I need some advice. I am looking to purchase equipment for a new media room (movies and music both). I am having a hard time deciding between a single high end receiver (like the pioneer sc-68) and a good combination of separates.
Requirements: 7.1 capable. Must have 7.1 analog in. Solid power (5000 cubic foot room).
So, if you had $2500 to spend, what would you buy?
Is the $2500 just for your electronics or speakers too? If you haven't purchased your speakers yet then I'd recommend starting with those and building around. If you have purchased your speakers then what do you have and how many?
