Hey guys, I am setting up a home theater in my new house. I have already bought a projector and a screen with help from people in the projector section of the forum. As I am completely new to all this and don't know anything about audio or video I asked someone I know to recommend a good sound system for my room. Following are the things he recommended:

- Polk Audio TSI500 front speakers
- Polk Audio TSI200 surround
- Polk Audio TSI100 back surround
- Polk Audio CSIA20 center
- Polk Audio PSW550 woofer
- Yamaha RXV2067 or Onkyo TXNR3010 receiver

Are these components any good? Also is there anything else you guys would recommend? Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

I won't be able to answer any questions but what would probably help someone else is if you gave more information.

Budget, room size, viewing distance, and projector/screen you brought.

I have never been a big fan of the Polk's that you are looking at. I owned the RTi12's a couple years ago, and they were really flat and never had much for highs. Polk's sub-woofers also always seem to bottom out when you really try to push them. From the questions you asked, I would tell you that you have more receiver than you need in the Onkyo 3010, but dropping down to a 1010, and upping the budget on the speakers would be a great idea. I definitely like the Onkyo more than the Yamaha. The Yamaha receivers have always been harsh and over processed in their sound quality. They are too complicated and have a ton of features that you will never use. The Onkyo will run circles around it in sound quality. I think if you are happy in the price range of the Polk's, you should take a listen to the Reference line of Klipsch. I think you will get more bang for the buck.

Check out our website, and come check out our showroom. http://www.crossoveravs.com
Klipsch, Sonos, JVC, Onkyo, Martin Logan, KEF, JVC, Salamander Designs, Parasound, and more!

Whats your budget and what quality are you looking for? I would maybe go with 6 of these and the center while they are on sale for 100$ a pair.

Hey guys thanks for your help. I went to a store in my area and listened to klipsch and Polk audio speakers. I am not an expert but the klipsch sounded better so I think I'll go with klipsch. Thanks tapout for pointing me in the right direction.
