I recently replaced my Denon HTIB receiver with A Sony STR-DG820. I thought that this was a big upgrade but now I find that Sony overstates the power ratings of their receivers and that loud BD movie passages make my 6 Ohm, 5.1 channel Denon HBIB speakers "clip" or make a loud popping sound. I knew I would be replacing the speakers at some point... I guess that time is now. Someone suggested that I look at the Klipsch HD 1000 Theater Series. The reasoning is as follows: I have a large theater area to fill with sound, the speakers will be used about 100% for HD broadcasts and BD movies (which Klipsch is known for), the speakers are efficient so my "underpowered" receiver s/b okay and at around $900, they are a pretty good price for Klipsch. Before I pull the trigger I have also heard good things about the Definitive Technology ProCinema 800 Series and the Paradigm Atom Monitor Series. The DT system is an older system that continues to get great reviews and the Paradigm system is quite a bit more expensive. What are your thoughts? I have also heard good things about Energy 5.1 systems. Is one of these Sat./Sub. systems the best in YOUR opinion. Maybe you know of one that I have yet to consider?? I live in the sticks so going to listen to these systems is not an option. Thanks for your help. I am a Non-tech Dad who just wants to watch sports and movies with my family. I really appreciate any help you may be able to provide.
