First and foremost this is my first post and I'd like to say hello to the community and I appreciate any responses I get.
I found this thread at the top and I didn't want to create a new one but I wanted to find a solution for my audio needs. Below I've included a layout of my living room with dimensions and placement of my furniture and equipment.
I have a Vizio E601-E3 television which is a 60" Razor LED TV. I have it on a corner stand which is straight at the front and circular on the back. It's against the corner of my living room. I don't have it directly underneath my staircase because the power outlet is on the opposite corner near the DVD case and not below the staircase. On top of that during the holidays we put the table in the corner near the steps and place the christmas tree there.
Anyway, I'm on a serious budget ($200-$300) but I wanted more sound other than the speakers on the TV. I've looked into several systems and I wanted to know from some of the posters on here what they think would be best based on their own personal experiences.
I've looked at 4 systems so far which are the SONY HC-CT150, VIZIO VHT510, YAMAHA YAS-101, and the BOSE Cinemate Series 2. I'm looking for a system that can provide me with clean crisp sound with deep basses and good mids and highs. I'll mainly be using it to watch Blue Ray movies.
The TV has 4 HDMI ports, which I'm using 2 of. One for a cable box and the other for a Roku. It also has optical out.
Out of the 4 systems, I've only heard the BOSE at a local Best Buy,. I am aware that the BOSE stands are controlled environments with altered sounds and I should not expect it to perform the same in my space. I've found BOSE CInemate units on craigslist for around $300.
I want to know what I should go with. Thank you.
