Here is something however, I noticed a LOT of people on here seem to have bought the 4 series only to turn around and go with the 5 series. My basement theater is approximately 450 sq feet in an L shape and has 7' 8" ceilings. Are the 4 series speakers good or should I opt for the bigger 5 series? My Onkyo 757 does not have preouts (aside from LFE), so would it be big enough to power the 5T towers? Sorry for the questions here just am wondering if I should have gone bigger up front and want to settle it before the 60 day trial is over (though I think the trade up program is 12 months right? Does that include shipping as well?)
I think the big difference with the 5T vs 4T is more midbass and a little deeper bass overall. Maybe a bit of a richer sound, but that would be most noticeable when using without a sub. Usually larger drivers are more efficient so the 5T may actually be easier to drive on your amp than the 4T. However, if it were me I'd keep the 4T and upgrade the sub to the biggest you can get. I think that would make a bigger difference than going from the 4T to 5T.

Actually today I was in best and saw a Klipsch 12" 600 watt sub that was open box. Normally $450 but it was marked down to $300 because of some scratches on the cabinet (but in otherwise perfect working order). I had a $100 gift card from work (won a little bet with my boss haha) plus I noticed my new Onkyo was $100 less than what I paid for it a month ago and they honored the difference so i basically paid $100 for the thing. Got it home and hooked it up. Coupled with my bravus sub it made a big difference and now my little theater sounds killer.

The home theater gods were smiling on you. Love when that happens!

Amen to that. This is my first theater and have only been at it a few months. With 2 little kids my time is limited and so is my budget unfortunately, so anytime I get a good deal like that I tend to jump on it.

OK so I know I am dating myself... but I just finished listening to The Chicago Transit Authority album (w/Spotify, aging PS3 & SC-07) in stereo with my Verus II Grand Tower speakers.

A very enjoyable listening experience.

*** The Official APERION Thread ***

Guys...
I'm thinking about upgrading from my verus 2 set
What do you think a cherry colored 18 month old towers, center, and bookshelves set would go for in excellent condition?

New, it's about $3800 and it's on backorder.

Thanks

Then next step:
Another power amp and the step after, a new AVP

I now own another AVP, the Marantz AV7702mkII
Only one more step, the extra amp and it should be only a matter of a few months

I did a best-offer ad for (2) Cherry Intimus 6T's & (1) 6C (purchased during 2009) on the AVSF Classified's earlier this year and didn't receive any offers.

Unknowingly I think I violated the Forum rules for advertising them for sale w/o an asking price, because I received a warning notice from the moderator.

I live in upstate NY so I believe my location was a factor in the lack of interest.

Bottom line... is there isn't much value for the resale of electronics or speakers.

I think you'd be lucky to get $2k-$2.5 for them, maybe a bit more. I bought a used Intimus 6T, 6C, 6B set for $500 and sold it recently for about the same after posting for 2 months locally (I also included speaker stands, cables, and outriggers so I got a bit more). What you have working for you is that your model is current and backordered, so you might find a buyer looking for what you have. Depending on how motivated you are to sell I'd list it at around $2500-$2800 and see what the response is. You could also price them out separately.
