Thanks

Why banana plugs over bare-wire connection???

Yes the surrounds do not pull as heavy load as the front stage so you can use a smaller speaker, but some movie's do make good use of the surrounds so it is nice to have a speaker that will match the rest of the system. These are just my thoughts as others may be able to offer their take based on their experience. I've set up this system and have found it to work well for movies.
Thanks for the feed back again
I'm contemplating on subwoofers now
I'm looking at the martin logan dynamo 700/500 or the supercube4000/2000
what do u think about martin logan subwoofers?
would the supercube4000 be overkill with a pro cinema 1000 setup?

dudeitsok112,

You'll get more value for money from the Internet Direct (ID) companies that make subs rather than speaker manufacturers who make subs on the side. You might want to do some research on the following companies.
  • Rythmik
  • Outlaw Audio
  • SVS
  • PSA
  • HSU
  • Reaction Audio

Each ID companies make good subs. Consider getting a pair to deal with the room modes and smooth out the bass frequencies at the Main Listening Position (MLP).

Maranatz NR1504, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, LG LW6500, aTV, WDTV Live, Harmony 650 remote, KEF E301, MiniDSP(2x4), Rythmik F12G

I went to Best Buy yesterday and they are running a deal that combines the Definitive pro600 speakers and the denon X2100 for 1000.00. Is that a good deal or not? The room size is a small bedroom. Thanks.

No sorry I have not listened to Martin Logan. I see it only goes down to 29Hz where as the Supercube 4000 goes a little lower. As I mentioned before and as stated in the above post you would be better served by getting an ID ( Internet Direct ) sub. If you have a price your willing to pay like $500 and look at SVS PB-1000, or Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Plus Subwoofer. You will get better sound and feeling for the money spent. All in all though it is what serves you the best. If a small footprint is what your after then the ones you mentioned may work for you. I'd lean more toward the 4000 in my opinion.

To much sub is never enough.. It is better to spend a little more on a sub vs. rest of the system so you have a little headroom to spare and you will be gald you did. Good Luck!

The Denon's price on Amazon is $700 and the 6 piece Pro600 set is $700 for a total of $1400. You save $400 so not to bad and it would work for a small bedroom.

That receiver is 7.1 so is Best Buy giving you 2 extra 600 speakers for the rear surrounds?

The speakers from Best Buy comes with the center, two front, two rear and sub for a 5.1 speaker system. Still hesitant to pull the trigger because the Denon does not have the MHL connection which I don't understand why they did not include that this year in the In-Command models, at least for the 1100 and 2100 models.
