Here's the before...before the new HD components and the new HD set top box get here. Those Bose 401's (front L and R speakers) are about 20 years old and sound great still!

Oh ya...the TV...it's a Hitachi 42 inch HD Plasma, HDMI, blah blah blah...even with the basic connections to the direcTV it looks pretty snazzy.

Snazzy: Old folks word for "all that"

Speaker suggestions?

You're right....the TV is really something....the HD DVD came yesterday and after hook up with the HDMI it's like looking out a window.

I have some flagship Kenwood speakers from the early seventies that are approaching forty years old and they still sound excellent. =P The amp that came with them, unfortunately, is on the border of needing new caps in the PSU as it buzzes until it warms up...I love the sound of the setup. Sometimes oldschool is better than the new stuff, just depends.

Like acoustats, quad, dahlquists, ar-9/90, allisons,
polk sda series, klipschorn/lascala/cornwalls, old jbl's, infinity line source, rs series,klh 9 electrostats, magnepan tympani, bic tippany, ohm A and F, mcintosh x factor series, bertagni electroacoustics speakers or bes, to name a few...
New doesn't always mean better, depending on the technology and engineering.
Lots of great new designs but many old school that is still way ahead of it's time like ESS OSKAR HEIL ribbon drivers like the AMT SERIES and line source. The infinity EMIT, EMIM drivers are still hard to duplicate. Not impressed with the newer cmmd design. Any of the old higher models of polk and infinity will blow away by a mile the newer polks and infinity which can't even compare. KLH went from high end to low end! Bic reinvented itself, while KLIPSCH being the oldest remain unchanged except in the ht area...Bose degenerated in it's models and never adapted to modern driver/crossover technology, Allison and acoustat died, but acoustat was revived, AR on the other hand became like BIC. Magnepan and OHM downsized their range of designs while ESS went out of business except another manufacturer continued their design under ESS CONNOISSEUR SERIES which is ultra high end from $6k to $50k models using the famed oskar heil ribbon drivers.
