Hi everyone. I currently have a 50 Panasonic Viera plasma and sound bar with sub. I'm moving to a bigger house and would like to upgrade my system.

What would you suggest for receiver, speakers, etc...for under 3k?

Thank you

Don't know a thing about your room, but how about the MK Movie 5.1 package? Lists at $1400. Add a second SB-8 sub for $880, and look at the Denon AVR-1913, list at $580. You can probably find the stuff less than list with a dealer in your area so you won't have to pay shipping. By the time you add tax, you'll be just under your budget.

As an alternative, the Pioneer VSX-1122 is about the same price as the Denon once you add the wifi adapter, and then you have AirPlay and net control without running a network line to the receiver.

That system will rock your b*&ls off and still leave you money for beer.

You could save around $500 by dropping down to an RX-A720, & ProCinema 800 system but the aforementioned fits right in your budget.

No, it's current product. I'm a dealer.

The MK web site is:
http://www.mksoundsystem.com/

Click on Home Loudspeakers, scroll to the bottom to the MK Movie package. The dealer shown on the MK Movie page is an option, but you can always find them elsewhere from this:

with a $3K budget you should be posting this in the Speakers forum, not HTIB forum. You've gotten only 7 replies in almost 4 weeks because you're in the wrong place. Much more activity in the Speakers forum.
