I am not an audiophile and need help deciding between these two systems that I have a bead on through local Craigslist ads. I've contacted both sellers so I need to make up my mind in the next few days. I have a large basement with 9 foot ceilings and a 70" Aquos on the wall. Currently I am running with Quintet's with a large off brand 15" sub. The Quintets just don't have any midrange so I have my sub crossed over at its highest . I have an older (8 to 10 years?) Onkyo receiver pushing things. I mostly watch movies and do some gaming on the PS3.
Ok here's where I need the help. I am a Klipsch loyalist but have not owned their bigger speaker lines, just the smaller stuff.
1. RF-62ii Series home theater with no sub (guy is keeping it) - $1,600. RC-62 Center and RS-52 Surrounds. The mains have a month of use and the others are still in the box.
2. This is for $1,000 (I may be able to get it for less) and includes a "newer" AVR but not the most up to date:
*Denon AVR-1910 supports DTS and Dolby Digital Sound, 4 HDMI inputs and 1 output, with remote
*2 - Klipsch KM-6 floor standing speakers (this the military release of the KG 5.5's)
*Klipsch "Icon Series" VC-25 center channel speaker
*2 - Klipsch "Icon Series" VT-14 Satellite speakers
*Mirage Omni S-8 sub-woofer
*Monster cables and connectors
So here is my dilema...go "new" and maybe a bit higher end for the RF62ii's for $1,600 or pay almost half of that and get a newer receiver and some older Klipsch (according to the post he bought the mains in 1998). Here's the link: http://appleton.craigslist.org/ele/3742023601.html
Thank you so much for any help from you pros out there. I am absolutely conflicted. I wasn't planning on spending $1,600 when I began my search, but it seems to be a good price - but spending half and getting a great speaker system and an upgraded AVR (my Onkyo doesnt take HDMI - does this Denon handle 1080p?)
