Not for you .. but if someone with a lesser budget comes across this thread.

How about something unconventional?
...like Sony CS series..

Zero Fidelity has a review of the bookshelves.. which are the rear in this set ..


The included Sony subwoofer is the weakest point.. can sell it away and upgrade when you find something better.

My budget is super low also leh. My 5 2nd hand mission LX speakers cost less than $600 total. Just that I spent more on the receiver and subwoofer. The ceiling/atmos speakers if I add any will be the most not-worth-it. That's why I take so long still haven't done it.

Based on how much I spent on normal speakers obviously budget would be close to the price of entry level bookshelf speakers. Cannot be I spend $500 on normal speakers and I spend 5k on atmos right? Haha

i have already lost track of what you are looking for.

have you settled on front pair and atmos? or still asking for suggestions for both?

Ok just sharing again... I read on forums that many people seem to like the sound of svs prime elevation speakers for atmos effect.

So I looked up the specs and it says it has 87db/ watt sensitivity and frequency range of 55hz to 25khz. So that is very similar to a bookshelf speaker. Most other satellite speakers have much more limited range starting from 100hz and higher.

Problem is... svs elevation may be too expensive for most people. So maybe we can enjoy similar atmos performance if we can find other satellite speakers that also have similar frequency range.

Hope experts here can tell me if I'm wrong.

what forum siah, svs for HT can never go wrong.

i'm not sure you are looking to upgrade or buy atmos, if you scroll back there are plenty options mentioned.

this list are lower cost than svs

Oh ok thanks jedi5diah. But this list only has upfiring atmos modules. I still believe downfiring speakers will be better. Especially if your ceiling is not suitable for reflecting sound the way the upfiring speakers is designed for. My emphasis on the frequency range may also be important. Of cos one must also note that many speaker manufacturers post unreliable frequency range.

Locally it was available for a period than they decide to stop selling.
Alternate is Pioneer Andrew jones which can be brought locally.
However it is sold with AVR but not separately.

This isn't available for delivery to Singapore. Is it available at local sites/resellers?
