just starting out some research on possible upgrades from this set that i purchased a few years ago. i think they sound good enough, but never that impressed with the sound for music.
just purchased a Yamaha RX-V871 (still debating whether to keep it or not, but thats a separate thread of course) open box for a decent deal and thinking bout complementing them with a new set of 5.1. in an apt, living room prob 11-12 ft x 15-20 ft (including ktichen space), with about 9-10ft ceilings.
think would like to stick with a somewhat smaller sized set around $4-500. used mostly for the usual, tv, movies, music streamed from pc/pandora.
so any good recommendations on some sets to look at to start??
May be able to stretch for a center now as well, considering been doing a lot more TV/movie watching think it would be worth while. Stick with another def tech center I'm guessing? Have not mixed sets before so new to me.
as it turns out, i dont think i have the room right now for the 350s. having a setup with the procenter 1000/2000 and either 2 fronts of promonitor 800 or 1000 paired with it should still work out fine right?
The dt 350 are about as small as a desktop/bookshelf speaker is. Smaller satellite speakers will have sonic limitations.

Hey bettadaze, got a question to you about your current speakers (pro cinema 60). Were they plenty for your living room? Any positives or negatives that you could share?
Currently they are on sale on the newegg and I am considering buying them as an entry 5.1 system for my home theater.
My room is bit larger than yours, 18'x24' (living+dining) do you think these speakers would be ok for this space?
P.S. my apologies for getting this off topic a bit.
not that im even sure i have them setup in the most efficient manner, but i still think they feel a little under powered for the size of the room. i find the sub sufficient since i do not get as much of an opportunity to listen to music (loud enough to care for the extra bass) or watch too many hd movies these days. basically finding myself wanted to step up since I just got the new receiver.
just got a Denon 2312 open box as well, so playing around with that, to see which one I want to keep.
