on the page before, I decided to grab 2 of these for L/R
and one of these for center:
which added $300 to the price, minus $400 for the sub, netting me a $100 savings. I may spend that on the Dayton sub SpykeZ recommended or throw it into going up another tier on the receiver. This is a lifetime system, so I can ad more speakers, but I'm not replacing any that I buy. It's going to go along side all of my other gear. As for 7.1, I'm not sure about that, how much media has true 7.1, where the front L/R, side L/R, and rear L/R are all separated? 7.2, which this receiver supports is even odder, is there anything that has L/R on the sub channel?
Long story short, I've decided on 5.1 for now, and if I want to, I'll add more speakers and/or a sub or 2 later. I really like the Receiver, and from what I can tell, these are some of the best speakers in their price brackets. I learned a long time ago that when I cheap out on something, I always want to upgrade it later. I feel like $2500 is a good price for a lifetime system, if I add 2 more book shelves and 2 subs, we're talking $3000 max.
If anyone knows of any better speakers for any of the groups that I posted, I'd be more than happy to listen, I just made this list today, and I really know nothing about who's the best for speakers.
