Due to the configuration of our living room and budget requirements, upgrading our current home theater "stereo" setup has some interesting constraints. The new Pioneer Kuro sound is emitting from an Optonica receiver and a pair of KEF speakers. Yep: both are 30 years old and -- to my ear -- sound remarkable. But perhaps I can do/hear better.
Say we keep the KEFs. Adding ANY other channel will require a new receiver (suggestions welcome) but my question concerns which should come first: a center channel speaker or a subwoofer. As it stands, these old KEF's disperse bass that actually shakes the paintings on our walls, but Magnolia is telling me that a sub will add a LOT more than a center would.
Who has faced down this dilemma and would like to provide me with lots of fee advice?
Thanks and happy listening!
