I recently decided to upgrade my home theater from a terrible HTiB to a better setup. There was a good deal on Amazon for a Yamaha RX-V671, so I got it. I also ended up ordering a Klipsch HD Theater 1000. I ended up, however, having tons of issues with the sub, as documented here:
Basically, I'm going to have to return the HDT1000 that I have, and since it was fulfilled by Amazon, but not sold by them, I'll only get a refund. I've decided to take this opportunity to look around a bit for something different, possibly better. What I've come up with is this setup:Pioneer SP-FS52
x 2Pioneer SP-C22Pioneer SP-BS22
Plus a sub TBD
. I'm looking at a BIC America F12, but I'm open to recommendations.
The problem is this... I paid $400 for the HDT1000. For the setup listed above I'm looking at close to $700. I know that's not a bad price, and it's a much better setup, but it's still a $300 difference. I have a fairly small to medium sized room in an apartment, so I don't really need a lot, but I plan to move into a house eventually and would like it to remain decent then. Is this really worth $300 more? Furthermore, is it really a good combo with the receiver I have? I could always just return the setup I have and buy the exact same thing. When the sub worked, it was a decent sounding system, if a little lacking in the low range.
The benefit to this is that I can buy everything except the sub at my local Best Buy for roughly the same price (~$20 more than Amazon). This means I can have them quickly with the ability to return them easily if needed (something I'm finding to be a bit of a pain with Amazon). By getting the floor speakers I could also probably put off buying a sub for a little while (until after the holidays) and it wouldn't be that much more expensive right now.
What are your guys' thoughts? Thanks in advance.
