Working on my basement home theater and I'm starting to look at audio. This is a pretty low-budget ordeal so far, but I'll give you an idea of what I'm planning so far. The room is a little over 8' wide, a little over 16' long, and about 8' tall. I am going with an Optoma 750 projector (for now). I plan to have seating from Roman, the Fusion collection (probably Escape or Tribute). Hopefully with buttkickers just because I've never tried them before and I hear they are worthwhile investments.
My PC is well capable of handling full HD 3-D content, I have a PS3, and the plans for the room are 50/50 gaming and movies. For audio I'd like something kickass, preferably something that doesn't require rocket science to install, and doesn't break the budget. I'm thinking less than $1000, even better under $500. Primarily the content will be coming from my computer, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
I'm looking for advice on what I should be looking for. I have an LG surround system from 5 years ago that works fine, but I'm thinking for a dedicated home theater/gaming room I want something more impressive. Am I best off getting a single setup like http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/ONKHTS9400/Onkyo-HT-S9400-THX-7.1-Ch-Network-Home-Theater-Receiver/Speaker/1.html#!more
that one? Or buying the receiver and speakers separately?
If you throw lingo at me, be aware I'm just learning. I've set up a few car stereo systems in my high school years and I've always had a surround sound system with my TVs, but I'm not an enthusiast (yet) so be gentle with me! Feel free to grill me for more information if you need it.
Thank you all!
