Praise da Lawd! So nice to come across someone who has a REALISTIC idea of just how much loudness they really need, for a change. From reading this forum sometimes you could come away thinking that everyone is out to shake the paint off their walls, LOL
A pair of Emotiva T1s + 2 pairs of B1 bookshelves for surrounds would run you just $1300 shipped, as long as you're ok with their aesthetics.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
