Hey guys, new to the forum here, looks like there is a wealth of information! I couldn't find the "new guy" forum here at AVS so I chose the closest one I could find.
After spending time with friends who have different setups I decided that I really like Polk products on the 3 following factors, Sound, Money and Form. They all seem to please me well. Below is what I'm interested in getting along with some other information. Let me know if I should change or think about anything if I don't mind. Even though I like the polks, I'm open to anything.
$2000-2500 ish give or take, it isn't really set. I would like to stay away from $3000 though.
Room size is roughly 12 X 25. The room has a partial wall on one side up by the TV but that only lasts about 6 feet, past that it opens into another room. Also, where I set my TV there is a door to a bathroom on one side and a rarely used closet on the other. That said I have to be mindful of the total width of everything included. I wouldn't mind moving the sub to get into the closet occasionally but the sub AND a speak might be a bit much.
TV: Samsung 51" E8000 Plasma
NEED TO GET...
Receiver: Onkyo TX-NR616
Center: Polk CS20
L/R: Polk TSi400
Surround: Polk TSi300 (I know this one is sort of a "to each their own" sort of thing with respect to floor standing, bookshelf or true surrounds. Based on what I've been reading a floor standing model of some type will work best for the room I have to work with and the fact that I rent which makes mounting speakers a bit difficult ... either way, still open to suggestions here)
Sub: Polk DSW Pro 550wi (I've heard this one and it sounds amazing... to me. I was originally looking at the PSW125 until I heard it and was not impressed)
So that's where I'm at ... sorta just staring at the information these days and its all starting to blind me. There's so much!
Thanks for any input!
