This is my current setup:
Pioneer VSX-921-K 7.1
Front Speakers: Cambridge S30
Centre : Cambridge S50
Sub: NXG NX-BAS-500C
REAR SURROUND: Paradigm OM-100
REAR: Onkyo SKB 570
My room size is about 16 x 20
I am thinking about purchasing the Cambridge S70 to replace the front S30 speakers. I would then use the S30 for the rear surround to replace the Paradigm. I would then either use the Paradigm for the rears or scrap the rear speakers & just go with the 5.1 setup.
My other thought is just stay with my current setup. Maybe even just scrap the Onkyo's and go with the 5.1 setup.
My real question is for another $300 for the S70's am I gaining much? Are the towers really necessary with my Sub or is the Sub sufficient?
Does anybody have any thoughts/opinions on this. For the price of the Cambridge S70 am I really gaining much for sound quality? Please respond. All comments welcome.
