Audio Geeks, Need suggestions please! - January 27, 2010, 11:01 AM

So Iím looking into upgrading my current home theater speakers and possibly receiver. Currently have a HDMI switching mid range reciever (Sony STRDG920), with infinity Primus P152 2 way front and rear speakers, with a 3 way infinity Primus PC350 center channel.... and a very exenpsive B&W 10 inch sub. I donít want to get the most expensive speakers on the market but I do want to upgrade. Iím a novice when it comes to whatís good (for audio) but I have my opinions about certain vendors as does anyone else. So I'm looking for some advice about what you like and dont like, etc, etc. That being said, here's a couple questions that come to mind first.
  • What speakers and receiver are you using at home and what to you like and dislike about them?
  • Would you buy them again? If not what would you buy instead?
  • How are your speakers lowís, midís and highís?
  • What wattage speakers did you buy?
  • How much did you spend?
  • Where did you buy?

Any recommendations....or warnings, or whatever would be great, thanks!

Love my AVR 5307 other then the fact that it randomly shuts off. Never been able to figure it out but it's only for about 2 seconds so it doesn't really affect much.

I'm running a Yamaha RX-V861 (http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/p...l?CNTID=547598 ). I picked it up when Tweeter was liquidating everything, so I only spent $350 for this $1k unit.

Speakers- I picked up a boxed 5.1 surround system at Best Buy. Speakers are made by Klipsch. Set is normally $400, but I got it around xmas for $230. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Klipsch+...&skuId=9388879

Not sure if I'd buy the receiver again. Not that it's bad or anything, I just don't want to spend $1k on it. I want simple. Just give me a 5.1/7.1 receiver w/ a few HDMI plugs and stuff on it and I'm happy. A lot of the fancy doo-dads they have nowadays are worthless to me.

The speakers sound pretty good. The sub is small, but still packs a punch. Haven't been able to crank the speakers up yet, don't want to bother the neighbors.
