I had only a small 42" pio-flatscreen, a pio receiver and panasonic BD. Cheap, very cheap, although some nearly "useful" B&W 6 series speakers,
Not lucky, it sounded a bit of "tin-can", and no surround feeelings ....
I sold it all. I convinced my local bank to lend me $ 10.000, and now I am flat broke. Only small change left to buy me som leftover food :-)
OK, I bought this two months ago.
Marantz 5006, Oppo 93, Sonos 90, PSB Image T6, Dali Ikon vocal, Samsung PS51d6905, Rega RP1, Klipsch rs-42
SVS PC12 just two weeks ago
I am very happy with this setup, at last my films looks and sound as "they should".
I have to major problem;
a) I have to watch all my old DVDs once more -- a completely new experience !
b) Ditto my CD collection
One problem, you might laugh at me, I just cant stop buying DVD/ blurays from Aamazon! I have bought approx one hundred the last month,
each and every is a big treat, due to my "muscle retardation", I havent been able to go to the Movies, now I have got my own Theate, I have a lot to "catch up"....
Ok, I am happy :-)
I also have built me a garden pond last year. That is the patron saint of the pond :-)
