I recently upgraded my speakers... I got the Def Tech BP8060ST the 8040 center, and the bp8040 surrounds (for the back surrounds), and I have the promonitor 1000's for the surrounds. I am also running 2 supercube II's. I am using lfe cables connected to both subs and the fronts using y splitters. Using 12g speaker wire, and dual shielded lfe cables.
I have been using the Sony STR Dn 1000 for few years, and upgrading my speakers got me wondering if it was also time to upgrade my receiver.. Any suggestions would be helpful.. I am not interested in wifi or bluetooth, what I am looking for is whether upgrading will get me better sound.. I would say use is 75- movies/gaming, and 25% music. Budget wise if upgrading will make a significant difference I'd like to stick under $1000, max would be $1500
