    I have a Technics SA-DX1050 receiver with Technics stereo speakers. This receiver supports 5.1 and I'd like to add the remaining speakers to make this a reality.

    What do you recommend for center, subwoofer, and two rear satelites?

    budget- like to keep it under $500, but can go over.

    room size is about 14 square feet, in an apartment. Viewing distance to TV is 8 feet. Space is limited, speakers should be fairly compact.

    I've heard good things about Ascend Acoustics but I don't have any particular brand preference right now.

    Also, is it feasible for the rear speakers to be wireless?

    This is a UK sight and i doubt anyone here knows Acsent. Anyway, some general advice would be to move the Technics stereo speakers to the rear and get a matching set of front three speakers. Using a different centre with your fronts will muck up the front soundstage.

    Wireless speakers are pretty new technology right now and pretty dire too. Avoid. :thumbsdow
