I am willing to scour the forums for comparisons and recommendations but I am finding two problems with this method that waste a ton of time:
1-Reading older posts can get me all fired up for something only to find it is discontinued and no longer available for purchase(energy rc-10, energy s10.3).
2-Deciding on something I like but seeing that people were getting them for a significant discount that I just missed. I understand that sale prices expire, but it makes me think if I wait long enough they will come back to that price.
I admit I am very quick to hit the "start new thread" button, but sometimes timely information is alot more helpful than older discussions.
Anyway, after deciding to upgrade my old onkyo receiver to a new denon 1713 I am now putting my effort into speakers. At this point I am closing in on two options with similar cost, looking for some last minute input.
Used for 95% movies and gaming, 5% music. Max budget about $1000.
Option 1 (cheaper sub, more expensive front)
Front and surround - Cambridge s30
Center- Cambridge s50
Sub - Bic f12
Option 2 (cheaper front, more expensive sub)
Front and surround - Infinity p163
Center- Infinity p351(can i even pair this with 163's or is it made for the tower 363's?)
Sub- Hsu Vtf-1
