The Pioneer speakers with the BS41 will do a good job for you - I for sure will take
the BS41 and C21, over the Martin Logan/Paradigm smaller speakers. You are in for
an ear and eye opener, if you buy them >> Know need to be a so-called audiophile,
to enjoy the Pioneer speakers. For one on a tight budget the Dayton 1200, looks
like it might be a decent option to try. This would be a big step up for you.
I have the 41's and they are indeed an eye-opener, these will open your eyes even more, and on sale.

Re: 5.1 System Poll

Yeah, right now the larger BS41's are on sale at Newegg for $90/pair (I'll use them for front L/R).
The BS21's are on sale for $50/pair (I'll use as the rear surrounds).

According to the reviews, the C21 (center) often goes on sale for $50, so I'll wait around maybe a month and see if that happens. I guess the SW-8 sub also goes for $80 at times, so I'll wait and see on that too. If it doesn't drop soon, I'll just go with the Dayton sub.

So I'll get an all-new 5.1 set with the decent-sized BS41's up front for $270 total with the free shipping and no tax. If I wanted to, I could slightly downgrade to the BS21's front and back for only $230 total. I really don't think I can beat this - especially w/o buying used. I'm sure I will be more than satisfied.

Hands down, if I was up-grading and on a budget - I would buy these
and the center, for a real good up-grade. With the towers, no need for
stands, and you can take time to shop around for a sub. The (1) series
started it all >>> and now the (2) series for me, has taken that sound
quality to a higher level. Enjoy your speakers.

Speakers - MB Quart VS05, Boston VS260, Snell K7
Subwoofer - Mordaunt Short Aviano 7
Receiver - Tascam PAR-200, Pioneer VSX-30

I agree that they are probably worth the extra money, and I considered them. But I just figured that $380 was pushing my budget just a little too much and I had better stick with spending $270.


...plus I already placed the order.
