After getting a new 4k TV, I think it is time to upgrade our sound system to go with it. Currently I have a Home Theater in a box from 2008, Panasonic SA-PT760. I have my devices plugged into the TV with an optical out to the Panasonic.
After doing a little bit of research on AVRs, LRCs, and subwoofers, this is what I was thinking of upgrading to with a budget of about $1500 (ish):
AVR -- Denon AVR-X1500H
LR -- Q Acoustics 3020i Bookshelf (would like to mount on the wall next to the TV)
C -- Q Acoustics 3090ci (Mounted under TV)
Sub -- SVS PB-1000
also thinking of a New 4k player - Sony UBP-X700
Living room is approx 13'x13'. I would eventually like to get rear speakers for the surround as well, but figured a 3.1 setup with a new system would be much better than the Panasonic 5.1 I have currently. Would another set of the Q Acoustics 3020i also work for the rears?
I am not heart set on any of these components, and would consider others. This is just something I put together after looking around various sites, and would like some input before making the purchase. Any help or input you guys and gals could provide would be greatly appreciated!
I'll have to disagree with my friend Russdawg that the Q Acoustics setup you are considering would be severely let down by the center due to dual 4" woofers.
The prior iteration of that center measured as good as any out there when Sound & Vision tested it and they didn't point to it as a weak point and neither have any of the other pro reviews or owners on AVS for that matter.
In my secondary room I use a dual 4" Motion 8 center in 3.2 and it more than keeps up with the LX16s and my room is 35x15.
In your small room I'd actually suggest the SVS SB1000.
Good choice on receiver.
That being said the Axiom setup looks nice as well.
Note the difference in size between the two subs you mentioned and the SB1000.
