I've got an old Technics SA-GX490 that I use as the center of my entertainment system. My turntable, CD, TV, VCR, DVD and iTunes (via Airport Express) are all hooked up to it. I also listen to AM and FM radio a lot. The tuner has inputs for four regular speakers, one center speaker and two surround speakers. Right now I have four *very* old Realistic bookshelf speakers hooked up to it, placed in the four corners of the room. I would very much like to treat myself to better sound and better speakers. I'd like to get a three speaker surround system, and perhaps two or four other new stero speakers. I'm not sure what would improve the sound the most, and don't really know how to select what is best. I live in a condo and have neighbors on two sides, as well as upstairs and downstairs. The construction is reasonably soundproof, but I can't get anything that makes too much bass, as that carries in my building. My maximum budget for this project is about $1,000, but I would rather spend less if I could. You advice would really be appreciated. If you need to know more specifics about my setup or my living room please let me know. Thanks.
