I want to purchase a totally new sound system setup, but not sure what to do. I have been using a LG HTIB set for about 5 years now, and it was the first surround sound I had ever had. While I did love it I realize it is old and I can get much better sound quality fro a separate component setup. I have been doing lots of reading and research, but with no one to lend a helping hand in my decisions it is a little overwhelming. I would definitely consider myself a noob to all this, but my research has helped. I am looking to try and keep it around $1000 give or take. I have a HD cable STB, PS3, Xbox, and will be buying a 3D Blu-Ray player, all of which I will be using HDMI for. I will need arc support so the internet apps on my TV will come through my system and 3D support for my PS3 and Blu-Ray player. I would really like 2 HDMI outputs, more if possible because I don't want to have to tweak my video settings every time I want to go from a Blu-Ray to the Xbox to Cable TV. My living room,(where it will be set up) is 12' x 11' so I am thinking 5.1(which is what I have now) and also because I dont have the room for 7.2 speakers. I would like the receiver to be able to do a 5.1 as well as a 7.2 in case I move. I would also like to add a buttkicker, or bass shaker to my couch. I just need some help in finding the right stuff. If you guys could please help me that would be great?
So To Recap:
Budget = $1000 dollars give or take a couple hundred
Room Size = 12' X 11'
Components to be Attached:
HD Cable TV Box
3d Blu-Ray Player
Multiple HDMI Outputs
Ability to use either 5.1 or 7.1 Speaker setup
Ability to use a ButtKicker or Bass Shaker
Please Help me with all of this? Thanks
