Comparing these two HTIBs, any recommendations for one over the other?
I read up some threads on these two, but no direct comparison. I am looking at these two models only at this time as I can get a deal on them. Third option would be to skip em both and build my own combination for 200/300 more down the line.

Never done an audio before so HTIB seemed like a good basic start.

note: the post above is my opinion. as such, when reading any recommendations from me, please do you research and seek out other recommendations and make up your own mind on your next course of action. i mean, most reasonable adults should know that, but it seems this should be stated anyways.

I used to have the 391 and was pleased with it. Howmuch are they going for? Max budget? Room size? Goal?

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

would like to stay in the 300-400 range. working temporarily for a big box store so trying to make use of savings.

i did pick up the 391 but man is that box heavy. have not opened it yet. double minded.

i am also now looking at "Pioneer 5.1 Channel 3D Home Theatre Receiver with Polk Audio 5.1 Speaker System". The receiver is the VSX-521-K. I think the speakers are the RM6750.

Room size typically 11x17. Just want something other then the flat screen speakers. Entry level to enjoy 5.1. Soundbar was a consideration but dont know how they would fair.

thanks.

Neither Onkyo or Denon is know for making even average speakers...so the deal with the Pioneer receiver and Polk speaker set will likely give you a much better sound.

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

except when you factor in all the video problems with the Pioneer vsx-521. Check the 521 owners thread in the amp & receivers section.

If I keep the RM6750 speakers, what other receiver in the 250-300 range should i look at then? (Pioneer 821 could be an option as well, but dont know if they would have the same problems.)

That's easy, the Denon Avr-1612 http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004U403WM

arrgghh! was almost set to buy the stuff, but another very comparable (cost to me) setup was suggested.

denon 1612 or Pioneer VSX-921-K?

Polk RM6750 or Energy Take Classic II 5.1 Speaker System?
