I have been doing research over the past 3 months on a 3 zone music/home theater set up for my house. It has been dropped now to 2 zones because of the openness between the family/living room and the kitchen. This post is more about AV speaker options: For the AV reciever I am going with either the Yamaha A1000 or Pioneer Elite VSX 33. Here are the various speaker brands I have been looking at: -Triad -Speakercraft -Sonance -Martin Logan -Proficient -Definitive Tech -B&W Anyone have experience with any of these and if so how would you rate this list, i.e., which would be the top two best options? I personally am leaning toward a Def Tech set-up. The family room is going to have the center in the ceiling (directly over the wall mounted TV, it is one of those that is actually angled out toward the room), 2 floors for the L&R, and two ceiling mounted speakers for the rears (with pivoting directional tweeters).
