I have been chatting with another member about uor similar HK recievers and in the process found out that my Bose are not as good as I thought. For me the sound great but I can only compare to the other systems I have had. Previously only a Phillips HT in a Box. It was $300 for the reciever and the speakers and sub. A great starter system, but then I moved up to a Hk AVR 230, and the Bose AM 10 system. He refered me to several speakers systems of similar size, for half the price in most cases. I don't want to believe that I could achieve better sound than my Bose for half the price. So tell me guys, could I really do that, should I sell them and buy some Athenas, Take 5s, and others, or should I keep them until it is time for my next upgrade. Any comments are appreiciated.
