    Default front speaker upgrade

    Trying to decide on what to upgrade front speakers to. On advice from others, I decided to pass up the offer on the newegg monitor 70s a few days ago and instead purchased a used pioneer 1018 receiver 130wpc x 7 with preouts instead. Right now I have r50s as my fronts. I have someone in line to buy them at 100 dollars for the pair. Should I go ahead at get rid of them and by a set of the monitor 60s at newegg, curently with a promo code I can get the cherrys for 109 a piece, or should I wait till another deal comes along for the monitor 70s are maybe a higher line of the polk floorstanding? Even if I do wait for something other than the 60s, should I go ahead and unload these r50s, only a year old, now anyway? Not too many bites on them so my fear is if I wait to unload them, then maybe no takeers. Any advice would help. Thanks.

    I would sell the 50's. You can do much better. Good job on buying the Pioneer receiver, that will make a good pre amp down the road if you decide to go higher end with speakers.

    Since you have a receiver with pre-outs I suggest at least the Monitor 70's and get an external amp when your budget allows for it.

    The Monitor 60's are nice speakers that can be run off any decent AVR and sound good. But if you can add an amp, the Monitor 70's, RTis or LSi's are much better in that order. It is all what you can afford.
