I have been reading threads for days now to help decide what speakers I should look at and I'm just not getting anywhere. So many options. So I'm coming for help. I'm open to suggestions from anyone willing to help, but also if anyone has a similar setup for the same price range, that would be helpful to know about!
Here is my current setup:
Denon 3312CI - Receiver
Klipsch RW-12D - Sub
Athena AS-F1.2 - Fronts
Athena AS-C1 - Center
Athena AS-R1.2 - Surrounds
The 3312CI and RW-12D are new and now I'm looking to replace the Athenas. I can spend about $2000. I have a room that's 18x20 and opens to a breakfast nook. It's for about 40% music, 40% movies and 20% TV. Unfortunately here in Lexington there aren't any good places to go listen to speakers. I tried at Best Buy a few times, but I couldn't get a single person to help me so I could listen. So all I have to go on is advice from you experts:-) Right now I'm just looking for Fronts, Centers and Surrounds like I have now. So my final will be 5.1. With a good sub, do I need towers? Is my sub good enough not to need towers? I'm fine getting towers, I like the look of them, so all recommendations are welcome. Also, is $2000 enough or should I wait a few months and increase that?
I was looking at maybe Polk RTI 12 and whatever would go well as a Center and Surrounds. However, I think I have more room in my budget than that and I have no clue how much better than my Athenas those are. I'm guessing quite a bit. I read that there are lots of options with more bang for your buck than the Polks, so I'm very interested to hear about them:-)
Please help me with any recommendations, it will really be appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance!!
