So im totally new to the Audio side of things. Been pretty much a lurker on the Video side of the island. So its time for me to get an audio system. Been reading ALOT! over the past few weeks trying to absorb it all, and i have narrowed my choices down to a few receivers. I was at first was just going to get a HTIB setup, but decided to buy the Receiver and speakers separate, because it seems like the better idea. I have a 65VT50, Oppo BD93, HR24 HD-DVR, 360, and PS3 that i will all be hooking up. Also have Senn HD598s don't know if that makes a difference or not. I would like to hook the video portion of the bd93 straight to the TV so the oppo is doing all the video processing, and just have the AVR do the audio. My receivers that are on my list are.
Denon 2312ci (one i think im going to get, and pretty stoked about)
I have apple products, so airplay would be nice. Are there any more receivers i should be looking at. Don't want to spend more then $600 on the receiver. Would really appreciate any input you guys have.
the Room its going in:
Its a long rectangle, So its probably about 14ft from the wall the TV is on to the Wall the sofa is on. and Its probably about 24ft long. The wall the TV is on is sorta a floating Wall, with openings on both side. so that wall is only about 10ft long. The setup is in the middle of the room, So mounting speakers directly to the right and left of me on the sofa isnt very doable So i can really only do speakers behind me and in front of me. If that makes sense. so a 5.1 setup for now, but it all could change, and i might change up my Setup to make it able to 7.1
Speakers I just started looking into, but it seems people have liked the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System. Speakers i will probably upgrade down the road, so they will probably be the weakest part of my setup probably. Dont want to spend more then $400 on them atm
