I also just bought the Denon 3312 and am looking for speakers but have a bit more to spend. I currently have Snell bookshelf speakers, surrounds and center (which I've not been completely happy with a far as movie/TV dialogue) and am going to move those into my bedroom and replace the entire system in my den. It's a big room with high ceilings, wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows (no curtains) on one wall. I'm pretty sure I want to stick with bookshelves because I have a lot of well-placed bookshelves and don't want speakers standing on the floors (this is not a dedicated home theater). I know I need to go audition some speakers, but here's what's been recommended so far and I'd like opinions of these various speakers with that receiver and in a room of that sort from anyone who would care to opine:
Martin Logan Motion LX-16 Front speakers, ElectroMotion FX2 Rears/brackets, Motion SLM Center, Dynamo 300 compact subwoofer
Wharfedale Jade 3 Front speakers, Jade SR Rears/brackets, Jade C2 Center, and Velodyne Chrysalis 6.5" 180WATT 8" small subwoofer 10"X 10"X 12"
I've also looked at the Klipsch RB-81 II Bookshelf Speakers with a G28 center, RS-52 II Surround Speakers, and SW-311 Subwoofer. I really like how those look (yes, I'm a girl), but didn't get much interest in those when I mentioned them to the only installer I've gotten a bid from so far.
I don't know much about speakers, and would like to learn more, but don't have enough time to really research the entire subject the way I'd like. So, any opinions would be much appreciated.
