I'm looking to upgrade my speaker system, and want to spend $1000 on speakers including sub and another 500 or so on the receiver. I think it's worth pointing out that I am a HUGE movie fanatic, so that's what they'll be used for 99% of the time. I'm not an audiophile, heck I'm not even sure I could tell the difference between a HTIB or an entry level true speaker setup (I'd like to think so though), but I do of course want the best value for my money. The room these will be sitting in (for the time being) is roughly 20x20.
Currently I'm considering these, which seem to be the more popular choices in terms of whats available to me (I'm in Canada, so prices aren't as cheap as my American friends plus speakers seem harder to find)
Receiver: Marantz NR1403 or Denon 1713 (Denon is a touch cheaper but sold out atm and my last receiver is finished, so this purchase is coming first for my mcs90 set)
Fronts: Infinity P363
Rears: Infinity P153 (cant find P163)
Center: Infinity PC251 (cant find 351)
JBL Loft 50 towers, loft20 center, loft 30 bookshelf
The cheapest cost wise out of this bunch would be the Jamo's followed by the Primus.
As for the sub, I have no ideas right now.
