Old Newb Needs help..
What's up guys. I use to be a fairly savvy audio geek, but about 3-4 years ago I ended up parting with my beloved system to help pay medical bills for my then sick new born. Things are good again, and I'm ready to start rebuilding my Home Theater. I have not kept up with current trends, and I feel pretty out of touch with today's updated technology (wtf is atmos? Lol).
I'm looking to stay in the 1500 range for my speaker/AVR. Right now I'm considering getting the RLS CG3 5.1 OR The SVS prime 5.1 for my speakers, leaving about $500 for my amp/receiver.
In the past I always used accessories for less to get great deals on my AVRs, and I'll probably use them again this time as well.
So I need help in deciding what I really need and what I really don't, when it comes to the receiver. I wouldn't mind getting a older model in order to get more bang for my buck. So this is where you guys come in. I'm posting a link to the receivers listed at accessories for less in my price range, and I would love it if you guys helped steer me in the right direction. Is Atoms something I should care about? Should I be concerned with 4k? (I will most likely be buying a 4k TV, but have not really made a decision in the TV dept just yet).
Also if you have any opinions on the RLS or SVS speakers on which is the better value, please chime in. 1k is my speaker budget, but could push it a little if it's worth it.
Help me out guys! Refurbished isn't an issue, and older tech is great if I'll get a better value in a older set up. Thanks! And..... GO!
