    I started the upgrade few weeks ago. I had an old kenwood prologic separate system with JBL front floor standing speakers and Bose double cubes in the rear.
    This is what I got now
    Receiver-Harman Kardon-AVR500
    Amp-Harman Kardon Sinature 2.1( Five channel)
    Fronts- Infinity IL-60
    Center- Infinity IL-36c
    Sub_ infinity IL-120S
    TV-61 in HDTV
    Rear- bose double cubes with stands and bass module.

    I think its time to say goodbuy to bose forever.
    What rears shall I buy which will match my system.
    Also since I will use two channels of the Signature amp for the rears.
    (1) Is it a good idea to use my old JBLs as the rears. They are awesome sounding floor standing speakers with two 8" woofers.
    (2)Or do i need something which is specifically made for rears.
    (3) Or do I leave the bose ( they sound allright to me!! Honestly before coming here I thought bose is a good brand, but after reading a lot of posts I have changed my mind)

    Girish, i would offer to buy your bose from you to use as my surrounds. I would keep them. only issues arise if you listen close to ref levels cause Im not sure they can handle the power needed, and also if you listened to multichannel music, they dont sound that good.

    id keep them.

    PS you do not need "specifically designed 'rear' speakers. all rear speakers are are speakers to the 'rear' of you. the best setup of course is to have 5+ of the exact same speaker all around.
