I'm looking to update my entire system with in the next couple of months. Now I'm pretty new to the area so please excuse my inexperience/ignorance. I currently have a JVC 9010 receiver. I thought this was the "best" component in the world until I purchased my first digital optical cable. Stereo sound was great, but now watching movies in DTS overloads the receiver at fairly normal volumes. I most likely will replace this with the HK Avr525. This is not the question at hand (however any comments would be greatly appreciated, as I am not yet completely sure). For speakers I have a set of old technics that were given to me by dad. They were great for college parties, but aren't even close to cutting it for movies. I'm running a Polk PSW450 sub, which I intend on keeping (at least for the moment). I have the Bose VCS30 (vcs10 and two 161's), for the center and two surrounds. Originally I had planned on purchasing either the 601's or 701's to complete the set, thinking that the two outdated main's were the reason I could barely make out dialog in most movies I watch. But after a bit of research, I don't think I've uncovered one positive comment regarding any Bose products. So after scratching that plan all together, I am now considering a set up of Polk RTi 100's for fronts, 38's for surrounds, and a CSi30 for the center. I don't really want to spend more than $1500 but may be able to step up to $2k if the purchase is worth it. Also, the purchases will most likely be spread out over the net couple of months (unless I wait two months and make one big purchase). Should I purchase these items in any particular order? I was thinking of picking up the receiver first, then the fronts, followed by the center channel, then finally the rears. I've read a lot of great comments about Paradigm speakers but I have yet to see any price information. What price range would I be looking at for this set-up? Would it be worth it to postpone my purchase for a couple of months and go with these? All comments and insights would be greatly appreciated.
