Quality speakers, at least in the US, are so inexpensive, (think Q Acoustics 2000 or 3000 series), that buying new might not be that much more than shipping speakers that may have undergone temperature swings from freezing to 150+ degrees Farenheit in an attic.
Mind you, auto speakers do that and manage to survive so who knows.
I settled down in Japan, but the market for speakers seems different from Europe.
I actually checked some prices online and I didn't expect were so cheap compare to 17 years ago! Which is obvious... I am behind with this things for a while...
Is the Q Acoustics 2000/3000 series a good choice for music/movies? How is the quality compare to my current speakers? The 5.1 set in UK is not expensive at all, but I don't know if I can find it here.
I have seen a lots of Yamaha, Onkyo and Sony speakers in the stores maybe I should check I professional shop if I found one:

The 902i's are supposed to be just a bit better, but they are hard to find here in the US. If you're in Europe, the 905c should be found for a song. Always a bunch on ebay/europe. But it's not quite as good as the 902's. Always sounded a bit thin to me. But it may sound fine to you.
After a very long search/wait, I finally found and bought a pair of Mordaunt Short Aviano 6's. Just about perfect tonal balance for me and my room. Now the hunt is on for an Aviano center. I wish more ebay/europe sellers would ship to the US.
Anyway, hook up what you've got and see if they sound good to you. If not, then start changing out the offending pieces. BTW, most MS speakers are pretty well built so I bet they survived hibernation quite well.
I loved the MS902 and I really loved my setup years ago, but at this point since the prices are not that bad, I am thinking to sell everything and buy new speakers?
