    I'm kicking around the idea of new speakers, and here's what I'm considering:

    These are almost exclusively for home theater usage, with only occasional music. I don't need a sub because I have an SVS 20-39. I have a Marantz SR-4001 receiver that I'm planning on keeping for awhile - eventually I'll get a power amp and then a pre-pro.

    Currently I'm in an apartment with a small living room, so I have to keep the volume low, but I will eventually move into a house, hopefully with a dedicated theater room. The speakers will have to make the journey with me. I think I'm looking for something that will be clear at low-ish volumes but still have the ability to fill up a large space. I'm thinking Klipsch, but I've never really been a fan, albeit with limited experience. I'm currently running Energy Veritas 2.1 across the front, with Paradigm Atoms in back.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    I am not sure what your budget is. With that said, I recently purchased the Klipsch Quintet package and used it for 38 days before deciding I needed more. I too, use my speakers almost exclusively for movies but noticed I was missing midrange sounds when I played music. I have an h-100 sub which I am very satisfied with. I talked with Best Buy and they agreed to let me exchange the speakers. I have since purchased a set of Klipsch B-2's and a C-3 center. I am using a set of old Onyko speakers for surrounds and will probably go with S-1's soon. I must say I am very satisfied with the choice I made to upgrade. These speakers sound great with music and I notice a significant difference when watching movies. The sound is so natural even at low volumes. I work nights and have the volume at low levels the majority of the time. Total cost was $440 for the 3 fronts and worth every penny.

    Hope this helps.

    One more thing, I own a house and have my 65' HDTV sitting about 23 feet away and these speakers do fill the room nicely.
