I am pretty novice in this area, so please pardon my ignorance and the confusion.
I am looking at 5.1 home theater system, for which following products have been shortlisted so far.
My usage would be watching movies and listening both video as well as stereo(2 channel) audio songs in a room which is around 15 * 12 feet in size. I am planning to plug my settop box and a blu-ray/DVD player with HDMI inputs to AVR.
I seem to be pretty much convinced with this AVR. Your suggestions are welcome though. I am limited on budget though
Want to stay under 400$ or so.
For 5.1 speaker system I have big confusion.
One system I am heavily inclined, obviously due to price factor is this:
I think this is pretty nice deal, but would like to hear from experts so as to what I might miss. I feel the reduced price is due to its white color, if there are any other intricacies which I missed, please share.
Another system which is definitely not comparable and goes at least double in price is:
I understand these are completely different systems and different price-range but wanted to understand if its really worth to go for HKTS60 with that doubled amount.
What are the things that will be extra in HKTS60 compared to HKTS16?
I could see the power difference for speakers and the fact that HKTS60 has '2-1/2-Way, Dual-Driver Satellites' which includes CMMD Lite. Frankly speaking I couldnt understand what does that mean to me.
The 200W subwoofer looks same to me as I am just comparing the power.
So any comments regarding the merits of HKTS60 will be really helpful.
Apart from this, any suggestions regarding these shortlisted items or any other models/brands is definitely welcome.
I probably stayed with Harman Kardon because I do not have much exposure to the technicalities and wanted to stick to single manufacturer but that is not really constraint.
Considering that I also looked at in-a-box solution by HK
The AVR here is not quite powerful I believe.
and Bose with Pioneer AVR - available at Costco only as a package. Their store has Acoustimass 6 + Pioneer VSX 822 at 800$, which also seems good deal.
And the online store has this one at 1200$
Thanks in advance,
