I'm a newbie when it comes to audio and am looking for some advice on upgrading my current setup. I have a Denon 1713 receiver, the Energy RC Micro set of speakers, and a Polk PSW 505 sub. My living room is about 13'x13', but opens into the kitchen and dining room. I think the sound is pretty good, but have been offered a pair of CB-5's at a good price and was wondering if they are worth it. Will they be much better than the micros? Will my micro center still be sufficient?
I'm limited on size of speakers because my TV sits atop a corner fireplace shelf. Of course I put as large of a tv as I could up there, so I'm limited on the size of the front speakers and center channel. The CB-5's are probably as big as I'd want sitting up next to the TV. In terms of the center channel, the micro center is 3.5" tall, and already starting to infringe on the bottom of the tv. I'd likely want to stay no taller than 4" on the center if it was thought that I should upgrade. I'd likely keep the micro surrounds as they are mounted on the walls, and aren't too bad.
I'm open to any thoughts you guys have
