I have a dedicated home theater room (13.1" X 18.6"). I need advice on whether to upgrade my sound system or not.
My current setup:
Samsung PN63C8000 63-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV, Black
KEF KHT-3005 system
PS3 (blu-ray, games)
That TV is new, and has 3D capabilities, but the Onkyo won't pass 3D (only has HDMI 1.3). I don't use 3D too much, but it's annoying to have to bypass my system and just use TV speakers.
I thought I'd get a new receiver to pass HDMI 1.4a, but maybe jsut upgrade the whole system.
What's the best could I get for about $1k-$1.5K?
Are 2 of those KEF's ok to use as my rear's if I replace the front 3? Is that sub still adaquate if I get better fronts/center?
Should I just leave it alone (saying that I can't get much of an upgade for my budget)?
I'm not 'unhappy' with my current setup, but if I could upgrade and really notice a difference, i'd like to.
I've read people on this board saying you're better off treating the room than changing equipment. I just have two rows of seats (back row on a carpeted riser). I know I need to paint it, but didn't really look beond that.
what's the best use of my money?
