This kind of stuff normally gets beat to death but I'm going to do it anyways.
I have a Denon AVR-1712 with 2 Polk Monitor 60 IIs as L/R and a CS1 Center. I also just picked up a Klipsch RW-12d.
My wife and I are hoping we'll be closing on a house middle of June, it already appraised and we have the inspection tomorrow.
I've been pretty happy with the Polks but with the new house comes new furniture and of course I need to upgrade the speakers...right?
So, I was looking for suggestions in the price range of $1200 for the L/R/C + 2 surrounds. The living room is large and opens to the kitchen and dining room so it's certainly not ideal but it make my wife happy.
I've been reading the forum for a couple of days now and read good things about the Ascend CMT-340s. Priced them for L/R and a 340 center, plus 2 CBM-170s, with stands and wall mounts right at $1200 (B-Stock items). I could also do Aperion Intimus 4T towers, 4C, and 4Bs, with wall mounts right at $1085.
I'd like to get people's thoughts on these as well as other suggestions for some new speakers at or below $1200.
