For that price I suggest 3 options. The Andrew Jones designed Pioneer SP-BS22 bookshelf speakers. You could buy 3 pairs so you have 5 identical speakers and still be way under budget.


For $750...

Good question. I'm no expert here but maybe there are aspects of the sound coming from a particular speaker that we don't/can't measure such as harmonics, etc. Do different types of crossover designs...

Denon and Marantz have separate engineering teams that spec different internal components and designs. They are not "99% the exact same" and they will have a different sound.

Your avr is probably weak and thin sounding. Those are relatively hard to drive speakers. You may not need more power but you do need cleaner power, beefier power supply, more headroom. A higher end...

I think it depends on the speakers. Both the l & r and the center quality. I've had "matching" centers where I thought phantom sounded much better. And I've tried phantom center with other speakers...

Just try it with the Sony center and try it with phantom center and see which you prefer. I'm pretty much certain I would prefer phantom center, especially for movies. TV only maybe not so much. And...

Well Paul Barton, owner of PSB speakers, says there is no such thing as speaker break-in. So who's right Klipsch or PSB? I believe, as someone said earlier, it's your brain adjusting to the new...

I would consider the Denon AVR-X2100. It has a good feature set and gets great reviews. It can be bought new now for $400 or much less as a refurb from accessories4less.

I think they are a slight upgrade in sound, big upgrade in aesthetics. Assuming you're talking about the RTi A series. I didn't have them at the same time but I can say I kept the RTi A1's for almost...

I didn't have them both at the same time but I definitely liked the rti a1's better than the rti4's. I believe they tweaked the crossovers and the a series have the curved cabinets that are supposed...

Yes those Monitor 30's are more or less junk. The newer RTi line is good. Supposedly the LSi are very good but I haven't heard them. The vintage stuff can be very good, especially once upgraded. I...

They are pretty amazing speakers. I had a pair for awhile. Thought about doing a whole surround setup with 5 of them. They are power hungry though. That's why I didn't go that route. Did you try a...

Not a scam. I wouldn't worry at all. Look at the seller's ratings. Speakers have a markup. It stands to reason companies can pick up a bulk lot at a significant discount.
