    I have recently upgraded an Onkyo 787 to a Pioneer Elite 53TX (Onkyo will be moved to the bedroom). I will now need to upgrade my speaker set up, so I can move the old set up to the bedroom with the Onkyo.


    AR 428PS - Main
    AR C225PS - Center
    AR 215PS - Surrounds

    I am using a Velodyne CHT-15 for a sub. I will be keeping the sub in the living room.

    The living room is large in size (Arizona great room. Two rooms joined) with vaulted ceilings.

    I only have about $1000 dollar to work with. What would sound good with the 53TX? My main interest is 70% HT/ 30% Music.

    I am looking for more detail and mid bass then I have previously experiences with the AR performance series.

    I am considering

    MORDAUNT SHORT 905C - center
    MORDAUNT SHORT 903S - Surround sides/backs
    MORDAUNT SHORT 904 - Mains

    This set up can be had for about $880 shipped. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

    For $1000 on ALL of the speakers I don't even think it would be worth it to "upgrade". You probably would do just as well with the AR's, IMO.
