I am looking to upgrade my current 5.1 HT setup. It has the following components:
1 Def Tech Pro Center 1000
2 Def Tech Pro Monitor 800 front speakers
4 Def Tech Pro Monitor 60 surrounds
1 SVS SB 2000 sub
Sony STR-DN860 AVR
It is in a rented, smallish 25sqm living room. I’m thinking of replacing the front speakers with 2nd hands I saw online($500 Tannoy 635, $300 Polk Audio RT400 or $490 TSi400) and making the Pro Monitor 800s as 2 of the 4 surrounds. Are these worth the trouble or should I replace the AVR instead?
I’m looking for something long-term that would still be usable when I move to a bigger place. Any feedback is highly appreciated.
