Just starting the process of choosing a 5.1 speaker system with a new AV receiver to go with my new Syntax 32" HDTV and am looking for help. This new system will be used 60% listening to music or watching concert DVD's and the balance watching DVD's and HDTV. As you can see music is the driving force here. I will be leaving behind my 25 year old Bose 901's in order to step into the multi-channel universe. Let's say the budget is in the $2000 (preferably less) and the room is about 18' x 12'. What speakers are going to make me forget the Bose? (Please, let's keek the Bose bashing to a minimum if we can). The fronts need to be bookshelf or wall mounted and the rears would be wall mounted. And what receiver will I need to drive them? I also have an older Acoustimass 5 system. Could the cubes be used for the rear surrounds? Thanks.
