Would like some opinions on my first HT Setup

For my first HT setup I went with a 5.1 setup that consists of 4 Klipsch R-14M Surrounds front L&R and Rear L&R, Klipsch R-52C Center Channel, 1 Dayton Sub-1200 Subwoofer, and a Sony STR-DN1080 Receiver. I know the receiver might be a little weak for this setup but for now until I get more money to upgrade it will have to do. Any opinions are appreciated I am still learning and appreciate any feedback I can get. Thanks!

Klipsch speakers are notoriously easy to drive, so the Sony AVR shouldn't really have any issues. All of that really only comes into play if you decide you want to listen to things at ear-splitting/bleeding volume levels.

Home Theatre: Onkyo TX-NR747 | Polk Audio RTi A3 Front L/R | Polk Audio CSi A6 Centre | Polk Audio RTi A1 Surround L/R | HSU ULS-15 MK2 Subwoofer | Sony XBR55X900E | PlayStation 4 Pro | Xbox One S

Music: Cambridge Audio AXR100 | Stanton T.62 | Cambridge Audio AXC35 | KEF Q150 L/R | Elac S10EQ Subwoofer

Thanks Ryan! Also should I just feed all hdmi cables from my media devices to my TV then optical out from TV to Receiver? Does it matter if I go this route vs feeding all hdmi's to the receiver?

I would connect your devices to the AVR and and run an HDMI from the AVR to the TV. If you go from devices to-to TV-to AVr I would still use an HDMI cable if eARC is in play.

Feed devices to AVR and run 1 HDMI to TV. Although some TV's offer lower latency on certain HDMI ports for gaming so if you game and your TV does that you may want to run Your gaming rig HDMI to the TV on it's own.


The RM-14 are rated at 90db sensitivity so they are easy to drive but on the lower end for Klipsch in general. They are rated at 50 watts so I think your AVR will be plenty powerful enough for them. Your center channel is rated at double the power (100 watts) but also much more sensitive at 95db so You should have no problem getting great clear dialogue from it.

Now sit back and enjoy until the upgrade bug bites you! lol
