I dont think my receiver can put out the power the speakers need. Then they pretty much tried to get me to upgrade my whole system. With your guys honest opinion. What do you think my best options are? Am I better off re-ordering the 60's from newegg that are on sale for $100 a piece. Or is there something else better. My budget is $400-$500.
Well, first off, HK receiver's real power is more than its rated. 75w of HK is more like 110~130w of other brands.
Newegg is out of the 60s. But they have plenty of JBL Studio 1 180, 190 towers at low prices. JBL always mates well with HK.
