    Hi everyone;

    In the process of upgrading all my HT gear from the mix matched junk I've collected over the years. I have made some choices and was hoping yoiur experience could help me decide the best combination. Sadly where I live it's very hard to do A/B comparisons with any array of choices.

    Sub - Have chosen the SVS PB2-Plus based on all I have read here and other forums

    Reciever - Narrowed down to 3 so far, mainly on features but also on my experience and what I have read
    - Integra DTR 7.4
    - Onkyo 9.1
    - Denon 3805

    Speakers - I find this one tough because I have trouble finding someone who has a similar reciever and carries more than 1-2 brands I have an interest in. I've heard a ton in my price range, but so far have a preference towards:
    - totem
    - B&W 600 series (603F, 602R, 660C)
    - paradigm (Studio 60F etc)

    Recommendations on a combo of these, or anything I should go give a listem to would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Sounds actually pretty good. Speakers are a personal preference thing and those 3 brands are usually very good. I would gravitate towards Paradigm because if you can make a trip to Canada, they will run cheaper. I have an Onkyo but would recommend Denon as the newer Onkyos have this power protection scheme that limits watts/channel when all channels are equally driven.

    I'm a Denon convert as well...spilled Sprite into my 3802 two years ago, and it's never been the worse for wear.

    Now I test all of my gear with the Sprite test [​IMG]

    my advice would be to go nuts listening to as many speakers in as many places as you possibly can
