Polk Monitor series ii 7.1 Setup help
I'm looking to build my 1st HT, and after much consideration and comparing Polk/Klipsch/Paradigm and their different lines, I've decided that for my first system, I'll stay on the entry level monitor series ii speakers, and buy a really good receiver that can handle a speaker upgrade when the time comes and I really figure out what I want. The main purpose of the HT I'm building will be for watching Movies/Sporting events.
That all being said, I'm looking to do the following, any advice would be appreciated, especially when it comes to receivers.
I already have the CS2 center and Klipsch Sub-12HG Synergy Series.
I'm looking to add Monitor 70's for Fronts, 40's for Surround, and 30's for Rear surround
Would I be better off getting 60's for surround and 40's for rear surround? Or is that just not necessary? I'm looking for a good 7.1 setup, and I may add in-ceiling speakers afterwords (worth it?)
In terms of receivers I am between:
Marantz SR5009 $899
Marantz SR7007 $899
Denon AVR-X4000 $799
Onkyo TX-NR828 $599
Harman Kardon AVR 3700 $999
I really have no clue which way to go with receivers, I just want a receiver that will have enough power to fulfill whats needed of the setup, and probably an additional zone. I know that once you're up in that range you're getting pretty much everything you would need.
Any advice would be appreciated, I'd like to keep this setup for 3-5 years and then really put some money into my next one.
