I currently have a Denon 891/2311 receiver in a 3.1 setup running PSB T45s and a matching center (C5?). It isn't a very balanced listening room with the TV in the corner, speakers at different heights etc. The room is approximately 13x15 but opens to the kitchen/table area which makes it more like a 13x30 space. I will be adding in wall/in ceiling surrounds in the future as well.
We listen to a mix of music, movies and TV. I don't have super discerning audiophile ear, but I do appreciate listening to the detail in music.
I am looking to move to smaller speakers book shelf speakers to replace the T45s to gain some floorspace back and make the room "look" a little better.
I am considering the Ascent Sierra-1s, Ascent 170s, and PSB B6s. I am leaning toward the Sierra-1, but don't really want to spend the money over the 170s if I am unlikely to see a big difference given my non-ideal configuration. Also given my inexperience in A/V, I am not sure what to expect compared to my current PSB T45 setup.
Any help or recommendations would be much appreciated.
