Hello all AVS members.
I am trying to build a HT system for my parents. They purchased a samsung 46 HDTV which i mounted on the wall, now they are ready for some surround sound.
If i leave this up to them they will buy a cheapy HTIB and from my prior experience as a audio/video installer for tweeter i know piecing together a system usually yields better results.
-$500-800max receiver/5 speakers/sub
-wall mountable speakers (could go with 2 freestanding front's but the surround and center need to be wall mountable)
-only thing thats will be hooked up is a HD cable box/DVD player (they might upgrade to a Blue ray down the road)
since i have been out of the audio/video loop for over 6 years i hope you guys/gals can give me your 2 cents.
This is what i've been thinking
Onkyo TX-SR607 $399 new egg (free ship)
Infinity Primus theater II $297.50 ebay
Polk Audio PSW-10 $99 new egg (free ship)
That is pushing the envelope, so much i doubt i will be able to convince them to spend that much with tax and cables etc...
Any and all recommendations are welcome
