Hello again avs forum

i have a budget of 3000-5000 for a 5.1 or 5.2 system. I will need a received and speakers/wires etc. I live in Canada.

Room dimensions: 11 x 16 with couch against back wall.

For movies and television and very little music listening.


I've recently been looking at ascend sierra, sho-10 and some other book shelve speakers.


As i pretty much only watch movies and tv im assuming having a very good subwoofer will be worth it. Not sure how to split budget to get the best value for money.



5k is the MAX. Cant go over that unless VERY close and MASSIVE improvement.


Thanks.

How dedicated is the room?

Give or take, I'd say about a fourth in subs, a half in speakers, and split the last fourth between receiver/amp and room treatments.

Myself, I'm in a living room HT. My split is about $3k (all used market and 7-channel) in speakers, $2k in subs, $2k in receiver and amp, and $200-300 in room treatments.

SHO-10's are a good choice along with their CHT 18.2 subs. As efficient as those SHO's are you won't need a whole lot of power. Anthem is nice, but I think it is overpriced for what you get. Denon AVRs run a pretty high bang for your buck value. Monoprice or Blue Jeans for all your cabling. And an Oppo BD player will round out your system nicely.

Whereabouts in Canada are you? Shipping for 5.2 could eat into the budget (go with two subs for even bass response in the whole room).

Don't worry about wires. Look at Monoprice or Blue Jeans Cables. All of your wires and connectors should be $100 - $200 max.

Chase Home Theater is a great option for speakers and subs.

As is our fellow Canadain, Nathan Funk, of Funk Audio on the Sunshine Coast.

If looks are important, Nathan's stuff looks better. And if you need something different for rears, he does tons of custom work.

I second the vote for Paradigm speakers and an Anthem receiver.

+1111 on ordering from Nathan Funk.

Ordered a custom 18" sub from Nathan that is scheduled to ship on Tuesday. I also have two custom F8.2P as floor standers and a 5.4P centre on order.

Nathan's custom work is the best bar none. Being located in Canada is an added bonus.

I'm not the one to describe a bookshelf system so I'll deal with other parts and you can add your bookshelf speakers with what's left over.

Marantz SR5007 $750.00 (AVR)

Emotiva XPA-5 $900.00 (Outboard Amp, to be added "IF NEEDED," after system is set-up, running and dialed in)

HSU 12" sub (2) VTF-3 MK4 ($800.00 ea) $1,600.00

Wire and interconnects paid for with general, day-to-day budget money; it's not a lot; <$200.00.

(Prices above are based on U.S. availability and priced in USD.)


$2,350.00 - $3,250.00; $2,350.00 if you don't buy the outboard Amp at onset.

Add to the mix your bookshelf speakers as you wish or buy the front three first (you'll still get gripping/engaging sound) and add the surrounds later. IIRC, approximately five percent of all 5.1 content goes through the surrounds. A system doesn't have to be built in a day.

My opinion, the center channel is the most important part of the 5.1 speaker chain as eighty-five to ninety percent of dialogue content goes through the center channel. The next most important part of the speaker chain are the subwoofers and yes, for even, tight sound, one "NEED's" two subs. I repeat, not one but two. My preference is a pair of 10" subs (tighter and more responsive to the bass line) but 12" subs are noted for digging deeper; compromise. I'm a fan of sealed subs in smaller rooms for tighter bass with a flatter response over ported subs for larger rooms and larger sound. From this list, with monies leftover, buy the bookshelf speakers which meet your fancy. Again, you can buy the front three (L/C/R) and later add the two back surrounds. To the best of one's ability, they should buy the best quality they can afford and if that means not buying a pair of surrounds at the onset, then so be it. Your sound will be rewarded for your patience.

No matter what you choose to do, don't be in a hurry. Read as many reviews as you can stomach. Audition as many speakers as you can. Respect the stores you audition with; don't use them as an audition store and then buy online. That's unethical. You have plenty in your budget to buy wisely and good luck.

Hope the above helps in your decision making process.

SHO-10 's and a Funk Audio sub sound like a stellar combination. I would get a good Denon receiver and skip the dedicated amp for now. Your room is not large and it won't take much at all to drive the SHO-10 speakers, Monoprice for cables.

Two subs is probably overkill...

