I have a fairly small room (14x15 feet) that I'd like to setup for a home theater. Not really enough space for large speakers. But 5 smallish speakers and a sub should be fine.
I was looking at the $700 or so Yamaha/Onkyo HTiB like the Onkyo HT-S9400THX and Yamaha YHT-695BL.
Do they cut corners on the speakers? For similar money or maybe slightly more I could get:
2 pairs of Polk TSI-100s or Monitor 35Bs that go on sale for $110 periodically
Polk CS center $110
Polk 10" sub $190.
Any thoughts on which would be better? Or other speakers that would provide better sound for similar prices?
