Need some help been looking at upgrading my system and needed some help, I was looking at going with RF-7 II's and a RC-64 but at the same time from a cost stand point would going with 4 RP-280's and the RP-450 be the better choice.
All of this is going in a room that is 16' by 26' and being ran off an Onkyo 747.

Also if you have a Fry's nearby they have the 115 on sale every couple months it seems.
Nearest Fry's is about 2 hrs away, which is not an issue for me. I'll keep my eye out for the 115. Thanks for the help!

My rear wall is about 50 inches to my ears and the RP160s do a fine job as surrounds. Looks like yours may be similiar setup as mine?

You'll be happy with the new RP line. The Reference II series is hard to beat. Or wait until the III 7 and 64 come out. Of course, price goes up on each set.

The problem is not many shops carry klipsch anymore cause they sell direct and if they do it's not set up for theater. Right now I'm running 4 polk rti a4 and a csi a4 and didn't know if the 4 towers would be an over kill.
Wasn't really looking at the III's as I know the 7 II's should be moving at some good deals and one place is cutting a good deal on the RP line.

Going up to RF7II's and a RC64II was one of the best audio moves I ever made.

Congrats on your decision! I've had one or two Yamaha's in the distant past...nothing recent...so I'm neutral. I've had good experience with older D+M flagship AVR's...recent models...not as much. Despite the overwhelming favoritism for D+M in these threads, I still favor/prefer Onkyo's power and SQ. I would be interested in your impressions of the 3060 and will look for your posts here and in the Yamaha thread.

Ill let you know. Other than an ONkyo 805 back in the day, I've only had Denon and Marantz stuff since. D&M has lost me as a customer though, I bought a 7702 only to find out it would not pass HDR10, so I was able to sell it and grab a 7702MKII without too much loss, now they are only bringing Dolby Vision to the 7703. Lack of support IMO for a $2200 preamp, so its about time to try another brand. I'll have the A3060 feeding RCA's to my Outlaw Model 7140.

You, @retro124 and I followed the same path, benefitted from the same journey, and arrived at the same conclusion!

In general, I considered going with separates from time to time...then reconsidered (I have a pet peeve with the cost of pre-amps) and stuck with AVR's. Perhaps I'll do an AVR front end as you're doing sometime soon.

Understand your frustration with D+M's position...

As my primary display for movies is a projector, I'll be content with HDR10 for the time being...projectors do not and will not have DV capability for a long time as there are technical challenges to measuring luminance dynamically for PJ's. Maybe this is a sign for me to upgrade my older flat panel.

Is Onkyo doing better with the HDMI handshake then Integra? I have a DTR-60.4 that Integra prepacked the mother board on and it lasted about a year and the problem came back to where I had no video switching anymore. I now have two Integra's that I can't use. My DHC-60.5 is doing ok so far, knock wood. Maybe it is just the AVR's that are problem not the Pre Pro's. Not sure. I have been looking at the Denon, Marantz, Yamaha, Onkyo and Integra for the new Dolby Atmos AVR's or Pre Pro.

I always thought Integra was Onkyo's higher end line and same company makes both? Or no?

Yes that is correct and I have been told both were having the problem, but maybe more for Integra. Just sucks, you spend all that money and then you can't us it and it coast an arm and a leg to get it fixed.+

Either set will be an excellent choice. If you can afford the Reference II line, jump on that. The RP line is no slouch if you go that route.

Well RF-7II is better speaker then RP-280 no question about it. Also what is your percentage music/movies?

RF-7II/RC-64II is a keeper there is really nothing like "what if" unless you want go crazy and start looking for Palladium line. After all set ups I went thru I know now I will get RF-7II's/RC-64II in first place and never looked back. Even if I will know I will have to wait longer to get surrounds still this LCR is excellent!!!
