Okay all a few years ago I bought a Sony 60" rear Projection LCD TV. When I did this in my av Station at the house I lost the space I needed and I sold my Klipsch Reference speakers front and rear and sub.
Since I also bought a DA 2300ES (right when they came out) it left me tight on cash, My A/V guy helped me out though not impressed and I went with a set of Paradigm Cinema 110 series. Music never sounded so bad.
Now we just bought a new house and setting up the media for it. I pretty sure Im going with a led/lcd 60" XBR and a DA 5600 ES which is is budgetted in on sell and trade of my existing equipment. Im also going to install a Sonos. But It leaves me low on cash for speakers. Im havent decided if I am going in wall or wall mounted for rear, but the fronts need to be on wall, wall mounted.
I was looking at the Defenitive Tech XTR 40's for thier size but I have read reviews basically stating they sound like crap ( no offense to anyone that has them or loves em). I havent heard them yet.
Im on a budget of about 2K Might be able to slip some more in but not much. They have to be wall mount and eye pleaseing for the wife she hates my A/V stuff more than she hates my Cars (in fact she made me sell my 51 Willy's Wagon when we bought this house the deal was I get to slightly upgrade the AV system)
Okay I guess point blank point me in some directions, I am not impressed with the sound of the Paradigms even those they make other speakers my wife and myself have different tastes in music as well. Think of the wife the likes mellow pop and R&B some old jazz as well, and myself well Im rock and roller with a hillbilly kicked in. You find me cranking Drive by Truckers, Social Distortion or the Clash while Im working on my cars. I guess thats why I liked the raw feeling I got from my Klipsch.
