That's good advice (or at the very least, a good cautionary tale), but while it's bad enough that I can't even go to a store and listen to a lot of those, I certainly wont have the opportunity to ...

I dont understand what tone color is...but the idea of matching the speakers that do the most work together does at least make sense. I would not ideally want to buy 'any' speakers before listening...

I had an old JBL northridge 5.1 setup (pretty decent for the price, hefty sized satelites with a center channel, I think the sub was seperate but that didn't hold up).

Anyway, I already replaced...

I have a Sony STR/DG-1000 - contemplating a STR1050/Denon X3100/4100 / Pioneer - ??
