I'm fairly new to the Home Cinema scene, coming from an old Hi-Fi background. Having read quite a few reviews, I have come to the conclusion the AVR300 is probably for me with my extensive music collection. I have recently had a demo of the AVR300 with a set of Cabasse Xi speakers which sounded ok, but got the impression he had an 'agenda' trying to sell the speakers. I'm having another demo at another shop and he was suggesting listening to Monitor Audio Silver RS speakers. Any suggestions on listening to other speaker packages, in fact any comments at all ?
