    I bought a Yamaha RX-371 to replace my Onkyo and I want to replace my speakers for a 5.1 setup in a small apartment. Any suggestions?
    Thanks.:)

    What type of speakers do you want? Towers, bookshelf, satellites? What's your budget? The Energy Classic Take 5.1 system is very popular and highly rated.
