    Puck, you are the guru of all things sound. I need to buy you a beer.

    In the Nashville/Franklin area, where are the places I can go to hear some decent speakers? I've been to Best Buy/Circuit City/ HH Gregg. Anywhere else?

    Particularly, Where can I hear the Kef Speakers?

    Try HI-FI Buys on Nolensville Road. Much more knowledgable. I have been looking for outdoor speakers and they had very good prices.

    you can hear the newer version of the Kef HTIB @ Circuit City

    HiFi Buys is on Nolensville Road about a block from the Zoo - however, unless you are looking for a Marantz / Mark Levinson $5000 system, you might wanna stay out of the store ... it's porno for audiophiles


    and whatever you do NO BOSE
    no highs , no lows ... must be Bose

    Hi-Fi Buys has alot of high end stuff, but also lower end set ups. They have a number of entry level speaker systems from Boston Acoustic, Klipsh, etc. I went to look as some Klipsch Outdoor speakers and their price was basically $40-60 less per speaker than online. It was a sale of course, but shouldn't discount the place just because they sell high end stuff. I bought my Integra reciever and Boston Acoustic setup there about 5 years ago and it was very reasonable.

    (Hey Puck...check out my latest post under "Outdoor Speakers"...)

    You should weight the dollars you spend towards your speakers. Consider what you want them to do [audio only, mix of audio/video, primarily HT, etc] and then spend your money on good speakers. You will lose more by going cheap on the speakers than you will by spending less on an A/V receiver.

    that's true LJ

    you can spend thousands on receivers only to never hear the quality because you hooked them up to junk speakers

    oh dear .....

    there goes your $500 budget

    however, a nice Denon receiver and a nice set of Boston Acoustic speakers and you're gonna be set.... double your restraint to $1000 and you'll be much happier - for longer
