Well, income taxes came in and now I have a idea of what I can spend on some new speakers. I started a thread a while back, but now that I have a budget, I was hoping to get better suggestions. I need a center channel, 2 front, and 2 rear speakers. Maybe a subwoofer too, but I don't think a budget of $1000 would suffice good enough to include a sub, so that will most likely get putoff for now. For the rear speakers, I would really prefer in-the-wall speakers due to the design of the room and space provided. For the front speakers, I would like to go with a floor standing set of speakers due to the design of the front. About two thirds of the front wall is recessed starting from the left side, so an entertainment center will be built into the wall. With the design I'm going with, if I were to use bookshelf speakers, I wouldn't be able to have the speakers mounted perpendicular to one another as one would most likely be set back another couple feet. Any information or suggestions provide would be highly appreciated. And as a side note, I have a Sony receiver which I believe is a model str675 or str875 (or something similar to this). Also, where can I purchase the mentioned speakers? Thanks in advance!!
