It's time to upgrade and I would really appreciate some knowledgeable real-world advice. I'm not looking to blast these and rattle the walls because I am a good neighbor
I do an equal amount of day (uncompressed audio) and night (compressed audio) so I need something that sounds good at both low and mid volume levels for both movies and music.
This budget is flexible by no more than $200 and includes 5 (upgradeable to 7) surround + sub.
Samsung 55 3D TV
In order of preference
1. small 'lifestyle" minimalist wall hangers
2. small speakers on stands
3. ? unknown choices/options
4. medium speakers wall/stands
5. "full size" floor speakers
Mix and match o.k. I am not loyal to any brand
Music kind - all.
movie kind - all.
So, any kind souls willing to offer advice? You will have my undying gratitude*
*Gratitude subject to terms and conditions and based on buyers remorse after purchase and finding the exact same speakers on sale for $20 less somewhere else...etc. etc.
