Hi everyone

I am the proud owner of the following setup:

- Pioneer SC-LX90 AV

Speakers: Monitor Audio RX8 (Front); RX6 (Back); RXCLR (Center) and RX-W12 (Sub).

However the speakers that were always in my mind were the Pioneer EX Series....i've read also a few reviews comparing these to the B%W 800 Gold Series.

I have my setup in a rectangular Home Theater Room (6 meters by 5 Meters) and i have an offer from my dealer to trade my Monitor Audio for the Pioneer for the following setup:

Speakers: Pioneer S-3EX; S-4EX, S-8EX, SW250S

THE DEAL: I MUST PAY 8000 EUROS + MY SPEAKERS THAT AR IN BRAND NEW CONDITION.

My doubts are many....Will i notice a bid diference?

The RX-W12 Monitor Audio Sub is a 500Watts with 1000Watts peak, i feel like the Pioneer S250S will be a "dead" sub compared to mine....

Any good advices?

Tank you

If you are going to spend that kind of money, the Vandersteen Quatro is a MUCH better speaker, which comes with an integral setup system for tuning the integral subwoofer and system to the room.

Vandersteen also has the complementary speakers for the rest of the system.

Another system that would be superior IMO would be the Dynaudio Focus 340, 210, and 160.

Tank you for your opinion.
I would like something with quality but with good appearance....no ofense.

I love how the Pioneer look, B&W...etc...

A dealer also offered me a full set of Klipsch THX Ultra II for 5000 Euros, it's a great price, but i really don't know the level of quality of these speakers...
