I'm looking for a 5.1 setup for a 14' x 15' room in my apartment. My budget is under $1400 including sub.
For speakers, I'm set on bookshelves instead of floorstanding - they're smaller and are a better value imo. None of those puny cube speakers will do either.
Hoping to stick with a 10" sub for as this is an apartment, so I can't play it all that loud. I think that should be sufficient for a room of this size.
- I'm pretty set on the HSU VTF-1 MK2 as I like the deep bass extension it can provide. I'm open to suggestions, though.
At the moment, the two sets of speakers/combos that I've roughly narrowed it down to are those in the title.
- HSU Hybrid 1 (http://hsuresearch.com/products/hybrid1pkg.html
) $1324 shipped
- HTD Level Three + HSU VTF-1 MK2 (http://www.htd.com/Products/level-three-speakers
) $921 + 494 = $1415 shipped
I'm intrigued by the ribbon tweeter in the HTD speakers as well as their surrounds, but the HSUs are legit as well.
Are there any similar setups that you would recommend for this range (or more mix-match of the above)?
I also need a receiver, budgeted separately
at under $300.
Right now I'm ready to go with the DENON AVR-1912 from accessories4less. I like the features it has over the 1712.
Also for the same price is the Onkyo TX-NR609. Right now I'm set on the Denon because I like its looks more than the Onkyo haha, so please give me your thoughts.
