I know this has been asked hundreds of times… I've read more than a dozen of similar threads, but none quite answered my questions.
I'm planning on purchasing a 73" or 82" Mitsubishi DLP TV as soon as one of them goes on a good sale again.
Boxes: Apple TV, Roku, and PS3.
I'm looking for a good 3.1 setup. I don't want to run wires, and I don't feel the rear speakers add enough to be worth the hassle. I mainly watch TV shows and some movies.
I saw this deal on a complete Klipsch setup over on Slickdeals
2 Klipsch RF-42 II (Towers)
1 Klipsch RC-42 II (Centers)
2 Klipsch RS-41 II (Surrounds)
1 Harman Kardon AVR-1650 Receiver
1 BIC Acoustech PL-200 12" Subwoofer
I'd sell the 2 RS-41 II surround speakers, and possibly the receiver (see below).
I've also looked into the Polk R60s which sell for $150 (on sale for $99), but by the time I add a center, sub, and receiver, I'm only $100ish less than the Klipsch deal. The Klipsch are a much better speaker, right?
Next, I'd prefer to just wire all of the boxes directly to the TV. If I were to sell the included H/K AV receiver, is there are cheaper receiver that would power the speakers and sub, but doesn't include the the video pass-thru stuff? Would an amp with digital input work? If so, point me towards a good one.
Hope would these be for music listening?
Would do you think? I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks!
