Please forgive any layman's terms, or face-palming I might cause. I'm new to all this.
I've decided to invest in a decent speaker system. Right now I'm using some cheap Sony bookshelves I bought back in high school, a cheap Polk center channel, and some hand-me-down towers. All powered by a Pioneer VSX-552 700W 5.1 amp I bought a couple years ago.
I got a new job and want to upgrade, as I really like movies and very much love music. However, I can't drop the kind of cash all at once for what I want.
I've got 2 RP-280F's on the way, and eventually want to build up to a Reference Premiere 7.1 or 7.2 system consisting of
4 RP-280F's - 2 in front, 2 in back
1 RP-450C - Center channel obviously
2 RP-250S's - directly left and right
1-2 R-115SW - as there isn't a RP sub (*sigh*)
Some sort of receiver to be purchased later when I'll have the components to warrant the need of a 7.1/7.2 receiver.
I don't know if I want to do an Atmos system, but can add the elevation speakers later if I want; don't think I will.
My question is this: WHAT DO I BUY NEXT!?!?!??????
I was thinking the center channel, as I can still use my dad's towers (hand-me-downs) for the back L & R. Then the sub, then the other 2 RP-280F's, then finally the 2 RP-250's and the 7.1 receiver to finish it off.
FYI, my dad's hand-me-downs are 2 Synergistics S-62's. They're very decent speakers, but I think the Klipsch's will show them up.
I would love any kind of advice or input the community here might offer. I'm worried that I'm missing something obvious, and it will come back to bite me in the butt.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