Lol, I know.. Funk 18.0 powered sub is about $2800 shipped Canadian.. Passive version is under $2k but you still need an amp... So there goes the sub budget smile.gif

SVS PB13 Ultra in Canada is under $2k


http://www.sonicboomaudio.com/box-subwoofers-ultra-series-c-1_7.html

Two PB12NSD subs for around $1400 is a great option:

All the brands from Mark Levinson, Krell, Parasound Halo, Classe, Boulder, Lexicon, etc, will have superb measurements. There is a good reason for that.
AVR from Denon, Yamaha, and Pioneer measure better than even a $5000 Arcam AVR or a $1K Anthem.
Here is the $1K Anthem MRX300:
83wpc x 5ch into 8 ohm @ 1%THD. THD+N was less than 0.030 percent at 1 kilohertz when driving 2.83 volts into an 8-ohm load. Crosstalk at 1 kHz driving 2.83 volts into an 8-ohm load was –72.23 decibels left to right and –71.65 dB right to left. The signal-to-noise ratio with an 8-ohm load from 10 hertz to 24 kHz with “A” weighting was –101.03 dBrA.
http://www.hometheater.com/content/anthem-mrx-300-av-receiver-ht-labs-measures
Any $500-$750 AVR from Denon and Yamaha will measure better than the Arcam and Anthem.
So just buy an AVR from Denon or Yamaha for about $500-$750. Put the rest of your budget into speakers.
I'm not saying the Arcam or Anthem or any AVR will sound bad. They will sound about the same when you are not using any processing like RC, EQ, DSP. The sound quality from all these AVR will sound as good as one another. Put your money into speakers.
If you get an Arcam or Anthem or NAD, they will sound great too. But not any better at all than the other AVR.
Now speakers are different than AVR. Measurements on speakers don't tell you everything. It is the measurements plus how the speakers interact with your own room and speaker placement. So you must audition speakers.
Check out PSB, Paradigm, KEF, B&W, Revel, Focal, Revel, Dynaudio, Funk, NHT and any you can audition.

Hard to argue with anything here. I would push for an Internet Direct subwoofer no matter what. And I like the reasonably priced Denon receivers that have Audyssey MultiEQ XT.

The Onkyo 818 can be had for around $1000 and it has Audyssey XT32 which for me made a huge improvement to the sound in my room. Some people don't like Audyssey, and I think they are nuts. Just kidding. The only thing that's lacking in that AVR is SubEQ, which doesn't make a difference if you have only one sub.

Still, I'd spend most of my money on the sub(s).

I recently got the SHO-10's and they sound great, and they are quite the bargain.

I think a Harman Crown XLS 2000 amp for $467 will be great.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B003HZPKXC/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

Even a $350 Crown XLS 1500 has 1050 watts RMS bridged mono.

The Crown XLS are silent, little heat, stays cool, very efficient, weighs only 10 lbs, high quality, great sound.

Andrew Robinson uses the XLS 2000 for his B&W 800D2. biggrin.gif

I have the Funk 18.0s. They are absolutely amazing subs in terms of Sound Quality, Bass output, and craftsmanship. Highly recommended.

For that kind of money, I decided to save up for a pair of Martin Logan, Depth i subs; tight, smooth, musical bass. Yeah baby!

(A pair of Depth i being outside the stated budget of the OP, hence why they were not recommended.)

I lucked out, despite the cost of the sub upgrade, my wife being a symmetrical personality, insists when I do upgrade our subs, that it be done as a pair for she's not going have an asymmetrical situation (two different subs) going on in "her" symmetrical living room.

"Okay, dear."

Different speakers. The Ascends are great, and really nice speakers. But the SHO-10's will outdo them easily for HT. The CD with the horn is what sets the SHO-10 apart.

It depends. You live in Vancouver, so, if a US retailer has free shipping in the US, get it shipped to a border town near you and pick it up. I'm in Winnipeg and many of us do this all the time. Otherwise, depending on size of purchase, shipping could be 200-500. I purchased a SVS sub from Sonic Boom and they were great to deal with. I bought speakers from ED (USA) and had them shipped for free to the border and bought Swans and had them shipped direct. The swans cost me around $375 with shipping and brokerage for a pallet load. I have not heard the Sho 10's but by all accounts, they are an excellent value. Add 2 subs from Chase and get pricing on shipping direct. Get an amp for the subs anywhere for about $500-600 and you'll probably be sitting around 4K with shipping. It leaves you 1 K for an AVR (which you already have many fine suggestions for).

In dealing with Nathan...the total cost "quoted" for my sub... was to my door....no surprises! With the Ascends, I didn't mind paying the added incurred cost ..later...I even paid the return shipping when I decided to upgraded from the Sierra 1's to the Towers...IMO somethings are just worth it...YMMV....?

My system:
3 LaScalas = 1400
2 Heresies= 250
2 Danley DTS10's = 2000
XPA5= 800
Integra 40.1= $900

Total is $5350. I've got a few other pieces, but you wouldn't have to.

For home theater, it will arguably compete with home theaters of any price range.
