Hey guys. Been awhile. I’m getting settled into Medellín (Colombia) and living it. Found a great place that we’ll be moving into later this month, so naturally I’m starting to think about putting in a new system. I’m going to stay away from vinyl since there’s nowhere to buy records here. The living room in this new spot is HUGE with maybe 20’ ceilings. I’m planning to put in a 100”+ screen for a home theater, but want a system that sounds great too. I’m addicted to that tube sweetness after owning a Shindo system, but not sure how to get that (or something similar) sound in a system that needs to do double duty as a home theater with surround sound. I’m going to set an initial budget of around $5-6k for the audio components including speakers. I’m currently thinking about getting 2 or 3 vintage Altec A7 Voice of the Theater speakers for the front three channels and then buying some super cheap speakers for the surround channels. I know I can tweak the components in the A7’s and turn hem into something special down the road. But I’m also thinking about something from the Klipsch Heritage line. I’ve owned several Klipsch speakers in the past and found them good for the money but quite fatiguing. But they were always paired with solid state A/V receivers (Yamaha and Denon). I’m open to speaker suggestions too. I’d be buying used almost for sure. I’ve found some expats here who know shippers who can get stuff here at decent prices. But I’m not really sure what to do on the amp/pre side. I want tube sound, but need something that will accept 4K picture and do at least 7.2 if not 11.2. Of course, I’ve never heard of an a/v receiver with tubes, so I may not be able to go that route. What I could do is start with a solid state receiver and then add a tube amp down the road and just hook the 2 front speakers to that when I’m listening to music. Not sure. Any suggestions as I’m thinking my approach through?
