I'm not sure what kind of budget I would really need to achieve the type of set up I have in mind. I assume it would be a couple thousand depending on what I go with. I understand the theory of how the install can influence output, so I'm shooting for speakers that will perform well, but planning on putting them within ideal, custom cabinets to optomize their performance. I'm assuming most of the money will go into the receiver and amplifiers. Not sure of the exact measurements of my room, but maybe 10 X 20. Average size.
