My parents old crappy HTIB that they bought for 300 - 400 bucks a few years ago just died. It had those dvd player,av receivers. 6 Disc changer kind of crap hehe


Anyways I want to get them a new set up.


<1000 total.

Has to include:

1x Receiver
2 Fronts
1 Center

Sub later, not needed right away. They don't care for bass.


I was thinking a low budget Denon Receiver <250 dollars.

2x Mythos 6 floor standers and if money is left a DefTech center?


Reason why I chose the above set up is because I have a Denon/Def Tech set up right now and love it, plus the Mythos looks very nice with it's glass stand.


Any other suggestions you guys may have for me? Can't be a bulky set of speakers. Must be as small as possible/slim. Good looking. Visuals first, sound quality 2nd.


Thanks!

Projector: AE7000
Screen: 5x12 Wilson Art Laminate Designer White
Receiver: Denon 2112Ci
Fronts: DefTech 8020ST
Center: DefTech 8040HD
Side Surround: DefTech SR 8040 BPs
Rear Surround: DefTech PM 1000s
Subwoofers: 2x HSU VTF 15H's

The XTRs from Def Tech appear to be the "perfect" speaker for them. It's slim, sleek, and doesn't take too much space but they are very expensive at 700,- a pop. Unless someone knows a place to buy them for cheaper? I bought most of my speakers at Electronics Expo for an amazing deal, but they don't sell the XTRs

Small speakers usually do not have much base. I was going to suggest a Pioneer VSX-1022-k $250, Pioneer FS52 X 2 = $200, Pioneer CS22 $100, Klipsch Reference RW-12d $300. For a total of $850.00. These are rather medium to large speakers. What's the room size?

I've had the older Pioneers. Way too bulky and look terrible. Sounded ok.

Room size doesn't really matter as they don't care about sound quality much. It's about aesthetics mostly. Plus they don't need a sub right now.
