I know aboslutely nothing about speakers or home audio systems. Yes, where do I turn my man card in?
Anyways, I just moved into a new condo and I want to set up a decent system. Does 800 do that? I have no clue.
Let me tell you what i'm looking to do, how large my room is, etc.
My living room, dinning room and kitchen is basically one long rectanble that is 13ft wide and 32ft long.
The living room is 13ft wide and 12ft long, although it's really more like 18ft long as the living room blends into the dinning room that blends into the bar top of the kitchen.
I'm looking to spend around 800 bucks, although if 200 more gets me something a lot better I'm willing to spend that.
I guess what i'm looking for is a receiver that can be networked. I wanted to be able to listen to music from my laptop, phone and ipad if possible and stream it to the speakers via the receiver. I mostly listen to pandora, but I do have a large mp3 library too that I would like to play using itunes.
I listen to a lot of music, mostly classic rock, alternative and some of the new folk rock.
I watch tv (too much), and I'm a huge football fan.
So as far as speakers go, I don't know. bookshelf or floor? Do i blow all the money on a receiver and two speakers? Or do I divide it up and get a center speaker or a sub? I have no diea.
I want my tv audio to sound better and I want my music to sound good. That's all I care about.
I was going to buy a speaker bar that had bluetooth and that would accomplish most of what I want to do, but after listening to them in person I wasn't that impressed. Maybe that is a better approach for what i'm looking to do and I didn't hear a good one.
anyways, any recomendations would be appreciated.
Like I said, around 800 bucks. Thanks in advance
