That sounds like a good plan. Keep the Infinity speakers for the office and add a nice integrated amp or stereo receiver for those. Are you thinking a $2000 budget just for the front three speakers...

If you're worried about taking a gamble just get the Hsu VTF-15H. They are very well reviewed and respected and cheaper than the echo or rythmik. Two of them eventually would be incredible and I just...

TJ - couple things...I would not upgrade your monitor 60's to monitor 70's. I don't think it's enough of an upgrade to justify. I would change your center and your sub.

You could save...

Is the tv going to be that high? I prefer the center located below the tv to be as close to the tv as possible so it's more believable that the sound is coming from the tv. If you have a regular...

Sorry just realized you said you have no sub. If you added a sub and crossed your speakers over at 80Hz the midrange and highs will improve significantly. Other than that you could upgrade your...

Why are they set to full range? Their lower limit at -3dB is 55Hz. They aren't the most efficient either.


Are all your speakers running full range? That will be pretty tough on that receiver....

For a $1000 there are a ton of alternatives. Some arguably better, but most just different. If you like your Synergy Klipsch you will like the Reference series better for sure.

For $300 total you should go used. On the amp at least.


You can find some decent speakers used for around $150. DCM CX-17 comes to mind. Great speaker. The Pioneer SP-BS22 is also good....

If your surrounds are directly to the side then you want dipole. With Dipole the drivers are out of phase with each other. This creates a null zone and a nice open enveloping surround sound. But you...

That Sony is a very low end receiver that only weighs 16 pounds. I can guarantee you that Marantz NR1403 will sound much much better. It will be a fuller, warmer sound with much more bass weight.

Can't go wrong with a Sony tv for gaming. They seem to have a focus on low input lag. BB has the Sony KDL40W600B.

$300 for 5 speakers is $60 each. Not a lot of choices. If you can't stretch your budget, and don't have a huge room, I would get the Energy Take Classic or RC-Micro setup. At least you're getting 5...

Absolutely an upgrade imo. Such a smooth detailed tweeter. Midrange is a little laid back. Very listenable speakers. I wish I hadn't sold mine.

Those speakers are fairly hard to drive; not very efficient. A receiver in that price range definitely won't do them justice. You may want to just get the BS22's for the fronts. The consensus is they...
