Changing speakers will change the sound MUCH more than changing amps. Get the speakers you want now, upgrade the amp later when you can.

There are two well reviewed ebay retailers for Klipsch speakers, I have used one of them 3 times.

And rightly so! All that matters is that you're a card holding member the Klipsch familia!

Unrelated but just saw that you have a Pioneer DVL-909! I also have a DVL-909, a CLD-D505 for backup, and about 120 LaserDiscs titles. I guess there are still a few of us who are old school and have trouble letting go of past technologies. My family calls it hoarding!

As a Charlotte resident, you may appreciate this last unrelated story...

I'm an ex-smoker (Winston) and years ago on a business trip to Charlotte, our group was invited to tour the Speedway. At the time, smoking was starting to be banned from public places. So, during the visit, I asked a Speedway representative where smoking was permitted. Her response was..."Anywhere you like...Don't you realize what state you're in and who the NASCAR sponsors are?" Well Duh?

Yes they have banned smoking in all public places maybe 10 years ago and have to go outside now. Now the NASCAR doesn't have sponsor of cigarettes on their cars anymore. lol They traded in cigarettes for sodas!

The RP280FA have been called the best atmos enabled speakers available, and I've seen owners who are extremely happy and love it!

That being said they are still expensive as hell lol I was personally dreaming of either them or the pioneer sp-ef s72 atmos enabled floorstanding speakers by andrew jones, but since they are both too expensive im now stuck between either the ELAC atmos modules or the Pioneer Atmos modules. Anyone who has tried these id appreciate some advice

I currently have the RP280fa now. I was going to use them as my rears (the injustice right?) since I can get a really good deal on the RF63 / RC64/ RS62 combo.

I dont know much about speakers but I'll tell you this from what ive seen everywhere ive looked, unless you're getting in ceiling speakers for the front, don't change to any other atmos enabled speaker other than the RP280FA.

Assuming your question revolves around Atmos performance, it's really not a matter of preference...but what works best in your environment/room. Assuming you do not want or cannot install in or on ceiling speakers, Dolby Atmos Enabled Speakers (DAES) are your next choice. Among these reflective/bounce type speakers, Klipsch's FA and SA series are regarded to be among the better choices. IMO, the portable module (RP 140SA) vs fixed built in approach offers more flexibility. The size of your room, ceiling height & type, speaker placement and orientation, seating positions all determine where and how effective reflected sound will be. IMO, a portable module would offer more options (can be used in front/side/rear) for placement and aiming. Also the RP280FA (vs the RP280F) is less likely to have as broad an appeal to buyers if you should sell down the line.

Those 63s are very highly regarded Klipsch speakers. They are getting rare also. I'm sure they're great for HT, but I've heard those and a good sub are hard to beat for 2 channel.

I did not quite do that comparison but did compare the RP 280 to the MT 110. These speakers are quite different. The Klipsch will offer much more punchy midbass but the PSA will give a more cleaner and purer sound. I found them to be less fatiguing to the ear as well as had a larger soundstage. The 7ii are rated at 101db but knowing how they inflate their sensitivity numbers, they are more like 95db, so the 210s are likely more sensitive. If you have nice subs, the 210s will sound fantastic. Speaker selection is a very personal choice, more so than subs, so to me the PSA sounded better. The Klipsch were very good, the PSA were excellent.

I haven't, but I can't see anyone being unhappy with either. PSA seems to follow Klipsches rules on loud speaker design, which is a good thing, imo.

I have it hooked up with a component RBG cable, but when I play a DVD on it, it's black and white. I haven't tried a laserdisk in it in a long time. I have another cable and need to try it to see if it is the 909 or the cable. I have about 50 LD's and I also have two turn tables with album's, 8 tracks and cassettes​. I am a little bit of a hoarder as well.
