If this upgrade happens it will be about a year down the road or so, but part of the fun of this hobby is dreaming about it When I do take this plunge, I will have a 7channel amp ( either sherbourn or b&k), a h/k 525 as a pre/pro, and svs pb2+. I will have aprox $8000.00 (give or take) to spend on 6 speakers and a center speaker. I would like to stay with bookshelf size of some sort because I want 6 indentical speakers for front, surround, and back surround. I want identical speakers for the seamless soundstage. I run 6 jbl s-38's right now with the s-center and love the seamless soundfield for movies and concerts. I will be using these speakers for movies and music (60/40). I enjoy listening at very high volume so I need a speaker that can be played LOUD without distorting and that I dont have to worry about blowing out. My question is what speakers should I include in my demo sessions for my requirements and price range?
