One of my first post obviously. This site is huge and I am bit over whelmed by all the info floating around here.
I am not an audiophile by any means but I do want quality sound. I also do not want to spend half the price of a decent automobile on my home theater set-up at the same time.
What I am looking for is recommendations(both in where to search, or product you you like and would recomend) for a home theater 5.1 speaker system in my living room.
After a bit of research I settled on the Denon 1912 receiver. Mainly due to the streaming capabilities and the fact that it was about $75 cheaper than the Yamaha 475 I was looking at(I hope I mad ea decent choice). I also enjoyed the way the Denon looked in comparison slightly better to the 475.
I am now looking for a 5.1 setup I can be happy with. I know this 1912 is a 7.1 receiver, and I may visit that after I purchase a house a bit later on in the year. But but right now 5.1 will fit my needs, budget and room fine I believe. This will be for 75% TV 20% movies, and 5% Music.
My room is about 15x20'. Hard woods throughout. I do have a dining room attached that will add another 100ft^2 as well as another sitting room with tile that is another 100ft2 at least. I am not 100% sure how much this will effect the acoustics, but you all seem so knowledgeable about this stuff that I think I would do better having you know about the flooring and additional rooms than not.
So, I have a 60" Samsung that this will be based off of and the Denon receiver. I am open to all options at this point for the speakers but Ideally would very much like to keep this under a $1000 I think at the moment. If that is not doable for a half way decent 5.1 setup in this size room I understand, and will just start with the fronts and Sub for now(Or whatever you all suggest). But if anyone has any delightful ideal setups that could work for me I am open.
Also, I am not asking you to tell me what to get if you don't want to. I hate as much as you all do newbs coming on forums and asking the same questions all the time. I am willing to search, I just don't even know where to start on this forum. But it seems this forums is the Rule when it comes to AVS and figured I would throw this out there.
Any input is appreciated.
