I'm looking into the possibility of getting an audio system to augment our flat screen TV. First of all, the high level constraints:
  1. Room is ~13'6" x 18'6", and is part of a freestanding house.
  2. TV is 52" Samsung LCD
  3. Looking to spend ~$1k
  4. System is used for TV, gaming, and movies primarily


From lurking around here, the rough draft of parts I've currently got is this:
  1. Onkyo TX-NR609 ($399.00 from Amazon)
  2. Polk Monitor 60C Series II x 2 ($110 each from Newegg)
  3. Polk CS1 Series II Center - ($65 from Newegg)


The questions I've got are several - are the parts I've got listed reasonable selections? Should I be adding surrounds or a subwoofer to the system (if so, what?) Am I sizing this system approximately correctly?


Here's an approximate layout of the room, which I'm also trying to figure out updating the layout to get the system better laid out.

It looks like the subwoofer to aim at with this budget is the BIC F12? ($184.31)


Is the Jamo set better than those Polk speakers? I added a pair of Polk Audio Monitor30 Bookshelf speakers for surrounds, and the total came out to $415.94 for the 5 speakers, which edges out the Jamo speakers on price slightly (for black finishes). However they're the same general setup, so I don't know if they're very similar, or what.


I guess for reference, here's the list as I've currently got it estimated:

Part Price Qty Subtotal

Onkyo TX-NR609 $399.99 1 $399.99

BIC America F12 $184.31 1 $184.31

Polk Audio Monitor M30 Bookshelf $89.99 1 $89.99

Polk Audio Monitor M60 Floor $109.99 2 $219.98

Polk CS2 Series 2 Center $99.99 1 $99.99


Which totals $994.26.
