Are my speakers too old?

    Back in 2007/2008 I purchased James Loudspeakers for my home theater. I have since moved and stored them. They haven't seen the light of day since 2014. I have the following:

    1 - EMB 1200 sub
    3 - 805 SDX's
    4 - 62 SDX's

    This may be a silly question but in my new house, I am considering building a theater in my basement and using these. Since I have been out of the theater world for a while, has speaker technology changed enough that I shoudl consider new loudspeakers?

    Thank you.

    No. Speakers have not changed perceptibly since then.

    Your biggest issue will be the hardware doing the decoding, but only if you care about audio formats outside of (the run-of-the-mill) 7.1, like Atmos.

    If you're like me and are satisfied with with what you have, the issue simplifies itself down to proper speaker mounting & calibration, then just getting a signal from the player(s) to the amp...
