I am having a dilemma deciding on what speakers to get. Perhaps those who have heard them can help me decide. Feel free to throw out others not listed here.
Due to WAF and room size, I am limited to bookshelves for the L/R and in-ceiling speakers for surrounds. This will be a 5.1 system only for now. Do not want large bookshelves. The candidates I list below are about the limit in size I would like to stick too.
Sitting distance is only 6ft from the center, and maybe 8ft from the position of the L/R
My focus is on HT/Movie performance. 2ch music probably only sees 10-20% max use.
AVR: Onkyo TX-NR3008
SUB: PSA V1801
Here are the candidates I have come up with based solely on research. I have only been able to listen to the Klipsch and Def techs at my local Best Buy.
L/R: Klipsch RP-150m
Center: Klipsch RP-450C
Surrounds: Klipsch CDT-5650-C II
L/R: HSU HB-1 MK2
Center: HSU HC-1 MK2
Surrounds: ? (Perhaps the RSL C34E would match okay?)
L/R: Chane A1.4
Center: Chane A2.4
Surrounds: RSL C34E? Or something else to better match?
L/R: Definitive Technology SM45
Center: Definitive Technology SM65
Surrounds: Definitive Technology DT6.5R
L/R: JBL Studio 230
Center: JBL Studio 235C
Surrounds: JBL Studio 2 6IC
I have zeroed in on these ones. Hope to hear opinions of AVS steer me in a direction. Thanks!
