I am not that experienced with speakers and surround sound so I apologize ahead of time. I just recently bought a Samsung 55" F7100. Now I want a good sound setup to go along with it. Anyways I was at my local Best Buy and was looking at all the setups they have there. A sales associate pointed me in the direction of their Klipsch setups. At first I was looking at a home theater system in a box, but quickly realized the power those things put out is pretty much just plain weak. Here is what I am ideally looking for. I will be watching movies, playing games, and hooking up my PC/Laptop to the TV/Receiver so I will be doing a lot of PC gaming, internet surfing, and that. Pretty much everything you can do with sound I will be doing so I want something that will last me a long time. Something I don't have to upgrade in 2-3 years. In 7-10 years I can understand, but I really want to make this purchase once and be good for awhile. The room this setup will go in is going to be the main living room. I can't say the dimensions because I don't really know. I know I am moving two times within the next three years, so its hard to say. But these definitely will be in the main living room. My budgets was originally $1,000 but if the deal that I am getting truly is a great deal then I have no problem going with it. Anyways here is the setup they mentioned.
Front Surround Speakers - Klipsch Icon KF-28 x2
Center Speaker - Klipsch Icon KC-25
Rear Surround Speakers -Klipsch Icon KS-14
Together they are all normally $1430. They are selling it right now if I buy two KF-28s, and the KC-25 then they will give me the KS-14s for free. On top of that they have the two items I'm paying for discounted to $980 for both. So I would get a $1430 setup for $980. I also would need a receiver with all that and the employee recommended the Pioneer 700W VSX-823-K which they have online for $280. In total my setup would run me $1341 after tax. What do you all think? I don't HAVE to go with that receiver since its not part of the bundle. If you recommend a different receiver which one then? I would MUCH prefer the receiver be dual voltage (110v-220v) because one of my moves is me moving to England and if my receiver is only 110v then I need to get a transformer (another $50-$100).
Anyways I appreciate anyone that takes a look at this and any input you may have. I have updates for this thread get directly emailed to me so any questions and I will response probably within a few minutes. Thanks again and have a good day.
PS: I forgot to mention a subwoofer. I think I'm going to hold off a bit for a subwoofer because I may not need one to be honest because I've never heard an audio setup of the one that I'm contemplating purchasing. I can always add that in later as well since its not part of any bundles right now.
