Novice and first time Home theater system builder.
Need some advice from the experts/gurus out here

I am getting 2 Def tech bundles for around the same price :

1. 2 Def Tech BP-8060ST, CS 8040HD and 2 SR 8040BP

2. 2 Def Tech Mythos XBR-50, SC4000, and 2 XTR-20BP

I can't demo these anywhere, so what I want to know is which one would be more realistic and better in terms of overall value+performance+longetivity package ?

Also, is there any other 5.1 system in the same price range (around 2k), which might be better ? My room is a typical apartment room, and I mostly watch TV, movies and occasionally music.

Thanks so much guys!

I'd go for the 8060 package. It would be plenty for an apartment plus the 8060s sound great. But you may need at least a foot behind the speakers to have them work the best.

Can you tell me what made you go with 8060ST over the slim mythos xtr-50 bundle ?
From what I could gather, the mythos xtr-50 speakers always require the sub, and standalone they are like any other average speaker set as they will not go low (meant to be wall mounted/shelved). The 8060STs dont require any sub , but I can still add one later if needed.

I just picked up my Def Tech "Bundle" today. I went to Magnolia room to listen to them a couple of weeks ago and they were extraordinary. They sounded great for both movies and music. No experience with the other bundle. Don't think you'd be disappointed withthe 8060s.
