My wife and I just moved into a new house and our old speaker setup is no longer working. I'm looking for recommendations for a decent 5.0 setup that my wife will approve of.
My current setup:
B&W DM-602 mains (on stands), CC2 center, Ascend CBM-170's as surrounds, and a smaller SVS subwoofer. Used for 50/50 music/movies.
Flaws in the current system:
1. My wife thinks the speakers are too large and noticeable (all black in an all-white room).
2. There are windows on either side of the TV, so the speakers are either right next to the TV (too close for stereo imaging) or in the corners... behind some chairs.
I'm hoping to find some svelte speakers that sound on-par with my current setup. Wall-mounting is a plus, and getting them in white (to match the walls) is also a plus. The room is on the large side3500 cubic feet with lots of reflective surfaces. I bought most of the speakers used for around $1000 total, so my wife thinks that should be our budget.
Does anybody have any suggestions? My local dealer carries Paradigm and Definitive, and he recommended the Cinema 220s/330s and the ProCinema speakers; would these be good options?
