Unless someone has auditioned both of these speakers, it would be difficult to compare them. There was some discussion on the RC-70s here on AVS awhile ago, so perhaps this will help answer some...

That's a great price (Infinity sale price back in 2012 was $400 for the p363). I think the Infinity speakers are 4 Ohm speakers, meaning it may take an AVR with a good amp to drive them. In either...

Yes, it is doable to get a left, right and center channel, plus a subwoofer for $500. I'd avoid sound bars and all-in-one systems. Another gentleman (actually several) had the same question and the...

For such a large volume space, and being open, we could fix you up with a great $5,000 system ;). However, at $500, my suggestions still stand. Read the reviews. Research and audition as many...

I'm a big Martin Logan fan, especially their Summits and Ethos (which I auditioned). I prefer panel speakers over conventional box speakers. That being said, for a 5.1 system I'd forgo the Martin...

Would I? No. That doesn't make the VTF-2 Mk3 a bad deal for $400. It's probably an impressive sub, but I haven't auditioned it. The only Hsu sub I auditioned (30-day home trial) was the ULS-15. ...

^^ Concerning the Outlaw, I believe it is $550, but the shipping may be on you (but check with Outlaw on this). That's why so many people wait for the Outlaw subs to go on sale. Hsu? Heck, the...

Whether any subwoofer will work for you or not depends upon the total volume a subwoofer sees. If we are talking about a sealed room that isn't too much over 2,000 cu. ft., a single $500 sub could...

I'd say that the biggest difference one can make is the subwoofer. Use that $500 and buy a competent subwoofer.

Since you like the sound and looks of the Klipsch, then that is what you should get. The Denon seems capable enough and it's at a great price point. You should look at subwoofers from Hsu, Outlaw,...
