Im trying do decide on a decent pair of tower speakers to connect to my HT, I'm not sure witch direction to go. I'm about to purchase a Yamaha receiver to power my system. I'm planning on using my Bose center and surround speakers for now, till I can upgrade those to. I'm also looking for a quality sub to add as well. My budget is around about $1500 for the whole setup. Any suggestions and commitments would be appreciated. Thanks

I've seen quite a few people on this forum who say they own them, but it would probably help if you posted this in the speaker section. ;)

As for speakers, Its best to voice match all 5 or 7 channels. I have a personal preference for Paradigm, especially their Studio line and Signature line if you can afford it. Its probably the best bang for the buck. For $1500 you may want to look at Paradigm Monitor 7, which run about $800 a pair and that would leave money to burn for a nice center channel, dipole surrounds will run about $500 a pair. As for the sub, I would skip on that untill you have extra $$ to burn. The monitor 7 should provide adequate bass.

And a Yamaha would be a superb choice, last years top of the line Aventage models are going for about half price.
Thanks! I never once though about looking at paradigm, I figured the would be to expensive. I'll definitely check them out. And I wasn't sure about the Yamaha receiver, I first looked at Denon, and Onkoyo but they both seem to have there share of issues with the hdmi dropping off and fw issues.

Right now, I'm running Studio 60 on an older Yamaha Flagship and it sure is grand. I can't speak for the latest Denon. But some of their past units, I found the sound a bit not to my liking; but it wasn't enough for me to totally put them out of the realm of possible ownership.
I moved this thread to the Speakers forum - as 8086 pointed out, it should get more directed responses here.
If all you have is $1500, I would get a good Left, Right, and center now. Worry about surrounds and subwoofer later. Honestly, I could sell my surrounds and sub and never really miss it that much.
Any suggestions on a good center and front speakers for a reasonable price?
I'll check in to them, thanks
Here is one review to get you started. The monitor 7 and monitor 9 are almost identical.
You can find lots of great used stuff and your budget will go farther if your willing to go that route Craig's list ,audiogon are great to check out. Others may have great options on used speakers even store demo units can help save some money. I'm sure most members will admit they don't pay retail.
Any suggestions on brand or model?
I have an all klipsch setup. They say you love or hate them just so you know mine are the reference line,I also have some older energy speakers which I always liked. Just listen to them if at all possible before buying maybe even if its a slightly different model then what you may buy and others here maybe able to tell you if they are similar or not.
RTi a5 towers x2 $800 ($400ea)
RTi a3 rear $400 for pair
CSi a6 center x1 $400

Total $1600
