Bought Denon 3313ci and KEF Q900's + Q600 + Q300 order has been placed
I have been reading your forum reviews and bought a TV, and now it's time to buy a home theater system. I am looking for a system for my living room.I want to have a 5.1 eventually, but for now want to start with floor standing speaker and A/V receiver. My budget is $ 3000 for all three. I am attaching my living room floor plan. Looking at the floor plan do you think a floor standing speaker or full 5.1 system book shelf is good for me ? I am leaning towards floor standing speakers and will add subwoofer, center and surrounds later on. I will be using it for 30% dish, 40% movies and 30 % music.
I have shortlisted a few speakers by reading forums recommendations and your reviews, here's the list :
1> KEFQ900 + Q600 + Q300 (bought)
2> Salk Song towers
3> Philharmonic 2's
Please recommend if you have any other speaker I should consider. I am open for used too. I know it is big list but I want your help to narrow it down according to what should be good for me. This will always be my living room HT system, please help me here.
Bought Denon 3313ci
Out of these I have auditioned Martin logan playing on Integra 80.2, Kef Q700 playing on Marantz 7005 (900's were not available). I liked the ElectroMotion but reviews say they need more power to drive them and I am on budget here. Q700's sounded good to my ear. I also auditioned Klipsch and they sounded little on bright side. i really want good audiophiles sound, I hope you got idea of my taste.
I will really appreciate your help.
Thanks in advance
