I'm spending around ~$3500 on a new home theater. The receiver is gonna be the HK 3600 for $500 On closeout. The sub will likely be an outlet SVS, either tube or sealed for $1000ish, unless you have other suggestions?
So that leaves ~$2000 for fronts, center and surrounds. I like Klipsch if that gives you an idea of taste.. So bright.
My room is 11.5' x 23' x 8'h ceiling. Viewing distance is 9' with sectional against back wall, so surrounds will have to be on that back wall either mounted directly or with omnimounts.
Listening is 90% movies/ 10% music.
