I purchased a new house with my girlfriend which does not have a dedicated media room so I have decided to downsize my equipment a bit but at the same time upgrade in quality.
Currently I have the following:
Front LR: Bic America Dv64 6.5 Tower Speaker
Center: BIC America DV-62CLRS
SR: BIC Venturi DV32-B
Sub: Dayton Audio SUB-100 HT
I know it's a pretty entry level system but it has served me fine for now. I am looking to replace the floor-standings with bookshelf or smaller fronts and hopefully a matching smaller center. I will be buying in-ceiling surrounds since there are french doors behind the sofa. I will either keep the existing sub, if I can find a place for it, or not use one at all.
After doing some research I came up with the following. Please let me know what you think. Budget is 500-600 but less would be great!
Front LR: EMP Tek E5Bi Bookshelf
Center: EMP Tek E5Ci Center Channel Speaker
SR: Polk Audio RC60i
I was also wondering if thePolk Audio Blackstone TL3 were a good option. Thanks!
The EMPtek bookshelfs are very good and will be AS GOOD as anything in that price!
