So I am looking to buy into a 5.1 system which includes Klipsch speakers (personal taste) and the Rythmik Audio LV12R sub.

 

Looking in particular at these Klipsch models:

 

RC-52 II Center

RB-61 II Bookshelves (Floor standing will not work in my setup due to in wall shelving which will put the tweeter way above ear level)

RS-42 II Surrounds or RS-52 II

 

I have yet to be set on a receiver although Denon/Onkyo would be preferred.

 

Room size: 17' 9" x 13' x 8'

 

Budget: $2,000 (excluding the sub money already set aside)

 

Looking to find a premium receiver and best deal on these speakers.

 

Already have leads with acousticsounddesign.com ($1,497 on these speakers) and AV Science ($1,416 on these speakers).

AV Science is probably going to give you the best deal. Contact them about a receiver as well, something like a Denon AVR-X1000 would work well. It has Audyssey MultEQ XT and networking, however if you plan on going with 4K at some point in the near future, I would upgrade to the X2000. I don't think 7.1 is an option in your room so no need to go with a 7.1 receiver unless you want to power a second zone at some point. Klipsch speakers have good sensitivity so just about any receiver will drive them louder than you care to listen, making pre-outs not necessary.

I will contact AV Science today. Had jdsmoothie from AV Science respond to my thread in the receiver section.  Bond also mentioned the Denon AVR-X2000. I don't really plan on a Zone 2 down the road.

You are likely to get a better deal on everything if you buy it all together, and they are also an authorized SVS dealer, so you may be able to get a good deal on a SVS PB12-NSD wink.gif

Ha, just had a discussion yesterday about the sub and settled for the Rythmik LV12R over the SVS PB-1000. Unless it is a really good deal I wouldn't consider it after reading up on the LV12R from Jim's review and around the forums.
