That means those are around the same time Audiovox closed up shop on Advent as well. If I remember right, AR was higher up than Advent(although Advent was never "super high end" anyway. They just made good stuff).

So are you saying I should ditch all my AR speakers? I am not opposed to that Ill just have to see what I can get for em so I know what I have to work with on new stuff.  I did buy the AR C225ps center on ebay $50 including shipping.  So now I have 5 maybe 6 good 216s and the 225.

No I don't mean Chuck them.

Those are better than anything "new" under $1200.

Those are just not AR from prior to Audiovox.

Put it this way. I'd rather have your AR than Polk TSi. And you spent under $400.

Ok so I should get the 316s. And my entire speaker set except for the sub will be AR from the same era? What would it cost to top this set up?

Thanks for the help. I ordered the 318s. And to think I almost bought a 7.1 set by onkyo for not quite $400. Bet I would have been disappointed.

So I have done a little research and found that audiovox acquired AR in 2003. All of my speakers were made prior to audiovox. Yay. Does this further your opinion?
Thanks again for the help
