The Pioneers are great sounding speakers but they are just too small to be able to fill a large space to a big volume and it sounds like there is issue with overall volume and not just with bass. The...

Thus is the nature of speaker shopping. Everyone has different tastes of what they like and few have heard more than two or three of the speakers at this price level. To make it more difficult, room...

First thing to do is decide what type of set-up you want to go with. Some people choose to build a higher quality system to start with so they spend their available money on a 2.1 system (two...

This is a good point. you can't just get another sub to fit in with that system. One thing you could do for now would be to get a little t-amp and buy the cheap dayton bookshelves. The dayton...

You got a good deal. That was a legitimate $1000+ receiver when it came out. I wish I had one. Newer receivers aren't any more powerful than older ones (and frequently the new ones are less powerful...

Most Klipsch speakers are some of the easiest speakers to drive there are. Your receiver will have no problem. The H/K 7550 is actually a beast back from when H/K was actually honest with watt...

The pioneers get a lot of love for a low cost speaker. They are frequently on sale for a very low price, but I am not sure how available they are in Canada. For instance, here's a pair of towers on...

I haven't ever done a direct comparison between the pioneer and fluance, but I would stick with the pioneers.

Fluance are ok for the price, but nothing special. The $99 price is actual normal for them. You do get what you pay for. For a cheap set, they will serve you just fine though. Many people buy them...

As I said, unless there are features that you really want that the HK doesn't have or doesn't do well, there is very little reason to change avr's. Doesn't sound like that is the case, so just stick...

It's up to you what you want to prioritize. The Sony should still be able to drive something like the Polks or Teacs to moderate volume in an average size space just fine.

Denon is a much better amp with a significantly better power supply (200 watt vs 460 watt). This allows it to handle a much heavier load with more stability (and with less distortion), particularly...

The E400 will wipe the floor with the Sony so if you can swing it, that is the way to go. You will be set should you ever decide to upgrade speakers later. Of course, the Sony should be fine driving...

Try Tom's suggestion before anything else (he's a pro). The problem does stem from the sub, not the AVR so if it continues to bother you, I'd sell the sub and leave the AVR for now.

Repair ideas for old JBL Sub-12?

I've got an old JBL Sub-12 taking up storage space with a bad amp (it suffered the classic Harman amp meltdown). I know its low end, but it served its purpose at the time. I'd hate to just trash the...

I have not heard them, but based on measurements, I'd put the Hsu STF-2 as the next very modest step up. Then after that is the $500 SVS PB-1000 and possibly the Reaction Audio BPS 212. There's a...
