I recently purchased a new AVR (Elite VSX01) and am looking for an inexpensive pair of surrounds to try 7.1. I was browsing my local CL and came across a couple sets that seem like good deals. Found a set of black
RT-10's for $100 and a set of maple Monitor 50's for $150. My current speakers are LS50 mains, CS350 center, RT600i surrounds and a SVS 25-31PC+ sub. I know that mixing between the lines is not the best but I have been very pleased with my current setup. To me the RT-10's look like a better match since they have similar tweeters but the Monitor 50's look to be a better deal. I'm not sure though how the silk tweeters in the 50's would blend with my current set-up.
Any thoughts/comments would be much appreciated.
