's to do before the big beast show's up at my door step lol.and like you said and i agree with you the klipsch RF-7 II AND EVEN THE CENTER RC-64 II.Give off a really epic amount of nice bass,So that being said i might just buy my surround first then the PB13-Ultra last.We will see.I been saveing up the cash for about 5 or more month's now.I just been busy with paying bill's and student loan's.and i work a minmum wage job at the moment trying to get back into school.So yeah life get's in the way of my passion and more of a hobbie of home theater
We have similar receivers your receiver is like my Denon X4000. Like you said Klipsch speakers are very easy to drive so in your case external amp will be last thing on the list ( at least for me). If I'm you I will get first surrounds and then sub all before external amp. Surrounds is definitely very important add to the HT system so as a good sub.
In your case I will get surrounds sooner then sub, it is cheaper and your towers can do fine without sub for some time.But maybe you will find a good deal on sub and all can change quickly
It is hard to tell what stand's out most. If I watch action movie or listen Rock music subs stand's out for sure. On other movies when is not that much bass used 5 speaker set is nice to have. I like whole thing as package, definitely dual SVS sub are a huge Plus so i don't need to push any bass from towers. Whole package now match perfect!!!!
I'm still looking in future to add front heights and another surrounds pair, so I will need some extra amp.
I like (EmotivaXPA-3) it will do nice work with 3 main speakers. I want to hook it to my towers and center and then rest of the speakers will drive Denon.
Cheaper option will be to have extra amp just for maybe front heights and rest driven from receiver but I like idea of Emotiva XPA-3 to drive towers and center more, not sure if will give me any benefits or not.
But for now I'm set only if I will see some good deal I will jump on it but some other things needs to be done first before my HT will grow more
