So, what did y'all pay for your speakers? (I'm doing a 7.1 set-up for reference)

What relevance does asking what people spent on there speakers have anything to do with the ones you're looking at? So if I spent 100k on my speakers, than you feel more justified in paying more than you originally intended on your speakers?
Did you read the original post?
Not sure where you get the "mines bigger than yours thread". The OP received a quote for a very capable speaker system and was a little taken aback at the price tag attached. The question was asked as a reference of what others paid for their speaker system so that the OP could see if his quote was in line. Not all speakers are created equal....that for sure.
I think I agree with you comment regarding cheap speakers -vs- poorly setup room provided the speakers are up to the demands of a home theater.
LCR $2,800 JTR Triple 8's (from fellow AVS member)
sides $ 900 Triad Silver/4 InWalls (from fellow AVS member)
rears $ 443 Triad Silver/4 InWalls (Videogon)
sub $1,262 Danley DTS-10 (new kit)
subs $ 360 Triad Bronze/4 InWalls (Craigslist)
All speakers are in excellent condition despite most having seen previous service in somebodys theater. Not sure what the MSRP's are but I think I have made some pretty good purchases and the system is pretty capable! Guess you could say it is bigger than some
Some friendly advice: Get your plan/design together BEFORE you start purchasing equipment. I have $2,182 wrapped up in (7) eD bookshelves W6-6TC's and a A5-350 that I will NOT be using in my theater.
Good luck jefftr!
