Been lurking for a while as I have always wanted to get a nice setup, but alas still finishing school so budget is tight.
I wanted to get some feedback on a deal I found locally. First of all, is it a bad idea to buy speakers used? I checked and cerwin-vega seems to get a decent rep and also has a 5yr warranty on these speakers. So in essence I would still be covered 3-4 years. what should i be check ing for?
I found an add for a cerwin-vega system wiht cmx26 fronts, cmx5 back, cmx25c center adn cmx10s subwoofer. The backs weren't even installed as the guy still has them in the box. The speakers are paired with a pioneer vsx-821 for roughly 700$ which is within my budget. From what I saw for that amount it is hard to get a full 5.1 with receiver new that would be as good as this system.
The pioneer receiver isn't all that great but seems to get overall positive reviews but i can't seem to find much on the speakers themselves.
I wanted to see if some of the experts could tell me what to expect as to the pairing of the speakers and the receiver.
Also anything else you guys can suggest would be appreciated,
