Thanks joerod for the review and pics!!!
I finally pulled the plugged on some new stuff!! I am replacing a 15y.o. 909pro with a nr807. replacing a 57" Sony projection screen tv with a 52" sammy lcd/240hz 1080p. replacing 15y.o. cerwin vega at-15's with Klipsch rf-52 and adding a velodyne dls-4000r 12" sub. added a LG blu-rya bd390.
I have had zero trouble with my first onkyo so I went with the same brand again.
right now I am running bose satellites for rear surround, center, and front enhanced with my at-15 as primary. I am a little worried about replacing 2 15's with one 12" sub... but everyone says I will be happy. I cant wait to see everything in 1080p and hear in digital surround.
I plan on replacing the center, front high/enhanced and rears if I am not happy with the sound. that will be down the road a bit, this is all i can spend at the moment.
my hardest chose is finding a tv stand that will go with our existing wrap-over entertainment center (golden oak in color). its about5 y.o. and we paid about 1100 for it. dont want to sell it. finding a match 5years later will never happen. I think I will have to go with black or glass.
looking for any input on what this system should sound like when I get it hooked up. ordered from crutchfield, some of it is coming fright and some ups. sooo.... ups will be here before thanksgiving and the big stuff wont be here till dec 3
cant wait to check out the new onkyo!!! next thing.. do I try and sell the old stuff or use it as a 2 channel in the rec-room.
