First of all thank you all so much for all your info! This site combined with a few other resources helped me out a great deal while deal hunting.
I hate to be one of those "is what i bought good?" guys but... could anyone perhaps answer this exact question? I would just like to know if i screwed up anywhere so i can bring anything back during the return period.
-I got a Harman Kardon AVR-1700 open box at best buy for $150
-While at best buy and perusing their open box items i also found a pair of Polk T15's for 35 bucks.
-Based on these polks and suggesting to match cone size etc i grabbed the polk CS10 center channel at full price from amazon
-For a sub and based on a few suggestion i grabbed a BIC America F12 with the idea i won't have to upgrade for a while
Basically I'd like to know if i made any mistakes or if i could have gotten a better bang for my buck anywhere. Also sorry if this is not where i should be posting this.
