    Hi,

    My problem is that I am inheriting:
    - two pairs of Bose 301 Series II speakers - yes, the old ones in the wooden Cabinet
    - A Krell KSA-200 amp (2-channel)
    - matching Krell Pre-amp
    - Denon Universal CD Player

    I have thought through the whole thing, and the ideal setup seems to be:

    1) Home Theatre system
    Denon 2805 or Onkyo 702 as receiver, Bose 301 as front speakers, Bose 301 as surround speakers, then to buy a centre speaker and subwoofer. Question is what centre speakers or subwoofers will fit with this combination? Should I dump the Bose speakers and get a matching HT set at a reasonable price? Do I shoot for another two rear surround speakers to get 7.1?

    2) Audio System
    Connected to A/B speaker output for the Denon so I can share the player, but attaching both the Krell pre-amp and KSA-200 to a much higher grade pair of speakers. Will use this system for music only

    Any comments, words of advice please?

    I would dump the Bose (they hold there value quite well) on ebay and but some nice new ones. There is a special price on Cantons speakers at the moment in the speaker power buys.:D

    Do you mean universal DVD player not CD player?

    If the denon is a cd player you could wire it up to the Krell and then use a switch box (puts on flameproof suit) for the speakers between the AV amp and the Krell.

    You're right it's a CD player! It's pretty old, but supposedly in perfect condition
