Recommendations for Home Theater Upgrade


Novice Member
Hi all!

Currently remodeling my house with new tile flooring and planning to upgrade my home theater setup as well. Previously had:

1x CS8040HD Center
2x BP8040ST towers
2x SR8040BP rears
PNF8500 series plasma
BDI cabinet (8227 I think)
Marantz SR6007 receiver

Would like to keep the BDI cabinet with center channel speaker and rear speakers. Looking for alternatives to the 8040ST towers that are more sleek. Either on-wall or in-wall lefts and rights. Possibly adding in a sub too. For TV I'd like 80"+ and open to suggestions. Will wall mount. For the receiver I'm open to continuing to use it and run the HDMI directly to the new TV as opposed to getting a new one. Would like to hear pros and cons.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

If you're changing your front left and right, you should also consider changing to a centre that matches them. Ideally your front three should be the same or at least a close match.

If you want to keep your existing centre you could take a look at something like this which is the same brand: On-Wall Speakers
