I am looking to upgrade my home theater with a new front sound stage. I am looking spend $4000 and am looking for very dynamic sound for movies. NOW, here is the kicker, I also am upgrading my amplifer and would love to have speakers that are exceptional for 2 channel listening or for multichannel listening. I have a friend who sells Montana and has a set of SP3s that really sound good for 2 channel. I would have to get a custom made center to match it. I can get an amazing deal on these since they are phased out ot the lineup for Montana.
What do you guys think would be the best combo available? I really would like to have nice sounding, stand alone left/rights. I have thought about Philharmonics, looked into Paradigm, Salk, Ascend Acoustics, and several others. RBH had some nice sounding theater packages.
I know I am missing a ton of quality speaker manufacturers hence my request for ideas. Any advice you all could give would appreciated. By the way, the rest of my equipment consists of: Arcam AVR300, Kef Q70 surounds, Panny BD55k blueray, and soon to be an Emotiva XPA3 for the front speakers OR an XPA2 for the front L/R and let the Arcam handle the rest.
