Hi All

I am trying to decided which speakers to use with RX-V775 Yamaha and Pinnacle Sonic 500 subwoofer. Options are:

1. BOSE DS16S  http://worldwide.bose.com/pro/assets/pdf/en/tds_fs_ds_16s_16se_loudspeakers.pdf

2. Proficient AW400 -  http://proficientaudio.com/products/outdoor/aw400-stereo-speakers   These look like outdoor speakers, however.

3. Triad On Wall Micro Sat -  http://triadspeakers.com/products/owmicrosat.html  

 

Any suggestions on which ones to pick? Any new suggestion in this price range is welcome as well ($75 to $200 per speaker)

 

Reasons for your picks will be appreciated as well.

 

Thanks a million

what exactly are you trying to accomplish? Is this for a home theater setup, music, 5.1?:

for up to $200 per speaker I could think of better options depending what you're trying to achieve.

Thanks for our reply.

I am trying to setup a HT setup in my family room size 16' x 19'. I am open to 5.1, 7.1 or 7.2. currently considering 7.2.

Main purpose is to watch TV/movies on my latest 65" Samsung 3D smart TV.

Music in adjacent large kitchen area as a second zone may be a distant second use but only if cost is not too prohibitive.

I'd stay away from satellites. They tend to sound thin and tinny. For home theater use, perhaps LCR speakers with horns all around from either Klipsch or BIC America. For music, I would not go with horns but tastes vary.

Samsung PN50C7000
Yamaha RX-V775WA
BIC Venturi DV64 Towers
BIC Venturi DV62 CLRs Center

Still building but sounds amazing so far

There are lots of choices:

Cambridge, Primus, Pioneer, Polk, etc

The Cambridge speakers on sale at accessories4less are a pretty good value.

http://www.accessories4less.com/index.php?page=search&search_query=Cambridge+Audio

A couple of S70's in the front, a S50 center, a pair of S50's for both the main room and a second zone would set you back $860 shipped, which is pretty reasonable.

As there is not a huge a mount of 7.1 programming out there, sticking with 5.1 would be fine.
