Maybe the jump to different speakers will be a very small jump and not worth it
There's no way to compare them side by side , my 5.2 and BestBuy speakers


I have considered bowers & wilkins speakers , too

Keep my KG5.2 or buy new ones , that's the question

Advice , please

I realize that this whole hobby is based on very individual preferences, however, I personally have found that huge strides are made in electronics especially... jmho

my stuff:

Harman Kardon AVR 3600

Emotiva XPA-3

OPPO BDP-103

Klipsch RF-82II Mains

Klipsch RC 62II Center

Klipsch SS.5 L&R Surrounds

I still run a pair of Chorus II's. Upgrading/replacing is really up to the individual.

For anyone who has listened to both or who can chime in, what is the case for the RF-7 II over the RP-280F if room size is not a factor.

I am just beginning to toy with the idea of redoing my current setup and am contemplating Klipsch as one of the options I am looking at.

I listen to music about 70% of the time and watch movies about 30% of the time.

The plan is to start with the fronts (LCR) and slowly add surround/elevation speakers as I liquidate my current setup.

Not opposed to buying used.

Don't know how many here frequent the Klipsch forum so, for those that don't... I had fun with a "find the Danley" thread... rather than play that game again, I'll just show some shots.

(preface: This room is still under construction, have crown molding to put up, closet doors to hang and I'm sure my wife will find (create?) 3 more tasks for the room before it's considered done)

Here's the back of the room with a pair of LaScalas buried in the wall

Oh, there it is.

Getting rid of a ventless fireplace (the metal one) and making a masonry "fire box" for it to make it look better, I noticed that we had some dead air space above. I said to the wife, we should put a Danley in there and.....she said OK! You will see in the pictures it JUST BARELY fits (with like 1/8" to spare on top).

It was pure luck. Space was NOT designed for it. It was truely a fortunate happenstance.

pulled the grill off the speaker. Mounted speaker. then took a piece of plywood (instead of drywall) as a false "wall" and routed a hole in it to accept the speakers grill.

Also made the bottom half of the mantle removable with 4 screws so I have access to the door on the Danley in case I ever need access to the woofers.

My wife did 99% of this as I had recently had shoulder surgery and had a dead arm in a sling. (just came out of it last week)

My First Set Of Speakers

I can't wait!
Vicious I'm just getting into this hobby and looking into the klipsch RP's. I was thinking of getting the RP-280 Ebony system listed on klipsch. I was going to buy speakers separately throughout the next year, divide the cost up a bit. This system has (2) RP-250S instead of (2) RP-150M. Would you say the RP-150M would be better suited as rears than the RP-250S? Or which other klipsch speakers do people here like for rears? Looking into 5.1 system for now.

Thanks for the help!
