I'm looking to spend up to $1000 on a 5.1 amp and speakers. It will be mainly used for watching movies.
I don't need anything too fancy. Just something that sounds high quality and looks good. Speakers need to be small and the rear 2 speakers will be mounted on the walls.
Please let me know your thoughts. My room is approximately 16'x13' and I have a 46" Sony LCD TV - that I'm very happy with.
I will be connecting a Roku to it (streaming from my PC, as well as Netflix, etc) my Blu ray player, Comcast cable HDVR and Xbox 360 all using HDMI.
Thoughts please - and links to a good deal, if known, would be much appreciated.
Things I've considered:
Denon or Yamaha amplifier. Nothing too fancy ~$300-$400.
Speakers I'm struggling with. I like Polk Audio -Blackstone TL1600 ($400) and KEF KHT2005.3K1 - ($499)
Any recommendations on cabling? No more than $150 ~40ft
I have HDMI cables
I will need rear speaker mounts for the wall.
Any help is really appreciated.
