suggestions on direction of my system?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am fairly new to high end audio..  So, I figure I should detail my system, followed by a projected (very flexible) plan.

Currently I have an Onkyo tx-809 receiver ..  I purchased this in 2011 along with a MC630HD 5.1 Home Theater System ( hxxp://store.cambridgesoundworks.com/Cambridge-SoundWorks-Theater-System-MC630HD/dp/B0036UQ6RW ).  The system sounded great...   But then I eventually added 4 Energy Veritas 6.2 speakers into the mix, along with a peach tree audio DacIT.  So...  That is basically where I am at.  I currently only use the sub, and one of the speakers from the cambridge set up.   


What I am looking into? ..  I would like to purchase two Tekton Pendragons.  an Emotiva XPA-5 amp, and some sort of secondary sub, as I don't feel like the Cambridge one does enough..


Anyway, any input on what I should scrap from my system, or keep.. or advice alternate products at similar price points would be very appreciated..  I feel I should mention I probably listen to my music fairly loud at times (house parties, whatnot), but also in quite moderate volumes when alone (when clarity is very much wanted).


Thanks in advance.

Why the Pendragons instead of a couple more Veritas? If you've got 4, add three more for a really evenly matched 7.1 system. Or 1 more and a couple nice matching bookshelves for rear surrounds. Use the Emo to drive the fronts and sides and the AVR for the rear.

Then pick up a sub of your choice to round out the thump.

Or, you could just go all tektron with their Pendragon HT system!

Get happy with your speakers - then upgrade the AVR.

I was thinking Pendragons as they seem to be some of the best speakers for the price...  I've heard every different speaker produces a different sound - so I felt like adding more brands to the mix might bring more to my system? ..  Is mixing Pendragons with the veritas a bad idea? 

The main thing that attracts me to the Pens, is the 98db sensitivity.
