I am a new member of this forum. Thanks for the tons of information in this thread - I went through the first 90 pages during the last couple of weeks and still continuing
I have a ~13x18 room with 8ft ceiling where I am putting a 110-inch projector screen and 5.1 sound. It isn't a dedicated home theater room - I avoided going for floorstanding or bigger speakers so that kids don't bump into them while playing. Planning to go for this configuration for the speakers:
1. Promonitor 1000 for Front L/R (already bought)
2. Procenter 2000 (already bought)
3. PL-200 subwoofer (already bought)
4. Promonitor 800 for rear surround (to be bought next month)
I have a question related to AV receiver choice. My budget for the receiver is <$300. Last month, I bought a Denon s500BT receiver after seeing that it has bluetooth and because of Denon reputation. Now when I started going through this thread, I found discussions on Audyssey - which this receiver doesn't have. I am thinking if I should forget about bluetooth (as I'll be mostly watching moves 80% of the time) and go for Denon AVR-e300 which is also in my budget. Today is the last day I can return s500bt. The e300 doesn't have bluetooth but has airplay. It has the Audyssey that everyone talks about and has slightly more power wattage than s500bt. I don't care about the 4K passthrough at present but need 3D passthrough.
Any other recommendations will also be appreciated.
