Home Theater Speakers Opinions...

Hey y'all.

New to the forum, so its nice to meet all of you. Thanks for the help in advance.

I have an older stereo that I absolutely love. I started building it when I was still in high school in the late 90s. My tastes in music have not changed much. I still like to listen to classical, jam bands, reggae, and alternative. Kind of a hodge podgery as well as home theater utilization.

Well way back when, I had a yamaha RV-1105 powering a set of Klipsch SF-1s as my mains, an SC-1 as my center, and a KSW-12 as the sub, and a few (I am embarrassed to say this) boom box speakers as my rears. HAHA.

Well, over the years, I changed some parts. Namely, the rears. I replaced them with some older Boston Acoustic HD-7s that I borrowed from my father.

Following a bad lightning strike that took out my Yamaha, I found a good deal and bought a Marantz SR7001.

And then I hooked up a Monster - HDP2500.


Well this black friday, I noticed a set of KF-28s at Best Buy for 224 a piece. Judging from build quality, appearances etc they seem like a newer bigger version of the SF-1s. (granted when the SF-1s were built, klipsch was not at best buy.) After ordering them I understand it the kf-28s are a "best buy" exclusive, which honestly has me slightly concerned. Did they sacrifice build quality or components for the sake of mass production. But I digress.

My plan is to put my old beloved SF-1s in the rears. Obviously put the kf-28s up front. Return my HD7s to my father. And if he isn't using them, put them as sides on a 7.1 setup at my next house.

What are your thoughts on this setup.

I know its not ideal, and definitely not as fancy as what all of you are working with, but I am just trying to get a good quality setup that will last me a while. Like my little SF-1s have. Thoughts?

Thanks
