I'm looking into buying a pair of used Lsi15 Tower speakers tomorrow for $550 out the door and I was curious if these are still a great speaker and would they be a major upgrade from Monitor70's?
I currently have this setup:
-Monitor70's as fronts
-CS2 center channel
-Monitor 60's for surrounds
-Energy EF-500 for rear surround backs
-HSU Research STF-1 subwoofer
I'm powering all of this with a Pioneer VSX-1121-k receiver...from research I've learned that this receiver probably couldn't handle the LSi15 Towers, so I thought about getting a separate amplifier to power them at 4ohm's. Would I be better off getting a 2-channel amp, such as Adcom's GFA-555 or a multi-channel amplifier (5 or 7) such as Adcom's GFA-7500 or Emotiva UPA-5/UPA-7?
Any help would be great, thanks!
