    Hello everyone I have Energy Encore speakers run by Yamaha RXV800 love them but I'm thinking about buying another system for my family room it's 20x20 with cathedral ceiling and hardwood floors. My budget is about $2000 for speakers and receiver.Hope someone can give me something to think about.

    an ascend acoustics package (either 5 cbm 170s or 3 for the front with a pair of 200s for the rear)w/ vtf-2 sub and a NAD 752 (or 761) reciever.
    the speakers will work fine with many different recievers, but you will notice a difference with a cleaner, high current reciever like the NADs.
    the speaker and sub package would run about $1100-1200 while the reciever will run from $600 (refurbd 761) to $900 (brand new 752).



    btw, what was the budget of your other set-up, if you don't mind me asking?

    Hi Paul, I bought the Encores for about $1050 shipped with the matching stands and the receiver for about $550. I did alot of searching to get these prices. I do love this system but am willing to check out something different for my other room. Bryan[​IMG]
