I have an Onkyo ht-s3300 reciever and speakers (5.1). I like the sound but I really want to buy floor standing speakers. I was looking at Sony f-s6000 floor standing speakers for fronts, Sony ss-cn5000 for a center and Sony
ss-B3000 for rears. I am keeping the passive sub that came with the reciever. I was told that I may not be able to use these speakers because they wont sync with the Onkyo reciever, ? I don't know much about audio at all, I really like the Onkyo reciever and passive sub but I want the better speakers. Would the reciever work with the above mentioned speakers? If not, what would you guys reccomend ? cash is in short supply - all the new speakers are only around $350. 6000's are $200.00, center is $75.00 and rears are $75.00 shipping is free. Thanks for any help.

These Pioneer speakers are better

You can power regular speakers like these (or the Sony's) with that receiver just fine. In the future you can cheat the lack of an RCA sub out by adding a sub with speaker level inputs, like this one.

Your receiver wont power it, the sub will just take the signal from the speaker wire.
