I've been lurking for a couple of months now and am reaching out for a little advice. My living room is 22' x 18.5" and is open to the breakfast area and kitchen. The system will be used for 35% music, 35% TV, 20% gaming, and 10% movies. I'm leaning more towards a 3.1 system and expand it later when we build our next house. I'm trying to keep it under $1700 but do not want to exceed $2000
Reciever - Denon AVR 1913 or 1713 (refurbs from accessories4less)
Polk Audio PSW505 (Amazon)
Focal Chorus 814V or HTD Level 3 towers with Center Channel
I understand that everyone's ear is different, but the only way to audition the HTD's is to take them up on their 30 day in home trial. I'm not bound by the Focals or HTDs, they just seem to fit the bill. Any opinions based on room size and the listening format?
