My HT is roughly 14 X 17 X 9 and is used 100% for movies. I'm completely updating the room and for audio moving from 5.1 to 7.1. The new receiver is likely to be the Onkyo HT-RC270.
I definitely need one new set of speakers for surrounds since I only have 5 speakers now. The current speakers are all a bit old - Polk RT8 for the font and CS400i in the center, Energy EFX for the surrounds and Klipsch KSW 100 for the sub. I'd kind of like to get away from the floor standing front and go with bookshelf speakers instead.
I've had the opportunity to listed to the TSi200, which I'm told sounds very similar to the Monitor 40, and the RTia3. Personally, I couldn't hear enough difference between these two speakers to justify the price difference.
So on to my question. With the excellent value on the monitor 40's I'm considering doing these all around (7 of em). Considering the room size, receiver, old speakers do you think this is a good or bad plan?
