FYI I am a Home Theater noob
Onkyo HT-S3300 aound $300http://http://www.onkyousa.com/model...ss=Systems&p=i
Yamaha YHT-493BL around $400http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/p...4&CTID=5000800
Yamaha YHT-393BL around $340-350http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/p...6&CTID=5000800
I am only going to be using this for my medium sized bedroom for watching TV and movies and games on my PS3... I am not a big audio person.. first home theater ever so I don't need the better more expensive systems... I am trying to pick from the choices above...these are the differences I have found between the two yamaha models... the 393BL has smaller woofers at 2-1/2" compared to the 2-3/4" woofers of the 493BL.. that is the only difference.. is that worth the 50-60 dollar difference???
As for the Onkyo it has a passive sub compared to the active sub on the yamaha... also the onkyo has audyssey..I don't see the yamaha having this.. is that really important or does the yamaha have something similar? seems the onkyo has more features.. maybe i only think this because the yamaha page isnt as detailed... any advice?? thanks.. crazyrob.. I'm expecting to hear a good response from you
Or is there a better option for a ~$400 or so price range... again this will always be a bedroom set.. I'll get a bigger better system once I get my house...
thanks again in advance...
Edit: after reading some more it seems both yamaha systems above are using the HTR-3063 receiver which is only $230 so are the yahama speakers worth that much to add $100-110 for the 393BL speakers or $160-170 for the 493BL speakers? is the yamaha receiver better then the onkyo receiver? and if so, is there a better speaker set I can get for around the same price instead of the yamaha speakers? that way i can just buy the receiver by itself and better speakers.. i have a bunch of hdmi cables... how much is the speaker wire and/or other items i will need to buy.. i am planning on getting that stuff from monoprice.. or should i just save the money and get the HT-S3300 since I don't plan on upgrading this system to better speakers or sub since I am only going to use it for a bedroom only... hmm i found the 393BL for $320 shipped.. should I just get that or the S3300... man i get OCD over buying things when there are so many options.. LOL
