Hey guys, I'm not sure if the speaker forum is the best place for this since I'm asking about a whole setup but here's my situation. I'm looking to upgrade my older Onkyo HT-S780 HTIB (the receiver is the HT-R530, and wanted to know if this was a good route.
Receiver: Pioneer VSX1012K, (local negotiated deal for $275)... could get a Onkyo TXNR609 for $325 if it's worth the extra money.
Speakers: Pioneer FS51's, BS21's, C21 (BestBuy for $285)
Sub: BIC F12 (Amazon for $188)
I use the system mostly for ps3 gaming and watching blu-rays via ps3. I don't think I need any hdmi inputs as I plan on continuing to use hdmi directly from my ps3 (and cable box) to an Epson 8350 projector for the video and digital optical to the receiver for the audio. I don't want to add any input lag for gaming. As far as the room, it's a wide open basement (aprox. 700 sq. ft.) The seating is 13 ft from the screen/front speakers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
