So about 12 years ago I got a HTiBhttp://reviews.cnet.com/home-theater-systems/onkyo-ht-s650/1707-6740_7-9952795.html
Now ... I am a perfectionist and a musician by hobby so I value good sound. It's my drug.Reason why I did not upgrade is:1)
Thought it will be too much hassle. Throwing out my old system (kinda feel sad).2)
I have the money and can afford $5K+ systems, but don't feel like paying so much to listen to some music 2 times a week or watch a movie once a week. I do however watch TV every day (reality, shows, news, etc).3)
I was worried that the upgrade won't be enough of a sound difference for me to be truly happy.
So .............My room and my dream system.
The room is about 19 x 13.
I sit about 9-10 Feet away from front speakers
I do about 70% movies & TV shows, 30% music.
I want human voices to be crystal clear. I want sound effects to sound real. I want music to come alive and feel as if I am at the concert hall.NOTE: ... from HTiB I changed Receiver to Yamaha RX-v465
(105 watts x 5 into 8 ohms (1k Hz) at 0.9% THD
Dolby® TrueHD, DTS-HD™ Master Audio, Dolby® Digital Plus, DTS-HD™ High Resolution Audio, DTS-Express, Dolby® Digital EX, DTS-ES™, Pro Logic® IIx, and DTS Neo:6 decoding)System I am eying.
L/R/C speakers = Sierra-1
Subwoofer = STF-2
Surrounds = CBM-170SE
TOTAL = $1,995
1) What do you think???
2) If I wanted to save a bit of money, what can I live without? Maybe skip Sub or surrounds?
