Do good speakers mean good surround?

    I have a home theater I have cobbled together over the years.

    Now I have bought a good projector and want to make sure my audio is at least in the realm of good. I am just not sure that my stuff actually works well for Blueray and 5.1.

    The speakers are Paradigms. I haver RTI8's for front speakers and Atom v.2 for rear speakers. My center speakers is a Sony CN200AV.

    I have any of three receivers I could use. Sony STRDE605 or Harman/Kardon HK3380 or Pioneer VSXD514

    any input/education appreciated

    Welcome Peter

    It's not clear if you are looking for all new speakers of a quick fix of what you have. The major flaw of your existing inventory is your Sony center channel. It should be replaced with a Paradigm center channel that is timbre matched to for front speakers. This is important because in a 5.1 system the center channel handles most of the dialog and must coordinate with your front Left and Right.

    I don't see a sub so you might consider adding one.

    Your receivers appear to be quite dated and something new might give you better connection options.
