Hi all, audio newbie here looking for some advice and opinions. I am looking at putting together a new system for my home theater. The system will be used pretty much exclusively for movies, gaming, and television. My room is 22' x 13' with a vaulted ceiling of 9' at the highest point. After a couple days of research here is the configuration I am considering:
L/R - RTiA3
Center - CSiA6
Surround - RTiA1 OR RTiA3
Sub - To be determined. Willing to spend in the $500 to $600 range.
I am leaning toward the RTiA3's as my L/R as opposed to any of the floorstanding RTi series mainly due to cost. I would also prefer to not have to supply power in the amounts the floorstanders would require. I am also hoping that a good sub will help with the loss in bass I will have by going with bookshelf speakers up front.
Any thoughts? Would the A3's be better than the A1's as my surrounds in this configuration? Any recommendations on a good receiver?
As far as recommending different speakers, it would be "nice" to spend $1200 or less for L/R/Center and surrounds...but I could be persuaded to spend a little more for a compelling reason
Thanks for any help!
