I am in the process of completing my basement with a custom Home Theater and I have a question for all the experts out here about which set of In-wall speakers I should go with.
Let me first list what components I've already decided to buy:
Denon AVR-3312CI (or Onkyo TX-NR809 as a alternative)
Epson PowerLite 8700UB
Screen: 129" diagonal screen
I am looking to setup 7 speakers around a closed HT that is about 21' x 13'.
I've narrowed my choice down to the following two options (I would like to spend max $2000 on speakers):
Option #1: Polk In-wall Speakers
Center: Polk 255c-RT
L+R: Polk 265-RT
Surrounds: Polk 65-RT
Rears: Polk 65-RT
Sub: Polk DSWPRO-550wi
Option #2: Definitive In-wall Speakers
Center: DefTech UIW 75
L+R: DefTech UIW 65
Surrounds: DefTech UIW BPA
Rears: DefTech UIW 55
Sub: DefTech PSW800
Bottomline, I need to know if one set is substantially superior to another set, and if so, why. I can get the Polk set for about 20% cheaper than the DefTech set. Hence, all things equal, I'm leaning towards Polk. But, I've always liked Def Tech performance that I've experienced at a couple of my friends homes. I haven't had a chance to experience Polk speakers for extended periods of time, as yet. Hence, the dilemma.
Appreciate any help, any comments! Willing to listen about AVR, projector choice as well...
