I'm copying this from a thread I started (but got few replies):
I need advice for a home theater sound system. I recently got a Pioneer Elite PRO-150FD, and just ordered an HD-A35 HD-DVD player. So visuals, check. Now, I need advice on sound, which I know next to nothing about.
My room is about 14" wide, and my plasma set will go right in the middle of the wall. It is about 12" deep, so my couch will be about 11" far from the display. The ceiling is about 8" or 9" tall.
The receiver I've got my eyes on is the Pioneer Elite VSX-92TXH. Too bad I really am only looking at it because it's aesthetically pleasing and people seem to agree that it's a great receiver. In fact, I've never even connected anything to a receiver before (plan to have friends help out with this). On a tangent, I can connect a theater system directly to the television or disc player, right?
Anyhow, let's say that I don't want to spend much more than $2000 on the speakers, unless there's a really compelling reason why an extra few hundreds bucks or so would really make such a difference.
Does anyone have any advice? Broad notes such as where to focus my attention, brands, how speaker setups work in general etc. and narrow notes (specific models) would both be appreciated.
I've looked at Aperion Audio systems, and they seem quite affordable. But almost too affordable. Since this is an Aperion thread, I was wondering if people could give a brief list of models to note from this brand...I'm looking at two towers in the front, smaller speakers in the back.
