Considering home theater for my living room - Page 2

post #31 of 41
I've heard focal domes in larger rooms and they were fine. I'm guessing the sub is what is lacking. You could also just get the satellites and buy a beefier sub.

Your situation is purely casual listening being that it'll be up in the corners 11ft high. having ugly bookshelves up there will be an eye sore. I'd just do the dome and get a larger subwoofer if you're concerned about filling your space.

I can't seem to find them for sale online, and the one place that I did find them they were 2500 dollars, which is way over my budget. Ok looks like I'm gonna get the sz's what receiver do you think I should get with them?

I would see if you can find a Denon AVR-1713/1913. They are last years models and you can get a good price on them, there aren't many worthwhile changes in the new X series. The 1713 has Audyssey MultEQ XT compared to the 1913 with just MultEQ, but the 1913 is 7.1. Either will offer plenty of power/connections (unless you have a lot of legacy devices).

I went to best buy today and I liked the definitive pro monitor 1000. How are these speakers? The total came out to 1400 for the speakers, so I guess I have now increased my budget to 1400.

If you like the DT Pro Monitor 1000s, I'd recommend going with them. Trust your ears smile.gif

However, avoid the DT subs unless getting about 50% off MSRP. There are much better deals to be had for subs with room filling bass if you consult the AVS subwoofer forum.

+1 on both counts.

Yeah but there are alot of speakers best buy didn't have, so I was just making sure before I pull the trigger on the dt pros. After all 1400 is a lot of money to regret spending later.

What were you getting for $1400? Just speakers? A sub? A receiver, too? If just speakers, I would look at ARX A1b, HSU HB-1 MK 2, and Ascend Acoustics CBM-170 SEs.

I get $660 total for two pairs of bookshelf speakers and the center.

Where is the $1400 figure coming from?

2 pairs of bookshelves, a center, and a sub. I believe this is the setup http://www.definitivetech.com/products/procinema-1000
Each speaker is 219 dollars, where did you find it for 660? Now that I think of it the B&W 5" are the same price, as those are sold in pairs, and i thought they sounded better. I am unsure once again.
