I thought about going with that set up, but where I auditioned them they didn't sound good at all. I was disapointed because I hear the B25's with the C60 center and it sounded good, but had to go to a different store to hear the T55's. I ended up going with JM-Lab Cobalt 816 S's & CC 800 s.

The above low budget system sounds good to me. I think they sound like Sonus Faber. Don't laugh. It may be yet another illustration of "you hear what you expect to hear".
Seriously the BA speakers sound natural and balanced. Perhaps it's that I like Advents and the original KLH speakers.
Oh by the way, since others are posting their video, I may as well include my InFocus 4805 projector & low budget 27" Magnavox tube TV. Man the Magnavox is still going strong after 10 years. I remember my previous Magnavox did not last that long.
Oh yeah, I have Energy C-1 speakers powered by Harman Kardon receiver in the bedroom.

Here's my low budget setup.I have 4 jbl L100's running on a yamaha ax700 and 2 dahlquist dq10's with klipsch 12" woofers,2 klipsch kg4's,2 jbl e50's and 2 jbl j350a's to fill in the sound on another ax700 soon to change to a yamaha m60 with a yamaha c2 preamp. Using 16guage landscape lighting cable for speaker wire . .A real solid wall of sound.Excellent imaging and with the power up bass shakes the house like an earthquake.I find no need for a subwoofer.Not for the fainthearted.
I have a very "humble" system, ahem, but for the price I paid for them, I am satisfied.
I have Quest loudspeakers, QT66 fronts, QC5 center, QB6 rears, and a QS1011 sub.
I got them for roughly half price from a "big box" store up here in Canada.
All total, I paid around $450 Canadian. However the sub quickly gets overwhelmed at higher volume watching DVDs. So I bought an athena AS-P6000 on sale for $399 and I must say that for the price, am happy.
I won't pretend that Quest speakers are HI-FI, or even MID-FI, but they do a reasonable job. Of course, I would like to have more esoteric speakers, but for 4 times the price, or more, that would be a hard justification. (At least for quite some time).
Driving them is a Panasonic SA-HE75 AVR.
That's one for us "modest" system owners.
I've recently purchased a complete 5.1 Energy C-Series set-up. Very nice form and function (especially for the price).
I'm very impressed with construction quality and materials, and of-course sound.
I hoping to see other posts for users with new C-Series out there. I mostly see previous (and current) Conisseur Series (ie. C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, etc.,..).

I've had all of this since the late 80's except the 30W100's, thinking about upgrading to KEF IQ9, IQ6C & IQ3 for the rears. Going to Russound R12DT (2) for the subs. Going to upgrade everything else too, to keep up with PJ.
I have a lot of audio equipment to sell. I have 2 sets of speakers : B@W Matrix model #80311B and B@W Matrix 80311B . My question is this: Where can I go to find out what a 'fair' selling price would be? I also have McIntosh power amplifier 350wpc Model MC352, and Conrad Johnson Premier fourteen preamplifier. My husband died a year ago and this was his love and hobby - I don't know anything about audio and don't know how to price it. Any responses will be deeply appreciated
