Hi guys, I'm trying to build my mom a decent semi budget system for her new apartment. The size of her tv room is roughly 12x16. The main goal is to get good quality sound without breaking the bank but it should also be relatively future proof so that she can upgrade as and when she has the cash. Small caveat is that she's in India so options are a bit limited. Mainly, it will be used for watching tv and listening to music (classical, jazz) and I'm going for clarity of sound (accurate reproduction as opposed to loud garbage). I've done a bit of leg work and I've short listed what I think is reasonable within her budget. The starred items at the ones I've mentally selected.
Yamaha c444 –$50 more
Yamaha sw215 – $50 less
Total cost with the x2000 is about $1800 (converted) and with the x1000 is $1600. There is roughly a $200 premium on the receiver which is why it's so high. I'm figuring the x2000 is worth it since it does have the ability to upconvert to 4k (future proof?). Normally, I stick with onkyo for receivers but they're very expensive here (can only get a 515 for the same price as the x2000. Let me know what you guys think, would love to have a second opinion.
