I am looking for some advise to configure and create a surround sound system.
46" Sony Bravia TV
Sony DVD Player
PS3 ( future)
Karoke system ( future ) - optional
Ability to connect iphone/ipad/computer
The home is pre- wired for surround sound in the living room. - Normal speaker wires that go into the receiver and an outlet for the sub in the other end of the room.
2 story living room - 18 ft by 20 ft - 20 ft ceiling
Open Kitchen to the back
6 windows to the right
Stairs to the left
I have also setup 2 speakers in the kitchen for a second zone if needed. However, i now realize that the sound in the living room will be loud already and not sure if i can use it the way we initially wanted )
leaning towards Yamaha RX 575,
also considering Pioneer or Denon
Was considering the Bose Accoustimass 10 - also for size and the look - but am realizing:
1. Not a lot of positive feedback to Bose , esp with used with non bose receivers
2. As the home is pre-wired for a normal system , will have to re run wires to configure for the sub (or) im told place the sub woofer next to the reciever but thats right in front in the room...
Big on Airplay and streaming music and videos
Will mostly be used for streaming music , watching cable/shows and movies at times.
Any thoughts if the bose with Yamaha will provide a good experience and worth the investment to rewire for the subwoofer.
Other satelitte speakers that will provide a similar or better experience ?
recommendations / thoughts on the yamaha receiver and any alternates..
