First time posting, but I've always turned to these forums for advice on home theatre information.
I'm finally able to afford some nice speakers, and wanted some insight. I was debating between these two options:
A) save some money and go with the Pioneer SP-PK52FS, and then buy a subwoofer (no clue which one yet).
B) not care about 5.1, and just splurge on a set of Ascend Acoustics, either the Sierra-1's or the Sierra Towers (if is truly worth it, which seems like it). I would likely then hold off on getting a subwoofer, which isn't ideal anyway as I live in an apartment on the top floor. I would feel ok about dropping that much on the towers if they are good enough to still be excellent in 5-7 years from now, since the idea would be to buy for the long term and add onto my setup.
The receiver I would use is a Denon AVR-4308-CI. Would that work, or would that by a big bottleneck to getting ideal sound from these speakers?
Thanks for all your assistance. I'm a video guy, and audio has always been a bit of unknown territory for me. Any help would rock. Thanks!
