I finally did it, after months and months of listening and deliberation. We just ordered our 5.1 speaker system: Left/Center/Right: RBH 661-LSE Surrounds: RBH 44SE Sub: RBH 1010SEP (350 Watt) BTW total cost was about $5400 + shipping. We are new to high-end, but my intention is that we'll have these until we get carried out of our home feet first. They should arrive in about a month, but I've been assured that my Onkyo TS575x receiver will not adequately drive these speakers. If anyone is familiar with these speakers, do you have any suggestions on what electronics I should look at? I'd like to keep it simple, so the wife (and kids as they get a little older) can use the system. So far, I've kind of been attracted to the Rotel RMB-1075 5-channel amp, which I thought I might mate to a mid-level receiver used in this case as a pre-amp/processor/tuner. (My Onkyo has no pre-outs). Does this sound like a good strategy? I will try to get some home auditions of the electronics once the speakers arrive, so we can evaluate properly. But I'd like to have a short list developed beforehand so I don't drive the retailer crazy. Any suggestions are welcome and greatly appreciated.
