It may be ok, it may not… just no way of knowing how well those Polk's will sound with the Paradigm's. Personally, I would stick with Paradigm's…. The Monitor 7's are good speakers, so unless you...

You're right in that you want them slightly above ear level and directed towards you. To get good sound, you need good acoustics…. there's just no way around that. How lively is your room? Under...

I actually found that the Darbee significantly improved the picture from my DirecTv more so than it did Bluray… I'd be surprised if it didn't improve cable even more so.

Sorry to tell you, but that's not going to work. All in one systems like this simply won't have the power to run everything. You would need to buy a new receiver (and speakers…) with a zone 2.

I have a 106" Elite with both the 1080p2 and the 4k materials. The 4k is definitely MUCH better. Not the the 1080p2 is not a decent budget solution, especially for an AT screen, but I did see moire...

Honestly, start off with the best 5.1 you can get for $1000 and then add 2 more speakers as budget allows. You're really pushing it with the budget, so better off being conservative to start with.
