Longer term review: after months with 3 580's and two 530's, I am thoroughly impressed, hell, I am beyond impressed. The sale price of these bad boys totaled 1300 bucks and this was very, very worth it in my opinion. The fullness, clarity, sound stage, imagine, its all fantastic! I have heard plenty better speakers, custom cabinets weight 150 lbs with 800 dollar a pop mid woofers, almost as expensive tweeters and some amazing 42 dollar 8" woofers lol. But point is, yes, there is certainly better experiences to be had, but at the sale price of these bad boys and not having to go the DIY route, these blow me away. I am amazed at the center imagine of them once you get them very, very towed in. I can watch a 2.0 broadcast, say Rick and Morty, and I would be be lying if I didn't believe the center channel was on pumping voices into my room. There is without a doubt a difference listening to true 5.1 source, but it is fantastic imagine none the less.
With that said, I think it may be time to replace my receiver so I can pair it with an nvidia shield TV for trueHD source. Right now my chromecast is plugged directly into my TC and audio is passed back over ARC which can't support TrueHD, and my receiver doesn't support 4k HDR.... so I need a new receiver.
Any suggestions? Also, any idea if this is a bad time to be buying a receiver? Are there any new codex on the horizon I should be waiting for support to be released for and thus wait for that new hardware decoding capability? Or is this just not how this works/not worth waiting for?
