Long time lurker, first time posting
I've finally have the opportunity to set up my first home theater system and am very excited. Ok, on to it.
I read a bunch so forgive me as i've seen many threads with similar questions, but i'm still in need of advice.
I just purchased the Pioneer's VSX-1012-K from newegg.com with the great promo coupon.
Now i need the speakers to go with it for our family room (about 16x16 and 12ft ceiling)
I want to get a set of Energy speakers and i'm one of many debating between the Energy Take 5 or the RC-Micro set. As we all know, the price is the same for the each set, but there's currently another promo at newegg to get the rc-micro speakers without the sub for $160.
So my question is, should i get the rc-micro speakers and search for a sub, or get the Take 5 or rc-micro with sub?
I'm leaning towards getting the set so i don't have to worry about finding a sub, but maybe the process won't be so bad after some guidance.
My budget is pretty firm at $430.
I've not seen energy speakers to listen to, i'm going off reviews here and cnet and i trust they wil be sufficient for my first experience.
So what do you think?
