Using Standalone Speakers on a HTIB
I want to get bigger speakers, preferably floor standing. Can I use those with the receiver from the Sony HTIb I have. Getting an additional receiver would go outside my budget. So I am thinking of getting something like the Energy 5.0 speaker set and use my original Sub and receiver from the Sony HT-SS2000. Would this setup work. And will I notice any difference from the Sony speakers?
