5.1 Audio sometimes lacks clarity - do I need to upgrade my amp or speakers?


Active Member

I have a Pioneer VSX-C301 Amp and Pioneer Satellites/Sub bought as a package about 3 years ago. My room is approx 14" square.

Overall they give a good 5.1 experience for me. However, I find that dialogue sometimes becomes lost in the mix, resulting in me having to increase the volume, and then reduce it again to avoid deafening myself the next time something loud occurs.

I've increased the level of the centre speaker slightly, and switched on the amps dialogue enhancement feature (if this is off dialogue is awful).

On a modest budget (say £250), can anyone please suggest which of the amp or speakers I should upgrade to gain better audio performance in this case?

Thanks in advance.
