I am building my first 5.1 home theater system with a budget $500-$800. My room size 12 x 17 ft. (My sofa 9 ft away from TV). I have some options in my mind and need you advices :
Opt 1. Denon DHT591BA -- $600
Denon AVR 591 + BA 5.1 speaker package
Opt 2. Newegg.com bundle deal -$500
1. YAMAHA 5.1-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver RX-V367
2. Energy Take Classic 5.1 5.1CH Premium Home Theater System
3. YAMAHA - iPod Dock for select Yamaha AV products (YDS-11SL)
Opt 3. Denon AVR 591 + Energy Take Classic 5.1 package
Total = 350 + 400 = $750 .
1. How much better in comparing Energy Take to Boston Acoustics Speaker?
2. Does Energy Take fit to Denon AVR 591 ?
3. Does opt 3 really worth the money or there are better choices for that money ?
BTW, I live in an apartment so I don't care too much about the volumn but care more on the sound quality. Any advices will be greatly appreciated ...
The top of your budget was what I was trying to stay under. I also have a room of comparable size.
Here is the thread on it:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...php?p=19373811
Using discount codes and cash back offers posted on evreward:
If you get a Yamaha 365 and the lower cost dock with coupon code "OCT5" at electronics expo that will put you back about $231.
Then get two pairs of the Infinity P162 plus the PC250 at Crutchfield using the various codes for $20 off from Visa and Mastercard, plus the $25 gift card code.
Then get a V1220 from Teamstore.(I know, an odd place to buy a subwoofer, but they have a great price). You might be able to get $15% with free shipping for just going to the site the first few times. (That is what I did). Otherwise one of the off 20% codes or sign up for their email list to get 15% off with free shipping. The 15% off with free shipping is the lowest price you will find on the site, because the thing does cost a few bucks to ship.
Sign up for Mr.Rebates, you will get 7% at teamstore. Plus for signing up for Mr.Rebates, you get 7.50 sign-up bonus.
With the cashback and coupons, that should put you at just about below 800.
You can also shave 25 bucks off by getting the Yamaha 367 refurbished form TigerDirect using the Visa discount link you will find at evreward. Although TigerDirect says the refurbished unit has a 24 month warranty, I am skeptical and inquired about it. They will be emailing me. I would tend to think the warranty should be a year though, so you still have protection.
Yes, I know this is aggressive shopping, but it DOES meet your upper price point of $800.
Now if you want to spend less, you obviously have come up with several choices that people can give you input on.
