Ok...relatively uninitiated in home theatre audio.
I've just acquired a Denon AVR-1913 and looking for some advice on the speaker front. The system will be going in my great room with a layout as follows:
Note that the room is reasonably open concept on the right to the kitchen and to the bottom to entrance hall.
TV will be positioned on the left wall. The room has a peaked 16 ft ceiling. Plan is to set up 5.1 and use the 2 alternate backs for outdoor. Use will be both movies and music.
Budget is in the $400 - $1000 range. Initial options I'm considering are:
1) Add to my current Energy XL-25 tower speakers. Is this doable? If so, what?
2) Energy Take Classic 5.1 system
3) KEF KHT3005 package with Kube2 sub priced @ $899
4) Klipsch 7.1 package @ $950 with the following elements:
1x Klipsch 10" 225-Watt Powered Subwoofer (KW-100)
2x Klipsch Tower Speaker (F-10)
4x Klipsch Synergy Bookshelf Speaker (B10B)
1x Klipsch Centre Channel Speaker (C-10)
I'm completely open to other suggestions as well.
