I am retiring my old Yamaha receiver and speakers and getting a new home theater for the living room.
The living room is connected to the kitchen and the whole space is about 18ft X 30ft. The TV viewing area is 18ft X 15ft. The TV is wall mounted and there is no entertainment console below it, my cable box, blue ray player and a computer is behind the wall inside a closet.
I want speakers that are not too big so that they blend in with a minimalist theme I have going, also dont mind buying speakers separately.
I was pretty set on buying the Bose V35. But I find that there is a lot of Bose hate going around. Most comments say that the audio quality is bad for the price. After a discount the price comes to around 2200 $ for me. So is it worth buying for this price ? Are there any alternatives that sound better and look aesthetically pleasing at the same time ?
