Morning Folks. Long story made short. I used to have a guy (you know, everyone has a go to guy) for all my hi-fi, home theatre type questions. Well, i no longer have my guy but hoping i can find many "guys and gals" now that know this stuff way better than i do. I would rate myself above a newbie but way below an expert but i'm always looking to learn, understand and figure stuff out.

Current setup: Don't have a dedicated theatre room, but have/want decent sound in my living room.
Room Size: 16' Wide X 22' Long X 8' Ceilings
TV: 60" Panasonic Plasma - will be looking to replace with 70-80" QLED or OLED in the future possibly
AVR: Denon AVR-X4100W - Currently running in 5.1.2 mode - This will stay for now
Fronts: Energy e:xl25-B1
Centre: Mirage OM-C3
Surround: Energy Connoisseur C2
Front Height: Russound 8" ceiling - These will stay for now
Sub: Atlantic Technology 422SB

Looking to slowly upgrade my living room and having hard time trying to choose products. My WAF might be better with White Speakers
Front Floorstanding options: Paradigm Monitor SE 6000F, ELAC Debut 2.0 DF62, Fluance Signature 2.0, Klipsch?
Center: Would match centre to fronts but like: Paradigm Monitor SE 2000C, ELAC Debut 2.0 DC62
Surrounds: Because of my layout, thinking about bipolars on back wall: Paradigm Surround 1 or 3, Klipsch R-402s
Sub: Looking at SVS PB-1000 or Monolith THX 10

Anyways, i said my story would be short so i'll stop there. Thanks for listening and any help much appreciated.

Welcome! I'm new here as well.
TV: 60" Panasonic Plasma
I still have my trusty Pioneer Plasma from 2007. Knock on wood, it has never given me a problem. But I'm looking hard at bigger/better as I watch the prices continue to plummet.

Have to come up with a story that says it died because it won't.....It's been rock solid and used a lot.

I just bought the Paradigm 800f towers and the 600c center channel. All I can say it WOW. It doesn't seem to matter what type of music I play or movie I watch, these new Paradigms sound amazing. I use them with an old 12 Mirage sub, the PSB Imagine XB and PSB Imagine S. But mostly, since I've owned the Paradigms I listen to my system in 2 speaker with the sub on mode. Amazing.
