So I have two options. Piece together my own set or buy a speaker package.
For my piece together option, here is what I have come up with:
Sony SS-F7000 Towers (Left and Right channels)
Polk Audio CS10 (center channel)
Polk Audio PSW10 (Subwoofer)
Sony SS-B1000 Bookshelfs (Surround L&R)
And all driven by either the Sony STRDH520 or Onkyo TX-SR309 for the receiver.
Possible changes to this system would be going with the SS-F6000 towers instead of the 7000 OR switching the Polk Audio CS10 with the Sony SS-CN5000 to free up a bit of money so I can upgrade the subwoofer from the PSW10 to the BIC America F12.
Another assemble my own system option is:
Pioneer SP-C21 center
Pioneer SP-BS21LR (front L&R)
Bic America DV32B (surround L&R)
Bic AMerica F12 Sub
Same Sony or Onkyo receivers as above.
The option for the buy a speaker set and receiver option are this JBL 5.1 set paired with this Pioneer Elite receiver from Costco for $599.
A fourth possible option is the Jamo S506 paired with the Jamo 210W subwoofer with the same receiver choices as the first set. You get a $50 discount if you buy the 506 and sub as a combo.
Any thoughts? I'm for sure open to suggestions on other speakers or receivers, but the total for the system has to be under $650. I can't go over even a little bit.
