Hi people, I'm new in the forum and I'm looking to buy my first 5.1 setup. I live in Costa Rica so brand options are limited and shipping stuff from the US is quite expensive (also my courier company lost a set of Atlantic Technology 2200 5.0 I bought on ebay for $500 so not trying that again)

 

the options I've been listening to are

 

KEF Q500 fronts Q200C center Q800DS surrounds and Q400 Sub ($2750)
Klipsch RF62II fronts RC52II center RS52II surrounds and SW112 Sub ($2648)
Polk RTiA7 fronts CSiA4 center RTiA1 surrounds DSWPRO440wi sub ($1937)
Was also offered a 5.0 bundle of Atlantic Technology 2400 for $1700 but i'm not crazy about them

 

been reading reviews about them and would love to listen to different opinions and advice

 

also considering but waiting for the dealer to send me the price for JBL Studio 580 (or 570 depending on price) fronts Studio 520C center and also asked for a suggestion for surrounds and woofer (not sure it will fit in my budget)

 

looking to spend between $2000 $3000 on speakers and will probably get a Denon receiver for them

really appreciate all the info and help

 

Room is 4m x 6m x 3.5m


AVR: Denon X3000
Front L/R: KEF Q700
Center: KEF Q200c
TV: SONY 46" LED KDL-46W700
Console: Xbox 360

JBL is a strong option

With Atlantic Tech, I would want something bigger than the 2400 series.
