I am looking at purchasing the Denon AVR-1913. We have a bit more of a different room then most, I think.

I dunno what speakers to get. The current TV is in the same spot as the old one (in this picture).

As you can see, it's a bit of a different layout imo.

I am not 100% set on the AVR-1913 however from the reviews I've read, it's a pretty good system.

I'm new to AV. So Any suggestions of pieces of advice would help.



I am planning on using the 2nd zone for our hot tub in the back yard through wireless speakers.

I've got the 1913 running with PSB speakers. What's your budget? The image line is what I picked up, two towers, 4 surrounds, a center, and 2 klipsch subs. I would recommend picking up a 3313 right now though, as they're super cheap, and have extra features such as a phono input, more watts per channel, and multi EQ with 8 measurements as opposed to 6. I'm happy enough with my 1913 mind you, it sounds great.. but being picky a bit more power for 7.1 sound would be beneficial. Might not be as much of an issue if you're only going 5.1. Here's the link to PSB speakers, they really sound awesome IMO. http://www.psbspeakers.com/products/image

Was hoping for around $500 for the receiver...

$200-$300 per set of 2 speakers...but i dunno.

What would you suggest with my setup?

I have the denon 1913 and like it, no problems. The ebay store for wwstereo.com has the denon 1713 on sale for $350. It is only a 5.1 channel receiver but has the superior audyssey calibration and would be a good bet if 5.1 is all you need.

I don't have any input on the sound but one suggestion on the room. Take the TV out of the corner and put it in the center of the wall to the right of the picture. That will give better seating, viewing and listening angles. Hope this helps.

That's not much to spend on speakers... Before my PSB's I had Fluance speakers. They're budget, but sound better then the money that they ask for them. Cnet reviews agrees with me: http://reviews.cnet.com/surround-speaker-systems/fluance-av-htb-5/4505-7868_7-20984105.html ... I had next model up, the SX series, http://reviews.cnet.com/surround-speaker-systems/fluance-sx-htb/4505-7868_7-21114465.html ... and if I didn't have the money for my PSB's ( 2000 + dollars ) I'd have stuck with them no problem. I especially liked their SX towers. Anyways, food for thought smile.gif

FYI: On the other side of the fireplace (on the right) there is another couch.
