... wouldn't want to spend much more than ~$400 on the bookshelf speakers if possible unless it was for something truly special.
I listen to both music and tv/movies with this setup.
Hoping to get some feedback on what you would suggest for killer sound out of a more compact setup!
How big is the room where you're planning to put these new bookshelf speakers in? What are the room dimensions in terms of front to back, side to side and ceiling to floor? How far away do you sit from the speakers? The room plays an important role in sound reproduction as it affects the listening environment.
If you're still looking for good quality speakers, might want to consider the Andrew Jones designed Pioneer bookshelf Atmos speakers: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...rs/SP-EBS73-LR
as are very interesting. Later on when you up-grade your receiver for Atmos, these speakers have the built in Atmos enabled modules to which can be easily connected to.
Andrew designs high end speakers for TAD.
