I need help with speakers. I'm new to all of this but learned a lot from reading this forum. I recently moved and am using part of the proceeds from the sale of my home to build my first real (not HTIB) home theater. I have a Sony Bravia 47 TV, a PS3, and an Onkyo TX-SR707 AV receiver that I found through Great Found Deals on this website.
I intended to mount bookshelf speakers on either side of the TV, but discovered there is no room to do so. I don't really have adequate room for floor-stand speakers. I was thinking of getting a sound bar which, if I understand correctly, would replace the left/center/right speakers. I read about LCR sound bars in Home Theater magazine, but again, I'm new at this and just learning.
I bought the Samsung HT-WS1G with wireless subwoofer and I haven't opened the box yet. After reading more on this site and doing a little research, I'm starting to think it was a bad decision. If I understand correctly, a sound bar is not what I need if I intend to use an AV receiver. Is this correct?
Is the sound bar a poor decision? Are there other options? I'm getting down to the end of my system budget and don't have a lot of cash left for expensive options.
I do intend to buy ceiling-mount surround speakers. I'm thinking about 6-1/2 Inches Kevlar 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (first post won't let me insert a URL yet but I found them on monoprice).
Thoughts? Recommendations? Help!
