1.) Room size: 11 feet by 11 feet
2.) Front and center speakers will be put close to wall, may be hardly 10 inches gap.
3.) I would like to use it for 60% soft jazz music and 40% for movies.
4.) For me its really very hard to describe in words that what type of sound I would like but, I have an idea in my mind.
5.) I came across a good web-link where there are three songs have been given and I have gone through this. I heard something this type of music and looking for such a clear, crisp, good clarity into the instrument sound, brightness in the vocal.


6.) I have gone through few options and also dealer has suggested some options. Options are:

a.) Receiver marantz SR6007 ( I am almost sure about this receiver)
b.) In speaker, dealer has suggested me to make home theater using book shelf speakers: wharfadale denton (limited edition), Wharfadale 10 CS or 10 CM for center, Wharfadle 10 DFS for rear and wharfadale SPC 8 sub woofer.

2nd option is:
a.) Receiver marantz SR6007 ( I am almost sure about this receiver)
b.) In speaker : monitor audio bx-2 bronze bookshelf for front

center: monitor audio bronze bx center

surround: wharfadale 10.dfs

sub-woofer: wharfadale sw-150

3rd option is:

quad 11 L classic
center: 11 L classic:

surround: wharfadale 10.dfs

sub-woofer: wharfadale sw-150

4th option is:

Warfadale jade 1 setup.

What you people suggest. The above one or some other setup. Please help me out.

Thanx in advance.

[B][/B]Hi Raj, Welcome to the community. Before you pull the trigger, I would suggest that you (if you haven't already) take a listen to the following speakers: Dynaudio, Linn and maybe Focal. Linn was originally designed to be placed close to the wall. Given your restrictions, an entry level Linn speaker might just be a good choice. As far as electronics goes, Marantz is a good choice. However, you might also want to look at Rotel, NAD, Arcam and perhaps Integra Research. Sub: take a listen to ne of the entry level Martin Logan Subs.

This might give you an opportunity to hear something that you may have overlooked. And who knows, you might also hear something that you really like. Good Luck.

you've got absolutely no budget mentioned which makes it harder to assist you. Here's a link to some wharfedale bookshelf speakers and towers.

Since you may have to buy stands for your bookshelf speakers perhaps one of these EVO towers might interest you?
