The attached photo is the medium-sized (I guess medium?...the main floor itself is approx 1100-1200 sq feet total) great room/family room of the home I recently purchased. I will have my TV mounted in the same place above the fire place and am looking to purchase a similar sized speaker set-up w/ a sub woofer. There are two ceiling speakers between this room and the kitchen which is where the photo is taken from.
The current owners front mini bookshelf-sized speakers are Energy brand w/ an Energy woofer. I have no idea what Energy type/line they are.
I am looking for a similar sized, reasonably priced system and am strongly considering the following given some of the threads I read yesterday:Energy Veritas V-Mini Bookshelf Speakers (gloss black)[/U
] - two (2) for L & R of the TV and one (1) Center V-Mini.
> The bookshelf speakers are currently on sale at FS in Canada for $124.95 EA
> The center is currently $199 on sale at FS in Canada
(I have the 3 above speakers on reserve - they're on sale until Thursday, Jan 17, so I would like to decide soon)SVS SB12 Sub
Price as advertised -....probably $750 to Canada. I the look of this one over the PB12 due to its smaller size.
Thoughts? Advice? My rear ceiling speaks would act as the final two to make it 5.1.
This set up will be used for 60% TV-Movies and 40% music.
I also need an amp/receiver and would like to keep it in the $300-500 range. Denon? Marantz? Yamaha? My friend mentioned it should be a receiver with "auto room correction" due to the height of the center speaker.
Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
