I can get LX16 speakers for $200 for my home theater. Is that a nice speaker for the price and will it sound good paired with denon 2113? I was also thinking maybe also an lx16 for the center. the only thing i don't like is that they kind of are deep. wouldn't that tend to look ugly even if i put them on the stand in my theater room? also is cherry more elegant than black or is it in the eye of the beholder?
just curious, did u get cherry or black. Do they look to deep against the walls? also, how do they sound( they sounded great in magnolia but thats not real world)? The center is killing me too I will look into that motion c from amazon.
magnolia a/v. I guess they weren't selling that well according to sales rep. Remember they are bookshelf so they look a little deep. I just have never used bookshelves on a stand in a home theater and wondered how they look in ppls homes, wife is picky. she also doesn't want black so i was wondering how cherry looks in ppls homes.
Might want to get the Pioneer SC1222K instead. It supports 4 ohm speakers.
I found what I felt was a better route than an expensive receiver:
RX-A800 B-Stock receiver (2 year factory warranty) from One Call for $448 delivered + UPA-500 amp from emotiva for $349 delivered. For $797 I get all the benefits of a receiver with the extra power of a dedicated amp.
Another benefit is that I now have separates that will be easier to upgrade in the future.
How do these lx16 speakers sound? and is $200 each a good great or crappy pice for home theater, they haven't come in yet and i guess i am stuck with black or i can cancel order? i am debating the denon 2113, if it can deliver or I might get a 3x13 receiver o an older denon 3 series, guess i need to do my 4 ohm homework. I like the upscaler for crappy dish receivers. having a separate amp always looks impressive and should most always work better as well.
Best Buy ran the promotion as part of black friday weekend. I suspect they sold them all in a hurry.
I know I had no intention of buying speakers when I walked in there a couple of days after black friday. I have have always wanted MLs, but dismissed the idea as too expensive for now. I was going to get 4 sats and a center from Axiom for about $1200 as an intermediate upgrade until I could afford MLs. But when I ran across the LX16 deal I couldn't pass it up. I wound up getting 4 LX16s and a Motion C center for less than I was going to spend on the Axioms.
So basically I got them in black and cant change color, and now i think i have to get a motion c, they had chalked me up for the new center whatever it was called 15s center for like $500 or something which i was gonna cancel and i think i will be getting a motion c. I love it when a plan comes together.
So how did they sound? was it like goddam thats nice! and u couldn't be happier? let me rephrase it, were you smiling the whole time your were watching knight and day, kinda like a kid that gott candy? or are you still looking for more speaker?
ok, so i am going to get a denon 2113 for sure or 2313. I will havw 4 lx16 and 1 motion 8. i am also going to get a dynamo 300 because i can't wait to listen too music. is the dynamo 300 mega crap? i have a martinlogan abyss that i run at 30% in another setup that is jawdropping base. often times my mom comes from the other side of the house and tries to explain how i am shaking the walls and the foundation is going to crack, give me a break...
i just have to go super budget and want it now on the subwoofer from bestbuy.
Its funny what I say and what I do. I ended up getting the 4 lx16 for $800 new, 1 open box dynamo 700 for $500, 1 motion 8 for $400 normal price, and one open box 2112 for $400. Thats what I bought and brought home. So if anyone wants to chime in on prices and if I got ripped off and should return any of these items. the motion 8 could be swapped for motion c.
