    We're gonna need more info. But, offhand, I would say sell both the KLH and Sony speakers and look into some good retail brands like Paradigm, Energy, Klipsch, or some good Internet brands like Ascend Acoustics, Home Theater Direct, etc.

    If you start w/ a decent pair of mains, you can work your way up over time.

    I would say get rid of what you have. Depending on your budget, I'd look at the JBL Northridge series and Home Theater Direct. If you just want a pair of new speakers in the $200 range, look at the JBL N38s. They can be found for less than $200 a pair online, but you have to add shipping on top of that. If you want a 5 speaker package for around $200, look at the JBL NSP1 package.

    Hope this helps.

    Sell them. Then keeping in mind that speakers are THE most important part of your ht/music, save up and get something that you will be happy with for years to come. Skimp on processors,dvd player etc. but not speakers.
