Hey guys I have what I hope is an easy question, but maybe its not, I did a quick search and couldn't quite find exactly what im looking for. So I dont know if home audio works the same as alot of other products but I find when looking at a product you get a to a point of X amount buys you a great piece of equipment but you start seeing very little gains until you get to say Y amount. Example: Say you find that, and im just spit balling numbers here, 2500 or 3000 bucks will get you a really great sound system at home. But things between that number up until about say, 5000 bucks you start seeing less noticable gains. Once you break past that 5k limit you see the next be step in product. With that being said, I could be wrong, I just dont know. I am reaching out for some advice to find that sweet spot of a really great sounding system. My space is a small, I can get dimension later, but think smaller 2 bed room apartment with a kitchen attached to the living room. I don't know if towers or book shelves would give better bang for buck, I can make both work I just need opinions. So to get to the meat and potatos I am trying to get the best bang for buck recommendations in that 2500 to 3000 range (give or take on both ends a little). I live in the DFW area of Texas (Dallas Fortworth). I have been to a couple of best buys and listed to the magnolia center speakers. I heard some MartinLogan Motion systems they seem to sell as a package. I thought they sounded really nice, I listend to some B&W HTM 6 and 700 speakers, again sounded really nice to me. Both locations really pushed me away from Definitive tech, which was the other option they carried. I didnt really get into receivers which I know very little about, they just seemed to point at what cost the most and said you need this.. This is something I am researching and learning so any tips or advice would be great. Anyways, Can you guys give me some advice of maybe other speakers or systems in my price range I should seek out and listen too? I see great reviews for KEF t305 and I think they look great but I haven't heard them yet, or what about ELAC, I keep hearing great things about ELAC, but again, have never heard them. Thanks in advance for any advice you can share with me.
