    Re: Upgrading audio, opinions welcome

    My only comment is that if you are going to invest the money in a new receiver, make sure you are getting what you really want and something that is suitable for the foreseeable future and will fit your future needs. I wish that a year ago, I'd followed my gut and bought the 3808. For another $300 I could have had a better system with 4 HMDI inputs instead of 3, full networking capability, etc.. But since I've spent $1000 or so on the 2808, I'm now stuck with my investment for the foreseeable future. It's better to wait a little longer to get the couple hundred bucks for the next step up than buy now and be sorry later.

      The power's what's really noticeable, imo. I've spent plenty of time listening to each, & I've been pretty surprised as to the amount of difference for such a [seemingly] small change in the actual rating (though you have to consider that it is more than a 10% jump).

      I don't mean to say that the 1909's terrible--I just think that the improvement going to the 23 is a lot more than the $200 difference would suggest (unlike, as I mentioned, the $350 one between the 2309 & 2809. You've got 4 speakers to buy & your current receiver is alright. I'd wait 'til you've got everything else and either something in the technology changes dramatically or you want to spend a good chunk of change on a big upgrade.

        Thats whats killing me now, where to start. I brought my better Polk center down from the attic(really to big for my tv stand) and hooked it up today, Sounds worlds diff, most of my problem was the little center I went to.

        Honestly, Im pretty happy with the sound, so the sub might be the first buy.

          I usually take the incremental approach. While I fully recognize the wisdom of the earlier comments urging you not to cheap out on one component and having that weak link mess up the A/V quality, when I upgrade I prefer to concentrate my spending on the best single component I can justify with my budget. Otherwise you're compromising on all the items in your system, and next year you'll be wanting to upgrade at least one of them again. Of course, sometimes you can get more than one component at very good quality, but I'd make sure you concentrate on getting everything you want in at least one component, even if it means living for a year with speakers, for example, that don't do the receiver justice. It'll still be an improvement, and overall the better components will be "keepers" for a lot longer.

            I agree.

            One of my issues with the system was sound lately, and I think it was the sucky center. Before I bought my new tv in april, I was using a larger and more expensive Polk center.After the tv, I had to buy a smaller cheaper one because of space, which Ive been unhappy with.

            After some thinking last night, I found a way to use the better Polk center then reran the Onkyo calibration tool. Sounds MUCH better, now my sub just sucks. Im torn now whether to buy a $700 sub at BBuy or get an SVS. If I opt to buy the sub somewhere else, I guess Ill buy some DT 1000 series (L/C/R) from BBuy.

              The SVS subs are really good.

              And so is their customer service - when we got our sub delivered, it had been somewhat mishandled during transport. The result was that the magnet wasn't attached to the speaker anymore. One call later and a new sub was on the way... We also managed to destroy one of the speakers when we moved to our new office, again one call later and replacement parts were on the way.

              I'd say go for SVS...

                  agreed, especially with speakers, since they last longer than anything else in the system.
