I have large open spaced living room with 18ft cathedral ceilings. Seating is 12ft from the screen. Currently I have no setup.
I really like the onkyo 626 receiver for its Bluetooth, wifi and zone features. I'm going to stay with a 5.1 setup. I do have a Polk psw-10 sub from my old setup I can use.
Would the 626 suit the open space?
I'm having trouble picking speakers. I'm not sure where to start. Im having a hard time categorizing with so many options. Budget is flexible but I'd like to keep the setup budget friendly. I don't mind waiting and saving up a little more if the speakers are worth it. This setup will be used for video gaming, blue ray, Netflix and HTPC. I figure I start with speakers that suit my environment. Any suggestions?
I would like to wall mount the front/center speakers (TV is wallmounted above fire place) and put the rears on floor stands. I will run as much wiring as possible through the walls.
