HI---I'm new to this and it is driving me nutz. I have decided to go totally refurbished to get the best bang but other than the receiver, I"m finding it impossible to pick a Left, Right and Center speaker. Unless challanged, I will be going with a Marantz SR5004 or Onkyo TX SR 707 receiver for around $350. I need to keep the speaker cost to $200 or less each so that I can afford a subwoofer. I have found a Klipsch WC 24 center speaker for $200 originally $500 but with no experience I have no idea if this is a good choice.

With speakers there are so many options that I just can't decide which way to go. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would recommend going with at least the same speaker manufacture for all 5/7 you are doing. As far as speakers themselves I have heard good things about Energy speakers that are most likely in your price range I think.

Equipment: Panasonic TC-P65VT25, Panasonic DMP-BDT100, Pioneer Elite SC-37, TiVo Premiere XL, Limited Edition MW3 XBOX 360s with Kinect, Apple TV
Speakers: Definitive Technology Mythos XTR60 (3), Definitive Technology Mythos XTR20BP (4), Definitive Technology SuperCube II

dmiller68---thanks for the input. At this point I have chosen left and right monitor 70's with the CS2 center, both by Polk. The receiver witll be the Onkyo TX  SR 707. I'll probably have to go with a wireless Sub to give me some leeway as to its location. Wish me luck.   Frank

did you research on your local? there might be some speakers who are paid less than those figures you noted.

Alec....I don't understand what you mean by bass lagging behind? Do you mean the sound is not in sync with the picture on your tv?
