    Hi,

    Currently I have below setup.

    5.1 (with Bi-amp)
    Receiver : Yamaha RX-V677
    Front L&R : JBL ES80 (Connected as Bi-Amp)
    Front Center: Polk CS2 Series II
    Surround: Polk Monitor 40
    Sub Woofer: Klipsch R-12SW

    So far sound is OK but not very impressive hence I am trying to see if any upgrade here will help.
    Also note that I have different brands of speakers for front L/R/C , not sure if its a problem.

    as of now I am kind of happy with below components.
    - JBL ES80
    - Klipsch R-12SW

    So trying to figure out what would be best value upgrade to make sound great.

    I am looking at SONY STR-DN1080 to replace the receiver and see if Center speaker can be replaced with any other JBL brand speaker?

    What you guys think? is these upgrade would help or any other suggestion?

    'So far sound is OK but not very impressive' - often no bad thing as 'impressive' sound can become pretty fatiguing over the course of a Movie or Album!

    'I have different brands of speakers for front L/R/C , not sure if its a problem' - ideally you have three matched cabinets (not simply same brand), though that is not always possible.

    Room/Room Layout - how close to the 'idea' is your room configured? 5.1 Speaker Setup Guide
