I currently have a Cinemate Series II that I'm going to take back, I do like the sound quality and REALLY like the small footprint. But, I'm gonna sell my townhouse next spring and will want a better system so why buy the Bose now and have to sell it when I move and then rebuild a setup. Once I sell the townhouse next year the Polk's could be used for rear surrounds, I'll just run it as a 2.0 or maybe pick up a small sub and go 2.1. I mainly watch movie via my WDTV Live Streaming.
Was thinking picking up:
Polk Audio Bookshelf Speakers (RTIA1) or Energy Veritas V-Mini Bookshelf Speaker (VMINIB) or maybe some used Cambridge audio S30
Pioneer 5.1 Channel Receiver (VSX-522-K)
A couple of questions:
1) How will this sound compared to the Cinemate?
2) Can the bookshelf speaker lay on it's side? Current tv shelf has a max height of 8" and can't place speakers elsewhere
3) Should I get the Polk or the Energy? The Energy speakers are about $80 cheaper
I can only do this if the speakers can lay on their side, if not I'm stuck with either the Bose or a soundbar again.
Thanks for any help.
