Hi,
I have a denon 2804 receiver with definitive technology pro 100 speakers. I
would like to replace the satellites with a set of towers for music. Any
recommendations? something that will enhance my music but still match the
surrounds for movies? 1000 or less would be nice. thanks in advance for any
advice.

Hi,
Basically New England vs. California speakers. They have very distinct
characteristics. For Music, how about Polk, Boston Acoustics? Stick with
brand name.
You have to watch impedance, SPL, and frequency response. For that
budget I am sure you have quite a few choice. My towers are Mirage pair.
And don't get carried away with how many speakers are in the enclosure.
It's not the case of the more, the better.
Audition as many as you can and good shops will let you try them in your
place before you decide to buy. Good luck,
Tony

Re: speaker advice



I agree with Tony  -  listen and buy what sounds best. One consideration
is
your space limitations. Also there's the SAF to consider (spouse
acceptance
factor!!!).

I also would not worry about matching the surrounds. It's the center
that you
need to match. The surrounds don't carry enough information to
make all that
much of a difference - and none at all at your price
point.

Some other considerations: Energy, Magnapan (see cautions re: space and
SAF),
NHT. Here's a link to cnet suggestions:

Have fun. Nothing better than shopping for new gear.

Klipsch rc-52 or 62?

Re: speaker advice



I've not heard them so I really can't make a recommendation. I would
lean to
getting the one that matched the fronts, assuming you're going
with Klipsch
there too; e.g. 52 with 52, 62 with 62. There's a reason
Klipsch designed them
that way. (Hopefully it's not only a marketing
reason.) I usually don't care for
the sound of ported speakers,
especially as the center. But unless you invite me
over for a movie
(I'll bring the popcorn!) it won't be me listiening to them.

Ask if you can take them home for a weekend trial. Or if they have a
100% return
policy.

Have fun.
