I've done several searches here and have found no discussion of my current speaker system. I have the Harman Kardon HKTS 6, purchased a year ago, for 400$. At the time, I needed a speaker set to go with my Denon AVR-1600 (which I'd been using in stereo with an old pair of Celestion DL6s). I'm not looking to brag about my current speakers as they are a very limited, budget system. I auditioned a number of similarly priced systems and found these the best of a limited lot. I believe they are actually JBLs, licensed by HK. For dvd films, they are acceptable (not very sensitive though, my receiver has to work fairly hard). I bring all this up in response to a number of threads regarding Bose Acoustimass systems. Just out of curiosity, I also listened to a couple of the Bose systems and can say that, regardless of price, my humble HKs are far better. (The price tag of the HKs was unknown to me at the time of comparison and I was going to forego the HKs, thinking they were in the Bose price-range). I'm not an engineer but I am a long-time audio enthusiast and it was easy to hear the qualitative difference. My finances will soon allow me to do a significant upgrade and I have narrowed the selection to the following. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Arcam AVR200 Outlaw 950/7100 Denon AVR3803/5 Denon DVD2900/2200 Speakers are a problem (too many choices and my preference is for the warm sound of my old Celestions) Have been told to audition the following: Axiom Aperion Acoustic Energy Energy Paradigm PSB Monitor Audio (speaker budget 1500-2000$) My preference is for musicality over in-your-face movie effects. Any suggestions are welcome.
