I'm kinda nervous writing down on this forum.
First of all, I'm a complete novice on this. Know practically nothing about sound, quality or anything.
Anyhow, I'm moving to a better house, I'm setting up a home theater in my living room. I don't want it to be luxurious or anything, but I want to spend money reasonably. It's about a size of 4.5m x 4.5m. and probably with sound proof walls will be installed.
So far, I have purchased Boston Accoustics speaker, and a computer system for controlling the system, Optoma HD20(1080p) projector, which is the cheapter trueHD projector within my budget.
So My final decision should be what AV receiver do I need. and it narrowed down into two.
Actually, two the most discounted price offer AV receivers today.
The price of those two AV receivers are almost identical. So, it doesn't bother me at all.
First one is SONY STR DN1030. It has bluetooth in it, therefore, I might be able to control the product and listen to the music. The downside of it is that it has 1080i video processing. As a matter of fact, I don't know the difference between 1080i and 1080p. I've read some reviews and this might cause a distorted video images? or something. So... And it's original retail price was 500ish.. So overall I get $100 discount now.
Second one is DENON's AVR-1913. It doesn't have bluetooth, so i might have to connect it with USB port. No problem with it, cause most of the time, i might be charging my cell phone when I'm at home. And this one have 1080p. Apparently better video processing, and the calibration system which is proven to be a better quality. And finally, it's original retail price was 600. Which means that this device is created to be better performance.
I have read a lot of articles and reviews ,but it just made me confused a lot.
Help me out please. I have to decide it no latter than a week.
