Hi- first post! I've finally gotten around to building up a home theater system and could use some help with the speakers. Right now, I'm running old Boston bookshelf speakers off of a Denon AVR-3300, nothing else, strictly two-channel. I would like to get at least new mains and a center and use the Bostons as surrounds at the minimum, or get 5 speakers new. I also need a sub. I need to keep this cheap- like $700-800 tops, incl. the sub. I have B&W Matrix 803s for my music system, so the musicality of this cheap home theater is not really an issue- as long as it doesn't sound horrible, I'm fine, but it must sound acceptable for home theater- able to reproduce sound effects, explosions, etc. I've been doing some research and found a few possibilities: Energy Take 5.2 system, incl. sub for about $700, but using eXL (I think that's what they're called) for the mains. Velodyne CHTS- $250 for the 5 speakers, just need a sub. JBL NSP-1- $500 for the 5 speakers, need a sub. Polk RT10s- $70/pr. at Circuit City, get 6 at $210 and buy a sub (don't sell them individually). What do you all think? I haven't researched too many other brands- the KEF stuff I saw at one dealer is too expensive, haven't looked at the low end B&W stuff (probably still too expensive). The SVS sub piqued my interest- $369 and I can use my Adcom amp to power it, esp. if I can get it to run bridged (not sure if I can do this, gotta check).
