Thanks for the replies, after more reading and everything I know about home theatres it definitely seems like if I get better fronts I'm going to need to get a better center. I don't want to have to get towers cause of a lack of space but also aesthetically I find them cumbersome, so looking to get bookshelves but thinking at this point it might be worth me spending my budget on a better center and then buying new fronts to match the center later on.
So what I'm thinking now is that I should keep the take classic setup and replace the center with a JBL LC2 center, I have a hook up that can get it new for me at 250-300$, then in a few months I can eventually invest in the matching JBL L820 for my fronts and can use the remaining 4 take classic satellites to complete the 7.1 setup I eventually want to get to. The plan would be to replace all the take classic speakers at some point but once my fronts and center have been replaced I don't mind waiting a year or 2 to replace the rest.
Any thoughts on this plan? Better to do the center first?
Likes or dislike of the lc2 or l820?
