I'm looking for a little advice...
I just bought a new house and want to upgrade to a home theater system. As always, I am trying to stay low budget since I will have heavy expenses with other things getting into the house.
I am planning to buy a refurb receiver from Accessories 4 Less, either an Onkyo 609 or a Denon 1913. i can get both for $300.00. I am wanting to go ahead an purchase the receiver so that I can use it as an HDMI switch and hide all of my wires behind the wall. I am not wanting to spend a lot on speakers up front, but rather build a nice speaker system over time to reduce the heavy up front expense.
My problem is that I will have this receiver with zero speakers to even use it, so I will either have to deal with crappy TV speakers on my 60" Samsung LED, or continue to use my sound-bar that I have been using the last year or so.
My questions is, I'm looking for ideas on a relatively inexpensive set of speakers that would get me up and running until I can begin to build my permanent speaker set up.
Also, once I start to build the permanent system, what should I focus on first? I would imagine fronts and center would be the most important to be followed by the surrounds, but I will have the issue of a sub also.
Thoughts? Thanks in advance for someone that is new to the forum and looking for a little direction to get me going.
