I'm familiar with the site, but new to the forum. Straight to the point then...
Please note : I live in South Africa, therefore certain brands are not available to me/hard to get.
Equipment thus far :
Optoma HD20 1080p projector
Denon AVR 1910 amplifier
Sony BDP 360 player (want to upgrade to 370 or maybe 570)
Mission 733 speakers (Bought in 1995!) - For now this is my speaker setup, hence my dilemma - I need a speaker package!
What would be the best suited speakers to pair with my Denon 1910?
My room is medium sized now, but in the next year i'm moving to a large room.
I plan to use the system 90% + for home cinema.
I like mainstream titles with action, etc, so called "special effects" movies. (My music taste is also pop/rock etc.) Titles like Transformers, Matrix, LOTR, Star Wars, Iron Man, F+Furious, etc make up a part of my collection of BluRays.
I chose the Denon 1910 for its character as described in the review. I don't like something that is too much to the sharp side. I prefer strong impressive bass with yet a detailed high end. The 1910 just blew away the competition I listened to/read about and I'm very happy with the type of sound it gives.
Now I need speakers. I'm thinking of 1st buying floorstanders for the front and a centre + sub later, and finally the rears. Firstly the fronts...
Availble brands/models that i'm looking at in my area of South Africa :
PSB Image T5
The above fall in my budget, also I can listen to them with some trouble. The B&W's may be tough to audition.
As mentioned I like strong bass. As far as I can gather the MX5's have massive impact, but how will it pair with the 1910? Should I go with the slightly more detailed Boston's and rely on the sub for bass? Or what about the PSB's? They have more impact than the B&W's, especially for home cinema.
Lastly, I can get a set of Mission Elan floors 2nd hand for 1/3rd of the new price.
PLEASE HELP!!! THIS IS PROVING TO BE A VERY DIFFICULT PROCESS FOR A BEGINNER LIKE MYSELF!!!
B&W 685 or Monitor Audio BX2 would be a good starting point. Don't forget good quality speaker cable such as Chord Rumour 2 terminated preferably in banana plugs. You can add the complimentary speakers to make a 5.1 surround sound system later on if you choose.
