Hey everone, I'm really glad I found this forum as I'm just about to build my first home theatre setup, I'm really new to the scene, I've never even experienced surround sound (other than full blown cinemas). Currently got a Sony 48" KDL48600B tv with an Nvidia Shield on which I use Plex 95% of the time with hardwired ethernet connection throughout my condo (which I bought not too long ago). I figured, the last step is to add a proper sound system and call it a day.
I'm coming from a background in graphic design (been working in the field for 15+ years), photography, a lot of electronic dance music, some DJ experience and am generally pretty good with PC builds (currently running a Hackintosh). So, I'm pretty tech savvy, just not so much in the audio world.
