Ah, it was a glorious time back in the day when I built my first home theater. Bill Clinton was in office, DVD was the hip, new tech, and the kids were listening to...blah blah blah.


I am moving into a new place and finally have time to create a new setup around my 55" Vizio LED. I'm excited.


I'd like to use the old Energy 8 speakers provided that won't get me laughed out of the home theater enthusiasts club. They were state-of-the-art for their time and cost around $600 all on their own.


So, first order of business is finding a receiver to compliment them. I'm going a bit cheap on this one (blame the new home), so suggestions below $500 would be appreciated, and suggestions in the $300-400 range would be worshipped like the gods they are.


And if anybody could give me suggestions on a good way to find a couple of extra surrounds to take my 5.1 setup to 7.1, that would be greatly appreciated as well.


Thanks!

I'll admit that I'm not entirely sure. Not towers. Probably bookshelf. 85% sure they are bookshelf. Do I need to worry about getting Energy speakers to match them? I remember that, way back in the mid-90's, mixing and matching speakers was generally considered to be unsafe at any speed.

Great speakers! still have the sub in ebony. looks good and works great for it's size. I handles the 80-200hz though my Behringer BFD then my sonosub does the 80-14hz heavy lifting thru the other channel of the BFD. I hava RCA splitter from the AVR and 2 it works and tunes perfect.
