New here on the forum. Have been reading quite a bit over the past weeks. I just received my new receiver (yamaha RX-A1000 (7.2 130watt per channel)). All connected, but missing all the speakers. Have a couple of sonos speakers throughout the house, and a horrible soundbar I got with my wife ;-) It is time to start upgrading, so we can really enjoy movies and eventually hook it up to the sonos system.
Checked out a few demo set ups at freys, and as of now leaning towards polk. Due to several projects, upcoming baby and compromising with wifey it is going to be a project that will slowly finalize.
With that being said, I am planning to first get the floor speakers, followed by a sub then the center speaker, and finally the bookshelf (rear/surround) speakers.
The living room, is pretty big, about 25 x 18 ft and additionally a semi open kitchen attached.
Floor speakers; Polk TSx440t
I like the speakers to be all the same brand/line if possible. The sub can be a different brand, and have no idea which one as of now. The TSx440t are on special this week for 279 each, which seems to be a great deal based on the pricing i've seen online. All together in the above setup I am guessing it will cost me around 1200 to 1400 to complete the system.
Would this be a good set up or is there something better out there for this price range. Since its going to be a +/- 12 to 18 month project it is okay of the cost is slightly higher.
Thanks a lot!
