Fellow junkies, we've a new member, smiles1014, in need of our help and advice! I especially look to Rizzo and DigitalDoctor to help this man make an informed decision. Here is his request:
"I want some advice on speakers. I have purchased a Samsung UN55B8500 LED TV, Pioneer Elite BDP-23FD DVD, and a Pioneer Elite SC-27 A/V Receiver. Now that I am researching speakers, the tone I am getting is that you will only get the best sound depending on which speakers you buy, not the receiver. I am replacing a Denon 3801 receiver with Klipsch RF-5 fronts, RF-3 rears, RC-7 center, and RW-12 subwoofer that I have had for about 8 years. Is that old in speaker years, or would I be good to go and not spend thousands of more dollars on new speakers?
Guess that was the gist of my thread and question.
