This is my first post. Woohoo! Anyways, I've always had a crappy home theatre setup my entire life (I'm 23). My last setup was a Kenwood 350 watt amp + Celestion centre ($100) + Prolinear fronts (175$) + Enery Take 2.2 rears ($150). After 6 years of listening to a crappy reciever and low-end speakers, one of my friends invited me over to his place to watch a movie on his new HT setup. WOW! I was floored. I never knew a movie could sound that good (I could actually feel the bass in my chest and I would flinch at the fast crisp highs). His system comprises of a high end HK reciever combined with a big Nuance Center speaker, 7ft tall Nuance fronts (with built in subs) and 5ft Nuance's for the rears. The whole setup cost him well over $6000 CAD. I'm not that rich and I don't have a lot of money to spend like my friend, but I wanted a nice HT setup of my own. I decided to go down to some stores around town and window shop for good affordable components. The first thing I picked up was a reciever. After alot of research and listening, I purchased the Denon 1803. The amp provided great high end and clarity, but most important, it was some what affordable. After many years of listening to Pro-Logic, I was more than impressed with the upgrade to digital 5.1. Now after 6 months of watching movies and listening to music, I am still happy but know my cheap front speakers (including the centre) are limiting the overall sound quality from the Denon. I don't really care too much about my rears as they sound great and are rarely used. But I was really looking at upgrading my Fronts and Centre. I've listened to Klipsch (RB-25, RC-25, and RF-3) and they sound great in movies but not so "natural" for music. Then I listened to some Energy Connoisseurs and was floored by the musical reproduction. The Energy's were almost a clear choice for me until I tried out some Misson m34's. Wow, it sounded very similar to the Energy C5's but it had more of a "crisp" high end to it. I'm a big fan of a electronic band named "Orbital", so I brought my CD down to the local store that had these Mission and Energy speakers. I played a song called "Chime" and I could hear certain "ambient" sounds on the Missions that I could also hear on the Energy's, but it was no where near as pronouced and clean. My choice after this test was to go ahead and buy the Missions, however, I didn't want to rush my purchase so I held off for the moment. I have held off on buying any speakers because now I'm not sure about one thing, will I become more of an audiophile as time goes by and learn to dislike my selection in speakers ? I basically don't want to spend $1000 CAD on a pair of fronts that sound great right now, but as time goes on I will come to dislike. What I am asking is for some of you "audiophiles" to give your opinions on Klipsh References, Energy Connoisseurs, and most important, the Mission "M" series (or any other speakers that sound great with a Denon reciever). Your ears have more experience than mine without a doubt. Thanks in advance!!!! Oh, my room is about 10x20 and has carpet throughout.
