I'm like a kid on christmas morning...
She-who-must-be-obeyed finally gave me the green light on my first HT.
Here's what's either already sitting in my living room or on the way.
Panasonic 58" 1080p - TH-58Pz700U
Pioneer Elite AVR - VSX-92TXH
Aperion 533-T mains
Aperion 533-VAC center
Aperion 532-LR rears
SVS PB-10NSD sub
Oppo 981 HD
(Will likely add BD but not until after christmas)
Blue Jeans Speaker Wire
Monoprice HDMI 1.3a cables
Studio Tech Ultra U-22T (low boy cabinet)
Here's a diagram of the room. Ignore the reference to the PDP-6010, decided it wasn't worth the extra $1,400 over the Panny...
My main questions are 1) do you think the Pio/Aperion combo is a good one and 2) is the 5 series setup going to fill the room given its fairly big? As I said at the beginning, this is my first HT so I'm sure I'll dig the experience, but I'm also looking for a "blown away" reaction from people more often than not. But now that I've got the speakers standing in the room (just showed up today), they are just a touch smaller than I expected.
I can't wait to get it all hooked up but unfortunately I still haven't received my stand or wires yet so I can't put it all together. Will report back, hopefully w/ pictures, once its all systems go.
Thanks for any input/feedback you have, this forum has been a tremendous resource in my HT education.
