I'd do the Studio 230s if you have an amp solution already. I had Studio 230s as PC speakers for a while. The LSRs are powered monitors, so that would rule them out for me since I like the flexibility of a separate amp.

TV: Samsung 55" 3D LED | Sources: PS4; Panasonic DMP-BT460; HDTV cable | Processor: Marantz AV8802A | Amps: Emotiva XPA-1L\100 (LR\C); UPA-5 | Fronts: JBL Studio 590 | Center: JBL Studio LC2 | Surrounds: JBL P520WS | Subs: PSA S1500 (2)

I don't have an amp yet, I plan to buy a used receiver. I was just wondering if the Studio 230s are inferior or anything, other than the bass extension which I know is not as good as the LSR305/8, but I'm OK with that as I have a subwoofer. Also, I do want to finally go surround.

Ah, got you. Yeah, if you're going surround, I see the 230 being a good idea. I agree with you on the bass thing; bass management with a dedicated sub makes a surround setup much better.

Not to mention, if you got a receiver, you would have to ensure it had enough preout connections to run to the LSRs since speakers are typically connected to a receiver via speaker wire.

Yeah, receivers with pre-outs are more expensive as well. Passive is the way to go for me.
