Upgrading my system.
 
Right now I use 4 dayton b652's and a 50$ dayton center with a dayton sub 1200.

Keep in mind I currently use 30$/pair speakers but they did get rave reviews awhile ago, but i'm certain any of these would be a upgrade correct?

I've been thinking of some certain upgrades. Right now I use a RX V467 YPAO Yamaha reciever, this reciever probably pushes 30-50w per channel even though it says 100w per channel.

Def techs 450 + 350's for 500 and the 2002 clr center for 150 for a total of 650. I can put 500 of this on 1 year credit no payments no interest (I like using credit as im trying to build my score up from 720)

5 Ascend CBM 170's (500-600$ would try to get them used)

Cambridge S70+S50 center with S30 as surrounds, 400-500$

HTD Level 3's and a HTD center for 500$ (would have to deal with the dayton b652's as surrounds for now)

A Pioneer set consisting of 2 sp fs 52 floorstanders, SP C22 center and 2 SP BS 22 surrounds for a total of 383$, with this combo I would get a second subwoofer such as another dayton sub 1200 or a dayton sub 1500.

All these speakers are high sensitivity excepts the pioneers being 85db-88db.


Thoughts? What else could I get. and is my reciever good enough?


If my reciever needs upgrading I could get a denon avr e400 or something as such in the 100-200$ range, I know i'm stretching my budget but I have 2k or so in computer upgrades to do this year but i still want a good home theater to last 3-5years.

If this is mainly for movies spend more on subs and less on speakers.






what is the total amount for your system ?

How big is your and what are your listening preferences.

I'm 90% home theater and room size is 22x15, but the room is very very open to the dining room so if you add that its 22x23 and ceilings are 9ft high or so

Definitive, or HTD are 2 good options - just a matter of preference

If you can find used Ascends - then that would also be another good choice

I actually love the HTD look but there pretty expensive, with the definitive I could buy 2 450's and 2 350's right now but i'd have to get one of the centers currently on craigslist. I do indeed like the HTD's and ascends though just a matter of price.


I'm hoping something good will pop up in the classified sections.
