Hi all first post here, so please go easy on me. I currently have a HD 56 inch RCA, Denon 1802, running a pair of crappy Aiwa mains(leftover from the old home theater), self powered Aiwa sub, 2 blose(bose) rears and a Cerwin-vega ctr(better than the old Aiwa ctr). As you can see this set-up needs work Plan is this Ctr is ok for now, replace mains then rears then sub, then ctr. My room is 25 x 15, listening area is 17 x 15. Listen to music vs ht, 40/60. Here is what I am considering... 1. Swan – Diva – 2.1 or 4.1 2. Paradigm – Moniter 3 or 5 3. Home theater Direct – level 2 or 3 4. Asperion Audio - 5. NOrh 4.0s 6. NHT Superones 7. B&W (not sure which ones) 8. Axiom M3tis Looking to keep cost down below $300(yes divas are a bit more), looking at open boxes possibility there. I will be going to listen to the Paradigms, B&Ws and NHTs this weekend, but won't have the opp to hear the others. Looking for feedback exp with any of these suckers, opinions, and suggestions on my plan of action. In the end I want to spend max $1,500-2k on a speaker set-up. Thanks in advance for you feedback.
