While I'm very advanced in terms of streaming media and my other components, I've always let sound slide. The reason is that up until now I've been a renter, and never wanted the hassle of setting up a sound system only to have to take it down again. Later this month we will be closing on our first house, and it's time to upgrade the old audio. I already have a receiver on hand, a Pioneer VSX-72TXV receiver given to me by my brother when he upgraded. I don't have a pressing need to try to go 7.1, nor do I have a lot of money to spend. I know for $400 or less you get mostly garbage, but what's the BEST garbage I can get?
Keep in mind I'll be upgrading from a Vizio soundbar!
The living room this system will go in is 15 X14. There are two doorway size openings, One on the south wall, one on the west wall, but mostly it's just an almost square room. The floor is hardwood, if that makes any difference.
If I had to rank WHAT I wanted to sound good on my system, it would go like this:
We've never listened to music that much in the living area, but perhaps that will change with a better audio setup. My brother sent me a recommendation for these:Mirage NanoSat 5.1
Also, this audio system doesn't need to last forever. In the not too far future I can upgrade it more seriously, but for now I just want to try out a 5.1 system. I feel like the room I have might be pretty good for it.
