Hey guys. I have a denon avr-791 receiver currently set up with polk rm6750s in 5.1. I have the opportunity right now however to get 4 pioneer cs-t2100-k speakers. I was just wondering if it was a good idea to hook those up as the fronts and rears to my denon instead (i. E. Will the receiver handle them, will they actually sounds better, ect). Sorry for the dumb question but thanks in advance for any advice. Cheersz

EDIT: I should point out that I have a pioneer HTP-100CR center speaker that I could switch out the polk center for.

It's best for your front left, right, and center to timbre match. Generally, the best way to achieve that is to use three of the same speaker across the front, or a pair of left/right speakers and the matching center created by the manufacturer. It's next to impossible to predict (and highly unlikely) if mixing speaker brands will achieve this.
