First off, thank you for any assistance provided.
I just purchased a house with a home theater, electing not to buy the equipment (seller wanted $6,000) and now I need to purchase new. As you can see in the photo they had it professionally set up with 2 theater sofas, 2nd one is on a platform. I believe it is wired for surround on the wall above the first sofa. I don't want to spend a lot of money as I am not an audiophile. I have the Onkyo 7200 system in my condo and it works fine, actually it's too loud so I don't use all the speakers. It's located in a different state or I would just use this system. I'm guessing the room is about 10x22 but I'm not sure. I could just purchase the latest Onkyo HTiB but all the threads I've read here say not to do that.
So far, from my research it looks like the verities v6.2 are a good price right now, $299 each and beautiful! I also looked at the Pioneer SP-F551 $164, Energy RCs $479, and Axiom QS4/8 $500.
I'll need to purchase a projector, leaning toward the Optima HD20/33 right now. Maybe I'll get a PS3 for the BluRay player, not sure. We have a Wii and I have xbox kinect at my condo.
I think I need the following:
2. Front Speakers
3. Center Speaker
4. Surround Speakers (2 to 4?)
7.Blu ray player
I also have the list of equipment the seller had in the room but it's not been easy to find specs as the gear is a few years old. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
