cambridge audio bookshelf speakers s30

  1. Speakers
    I'm looking at moving from my cambridge s30 and Polk psw108 to just a pair of tsi500's. I'm in a townhouse so the separate sub is nice for quick bass changes. How bassy are the tsi500's? Unfortunately no local stores have these hooked up to demo

     So I live in an NYC apartment. My living room is 12x14. I have a Yamaha RX-V375 with Cambridge S30 Bookshelfs. Its time to upgrade my setup with a subwoofer. I was recommened the Bic F12.

    I have a Sony STR DN1040 receiver. I don't want to have an elaborate speaker setup. I just want to use a 3 speaker setup. 2 speakers on either side of the tv and a subwoofer. Are there any great speakers that can give me surround sound from that setup? Any recommendations? Thanks

    Hello, I made a similar post a few months ago but was a bit unsure at the time about what I wanted. I just bought a Denon E400 receiver and will be starting off with a 2.0 set-up, adding a JBL150 sub around Christmas time. Anyway, it seems Cambridge s30 are highly regarded as are Definitive...

    The general consensus is this is a very good speaker, considering how inexpensive it is. I am thinking of getting Pioneer's matching subwoofer to help with the low end. There is no store in my city that carries these so I will have to gamble-- order online and test it out at home. The only...

    I have two receivers, Harman Kardon AVR254 (been using this since 2009 and has no issues that I know of) and Denon 1612 (just bought it used off of CL yesterday and it's in excellent shape) and I'd like to ask which receiver is overall better than the other. I like the convenience that Denon...
