I posted a few days ago in the Speakers sub-forum, but I completely revamped the room shape so figured I'd just start fresh and use the proper forum.
Attached is my design. This is going into one half of a finished basement, which begins construction in a couple weeks. Here's what I've settled on so far
- Epson 8350 (price, placement flexibility, quality)
- 96" image (arrived at this based on 2-row requirement and available space)
- I was initially against in-wall speakers, but now that I have a proper room design that can actually look like a real theater, I'm interested in in-wall options as well.
- Budget: $5,000 for projector, speakers, receiver
Truth be told, I know squat about home theater equipment. I don't know how to choose my speakers or receiver. I've found a few receivers that seem like they might fit the bill, but buying one would be a gamble at this point:Onkyo NR709
I like this, but the unit seems to be prone to problems.Onkyo NR609
The 709's little brother, seems less problematic.Denon AVR 2311CI
Safe bet? Adequate for the room size?Yamaha RX-V671
So by all means, hit me with speaker/receiver suggestions - I would be incredibly grateful.
Thanks in advance,
