Hi, I have a 50-in Panasonic G25. So far I've using the built-in Speakers. I'd like to upgrade to better audio. Don't really have room for a 5-speaker system. Hoping you could recommend a good system (floor standing) with 2 front speakers and a base unit which I can hide anywhere. Thank you.

Look at JBL 4326 ( http://jblmonitors.com/index.php/JBL...o-Monitor.html ). They have internal DAC and power amp, come with remote (for volume control) too. You do not need anything else to get sound from your TV.

Budget and room layout/floor plan?


Your options are everything from soundbars of varying quality and price to 2.1 options having the same price range.

My room, which is a living room/dining room combination, is 13x24. The entertainment center is along one of the two long walls, the sofa directly opposite to it. So, the viewing distance is roughly 12 ft. I don't really want to spend a lot of dough on this. Would like to stay below $1,000.

I would probably get a ($100-200) Sherwood stereo reciever and spend the rest on a nice pair of bookshelves or towers. Speakers will make the most difference in sound, so spend the bulk on them. If your budget is $1000 tops, you can get some really nice speakers for $700-900.

Blacklac, I have an ADCOM preamp/tuner and 50w amp that's about 10 years old. I love the system, and it's still going strong. I'm planning to use them for the home theater setup. Could you recommend a speaker set? What do you think of Klipsch RF-42 II or Klipsch Reference Series RF-82?

Would you prefer bookshelves or towers? Sorry, I don't know much about Klipsch.


If you go I'm the speaker section and search $700 and $1000, you will find fairly recent threads about speakers in that price. I was just searching myself in the $700 bookshelf range. I narrowed it down to Paradigm SE1's and B&W 685, but I wasn't able to hear the B&W's in person so I liked the SE1's and went with them. I am happy with my purchase after getting them home and into my system. I use a small sub with them.


You have TONS of options.

I personally don't care for Klipsch as much as I do, Definitive and Martin Logan. Also I think if you are open to it, Magnolia Home Theaters are no longer going to carry Vienna speakers so you may be able to get a good deal on floor model Hyden bookshelf speakers.
