    Hi all, heres my set up,

    Amplifier : Rotel RSX-1057
    Blueray : Panasonic DMP-BD50
    Monitor : Sharp LCD 42'' 1080P (I will change soon. An old Panasonic plasma 65'' is comming home for free) i dont need 4k atm.

    Center : Boston 404v
    Column : Energy Pro Series 4.5
    Surround : Paradigm Monitor Series
    Subwoofer : Energy C8

    I know my speaker arent the best set up. The surrounds feel weak but they do what they need to... I gotta put theb ass down on the surround because you can heard some plastic! Horrible!!

    I really like my Pro series 4.5 for music and home theather. I know the set up is not the ''perfect'' match with the Boston as center. But im building the room, parts by parts...

    I am trying to find better surround in 40-80$ range used. I dont need something crazy. One question i am asking my self everytime.. Should i change both of my Pro series 4.5 to a pair of Boston... Or just change the Boston center and get an Energy center arround 80-140$ used.

    Thanks all, i will take all your advise. Also i would like to get some tip to improve sound in my weird room. (yeah there kids toys hehe).

    My english arent perfect... I am mainly french speaker.

    I would go with the speaker brand that has the sound you like the best! What brand sounds better to your ears? And there are many out there that do not even have what you have which is not bad. And if you only watch 1080p content it will look better on a 4K display vs a HD display. And 4K displays have come way down in price but it is your decision. I got my 4K display before my 4K blu-ray player and 1080p content looked really good on the 4K display. But hope that answered your speaker question. I see you posted pictures but I can not see what pictures you posted.

    Ive found a pair of Energy Connoisseur C-4 paired with a center Energy i dont remember the model and i dont want to move it... hehe
    Costed me 80$!!!! The guy dint know at all that both connoisseur are liste above 200$. And ive find they play better to my Energy pro series 4.5 so ive switched them. The connoisseur got a better sound stage and deeper bass as stereo!
