hopefully I am following all of the rules here...
I am buying a home theater setup for the first time, ever...and have never been much of a speaker guy. or a home theater guy. having said that, i would like to do it right, or as right as the budget allows. As the title states, I am limited to about $1250 max for the speakers/sub, and am "planning" on pairing it all to an Onkyo TX-NR626 Receiver (open to suggestions, but am getting that for about $675 delivered).
The room this is going in is 17' deep and 12' wide, with a 10' ceiling. It is a new home, less than a year old, but built by a "production builder" and not exactly custom, so it is not sound-proof or anything like that, but I am not too worried about that at the moment. The video portion of the ht budget is most likely going towards an epson 5030ub, with a vapex 120" fixed screen. Again, open to suggestions, but this isn't the right forum. (but for the record, the 5030ub, 2 x 3d glasses, ceiling mount, cover, screen, 35' hdmi 1.4 cable and screen for $3000 delivered)
So, the speaker sets I am looking at are as follows:
Klipsch: $1200 delivered
2 x RF-42 II towers, 1 x RC-42 II center, 2 x RS-41 II surround, 1 x SW-110 sub
Premier Acoustic: $1250 delivered
2 x PA-8F towers, 1 x PA-8C center, 2 x PA-8S surround, 1 x PA-150 sub
I'm an audio noobie, and I've heard of Klipsch, but never Premier Acoustic. can't find much on the net about them, but most of the "legitimate" sounding stuff seems favorable. warranty sounds the same, and they have been around a few years now. only threads i see on them with any traffic are fairly old.
anyway, thoughts? better suggestions for the money?
if i go premier acoustics and go a level down, to the 6 series and a 12" sub, i could get an extra pair of surround speakers for 7.1 for $1200...so that is a thought.
