Hello all, I have been playing with the idea of changing out my HT setup. I currently have a Yamaha RX-V665 A/V Receiver with av123 rocket RS450 signature series fronts, RSC200 bigfoot center, and some ELT525 monitors for the rears. Center is great, never had a complaint about it and love the highs and mids of the 450's, but always felt the low end lacked regardless of EQ. I am in a slightly bigger place now and want some more volume out of my front stage and have been toying with the idea of swapping out either the whole system or just the front stage or maybe even just the left and right fronts.
My living room is 15' 6" x 20' with 9' ceilings. watching/listening is along the 15'6" and the couch is pretty much right against the wall. This will be primarily for a HT so TV and movie watching mostly, with occasional music. From some preliminary research I was looking at the Polk Audio TSi500 or the BIC Acoustech PL-89 or KEF Q700's, Definitive technologies BP10B, etc.... I dont want to go much higher than $1500, but am a little flexible. Would my budget allow for an upgrade from what I currently have or should I just stick with what I have? If so, any other suggestions for speakers would be much appreciated, thanks!
