    Good match with new Marantz SR7005?

    After several years of faithful service, my great but outdated Yamaha DSP-A1 is being retired to my daughter's bedroom (she's happy). Got a new AV Receiver, the Marantz SR 7005, for a great price...$999.00 My Klipsch Heresy IIIs will probably need an update as well.

    Any recommendations for good speaker floorstanding speakers? About $1200 to $1500 per?

    If you like the Klipsch, try the Heresy with the Marantz, you could put the Heresy on surround duty and look for a center and mains in the Reference series. Or, if you have the room look for some Cornwall II and use one of your Heresy for a center.

    For smoother horns and a much fuller bass response JBL has a Studio series that is good.

    Dynaudio has the DM series you might give a listen to but I'm not sure where the price range begins on them.

    I'm not aware of any magic combo with the Marantz it still comes to personal preference, what type of sound you enjoy.
