Hey guys, new poster to the forums, but have been reading posts on 5.1 advice and think I am finally ready to buy something and would greatly appreciate your input.
Here is what I have to work with:
Room - 20x14, cathedral ceiling, TV mounted above fireplace
Budget - ~$2000
The wife is really against a big bulky setup so anything like that is out of the question. After reading countless reviews I am leaning toward a KEF 305 setup due mainly to their good performance out of such a small footprint.
I would possibly consider a not-too-bulky floorstanding set if you guys don't think the KEF set will be able to fit my needs.
Also what receiver would you recommend (something that will be adequate but trying to keep cost low).
Lastly if I do get the KEF 305's would mounting them beside the TV cause any problems since it is just a little above head level while sitting?
Lots of questions but trying to be thorough with my info, also open to all suggestions....thanks in advance!
