Greetings from New Zealand. First timer and new to home theatre world but catching the bug fast. A friend is travelling overseas soon and is selling a pair of Sony Extended Series X70ED speakers (floorstanders) at a good price. They're newish here and retail for about $US1000/pair. Does anyone know what they're like? I've searched audioreview.com and others to no avail. They will replace an ageing Bose sats and passive sub. Would then buy a Sony centre and rear speakers. Have a Denon 1602 receiver. The only problem I might have in terms of budget etc is that I'm getting married a little down the track and should probably get this (new speakers) done and over with quickly before being reminded about “other priorities”. Any guidance would help.
