I'm a long time follower, and have used your collective wisdom in various arenas in the past..
I just bought a Denon x3000 (upgrade from an old onkyo, and I was able to get the Denon on sale), and am fairly happy with it.
Next up is speaker upgrades. I'm going from an Energy take 5.0 setup (with an Onkyo- boomy, [crappy] sub), and now looking at BIC America (no need for the aucoustech, as my room is small and horns will blow it out [i've got tile and hardwood]).
What do you guys think? I like my Energy's (AKA want something similar; and those speakers are gonna end up upstairs in the other room) and I like the thought of BIC towers with a HSU sub (BIC center and surrounds to fill it out).
Bottom lime, I'm not a fan of 'store-bought' brands (polk, klipch, etc, so please dont recommend those)
Any thoughts on boston acoustics? I know they're pricy, but I'm willing to consider
I really want quality (affordable). bottom line.
