Living room is 22' by 32', hardwood floors, very open space and 100% HT use. It is very important to him to be able to hear voices/dialogue in shows and movies. I plan on setting him up with Denon 1613 and either BIC PL200 or HSU sub.
I was going to set him up with Cambridge S30s but I think he may need more than that and he is wanting to get the best he can (without spending multiple thousands...). So, I was looking to find bookshelf speakers for anywhere around $500-$800 (but I think I can talk him into more pretty easily). I know klipsch is a highly regarded brand and I've seen a few mentions of Ascend Acoustic Sierra-1. What would you recommend? And, what corresponding center speaker would go with your recommendation? (cost of center speaker not included within bookshelf budget).
Thanks in advance for any input.
