I'm trying to set up my first 5.1Ch system which will have to be purchase, pretty much all, from Best Buy.
I'm coming from Bose SR1 and Atlantic Technology PB-235 sound bars. Neither of them gave me any surround feeling. ;(;(;(.
I sill have both of them, but I'm going to return them.
My budget is $1500 for now. I want to start with receiver, two bookshelf or stand speakers and center channel speaker. If possible, I would like buy subwoofer now as well. The rear surround speakers can wait little bit longer at this point.
For receiver I was looking at Marantz 250W slim 5.1Ch @ $399.98
For front side speakers I'm looking at Bowers and Wilkins 6 1/2" 2 way @ $649.98
AT THIS POINT I DON'T KNOW WHAT CENTER CHANNEL SPEAKER AND WHAT SUBWOOFER?!?!
Here is my room set up. Notice hight ceilings and opening to left wall to kitchen.
I will have to buy wires and covers for them as well. I may have to buy speaker stands as well if it won't fit in my side shelves.
Please, give me any advice. Remember that it has to be from best buy.
