Question...

Earlier I was talking about what I should upgrade in my system, and now I am still wondering...

It appeared as though it made the most sense to upgrade my speakers first, however now I am not sure what speakers to get.

I would really like to keep it 7.1
Right now I have a set of low end Onkyo Speakers, and an Onkyo sub.

What should I buy?????

Personally I was thinking about buying the Epos 5.1 ELS-3 system (comes with the Epos ELS Sub), and then one more Epos ELS-3. However I am not sure on the quality of the Sub.

The other option I was thinking about before was just buying one pair of Epos M-5s, and maybe an M-8, and slowly upgrading, but I really think I wan't a 7.1 (NOW ).

Is Epos the way to go??
Or are there other Speakers or a Sub that is better??
I would like the whole 7.1 (speakers and sub) for under $2000! Any Recomendations?

Re: Question...

Are those really better?? I mean can a $99 speaker compare to a $300 speaker?? And the sub really doesn't seem as good.

Also I need them all to be bookshelf size.

My Current First Choice Is:
(6) ELS-3 --- $987
(1) ELS-3C --- $300
(1) ELS-Sub --- $700

Total (After Discount) --- $1829

Quite possibly but you need to go and listen in order to decide.

Bob Reina said of the Primus 150 "...it sounded like a $1000/pair speaker." and I think you would be surprised by the Infinity PS212.

6 - Infinity Primus P162 $660
1 - Infinity Primus PC350 $220
1 - Infinity PS212 $370
Total $1250
