Yet another budget HT setup here. I used to have a Bose Acoustimass 10, however I sold it when I moved. I've been told I can do the same or better for less.
The viewing area is small, most likely 15x15. However the room itself is a combination of two rooms and a vaulted ceiling. 15x32x18 (LxWxH). I already have a Vizio E701i-A3 TV (70" LED).
Energy Take Classic OR Monoprice 10565.
My research indicates that both systems are very similar, however the Enegery Classic essentually is visually more appealing and has a better warrenty. If the Energy classic drops down to $299 (as it frequently does) I will go with them. For now I'm considering the Monoprice speakers.
I'm looking for a receiver that's primary purpose is sound output. I have a smart TV, all the other fancy features would not be necessary in the receiver. I also require an IR in jack as the unit will be in a different room.
I searched though accesories4less and found a Onkyo TX-NR414 reciever, with free shipping it appears to be an excellent deal at $188.88.
So (with shipping) it's $288.80 for speakers and $188.88 for the receiver. The total comes to $476.88 (includes tax + shipping).
Monoprice 10565 Speakers OR Amazon Energy Classic Speakers
Receiver: A4Less Onkyo TX-NR414
TV: Amazon E701i-A3
So my question to you is there a better speaker/receiver configuration I should consider over this unit for nearly the same price?
Unfortunately I haven't seen anywhere near that price since I bought them. It was on Amazon the day after Christmas. Amazon plays with prices a lot, so I'd keep an eye on them and see what the current lowest price is. One thing to keep in mind - Monoprice charges shipping on their site. If you can get them from Amazon for not much more than Monoprice, you will probably save after shipping. I think my shipping was going to be about $40 from Monoprice, but free from Amazon. You can call Amazon, but with nothing to price match I doubt they would come down on the price.
