I don't know your financial situation or the conditions under which you bought the AVR. My experience has been that dealers will let you return an AVR if you want to trade up.
But again you may be very happy with the sound you get from the Lx-101. I have had two Pioneer Elites; they are solid machines.

In terms of future expansion, you could make a 7.2 (two rear surrounds and two subs), or you could put speakers on your ceiling and create a 5.1.2 system for Dolby Atmos and/or DTS-X.

Personally, I think you have a good start, and if you want to grow your system in the future, you will be able to work your speakers into that expanded system.
Doesnt all Pioneer Elite AVR's have class D amps?

They do from like 2009 and up, but the original ice amps are known to fail... D3 amps are good which I believe is 2011 and up, to be honest, if I was him, I would return the new pioneer elite receiver, and buy a higher end receiver from pioneer that is 2 or 3 years older, that way he could get the flagship ones that cost around 1600-2500, and have just as many features if not more...

I'm just confused with a speaker that is 4 times the price shouldn't there be something big I'd notice? I noticed a great difference moving from the Polk monitor 40 to the rf-82 II, but the same didn't happen with the center, not disappointed in it, but just sort of surprised, glad I have a matching set though lol... maybe I should do A-B-A-B testing
lot of variables:

Are you using Audyssey xt ir better yet X32? I use audyssey pro and with each step up you will notice a difference.

Have you put a laser (measure where tweeter is then put dot on front ave rear, connect dot with laser) on the sides of the center to MLP to be sure center tweeter is at ear height?

Crossover start at 80htz unless audyssey sets it higher (never lower where audyysey sets it).

I prefer these audyssey tweaks

1. DEQ = off
2. DV = OFF
3. Audyssey flat (I have a highly treated room)
4. Tone controls on with +5DB bass (this inky effects mid range bass, not LFE OUTPUT)

I would focus on positioning of center, a 1/8" seriously matters.

I was considering a different sub at first but this was a package deal (speakers only) but as you said nothing is forever and I hope I wont be disappointed with the receiver

Saw the sale on Klipsch speakers just now, how do the RB 61 II compare to the RP 150-M? its a $5 difference currently.

I'm coming from Pioneer BS22LR 5.1 system, will be used 90% for movies and TV. I'm also considering ELAC Debut/Uni Fi System or KEF Q100. I plan to save up for a sub later from SVS. These would be powered by Pioneer SC 63.

If its a big upgrade in quality I will likely buy, but if its only small difference i will wait and save up. I am hoping these speakers would last for at least 5-6 years.

These are going in an apartment fyi so not going to be turned all the way up.

I bought the receiver separately so I can always exchange/return it, it cost me 700CAD which is about 550USD so for about that price (could go higher but only if its a significant improvement) is there anything you'll recommend? looking for something for at least 3-4 years

RB61II will blow them out of the water, especially in bass response. I have 4 of them (2) heights 2 surrounds.

Me personally, I sold my SC-68 because there wasn't a good improvement from the SC-65, but, you could return the receiver u got, if u paid around 550 for it, you could probably get an SC-79 or SC-87 for that price, just have to look on ebay for used ones. It would definitely be an improvement over the one u have, would have more features, and be a better higher powered amp. I got my SC-65 for like 350 or 375 with a 2 year extended warranty.
