I've done a bit of research and had some folks more in the know recommend a few things for me. Currently I am using a solid Onkyo HTiB setup but it doesn't support HDMI inputs, a bummer for a fan of Blu-rays who wants to check out HD audio.
I thought about going with another HTiB that does support that but some have suggested just selling it and putting it towards a new receiver and speakers.
I figure I can probably get $200 out of my HTiB, and I can maybe budget another $150-$200 for the time being.These
were recommended to me, and I may actually go with 6 of them, using one for the center and selling the spare 6th one. Ive seen them as low as $120 shipped for 3 sets.This
was the receiver suggested.
I cant really position a 7.1 speaker setup in my current place, so I don't there is a rush on that. This puts me about on budget, with a bit to spare to put towards a sub in the near future.
Does this seem like a solid build? Any other recommendations? Ill probably have to pick up some new speaker wire as well, but I should be good on the stands front and I have a harmony one already as well.
