The audio side of the HT equation has me entirely confused.


I want to spend no more than $1000 (euros actually, in france).


Here's what I'm considering:


(1) Denon 1602 (I want the Dolby II for non 5.1 sources)


(2) Jamo e430 PDD package with sub-woofer ( http://www.son-video.com/Rayons/Home...ioneer510.html )


NOTES:

- Not an audiophile

- Looking to experience both the 'explosions' & 'rousing music' of great films

- Would play CDs on the system only casually


APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS GREATLY.


Thanks, HLS.

The Denon is an excellent receiver and a good choice (based on your criteria). I haven't heard the Jamo's, so I can't comment. For dynamics, you want to look for high efficiency speakers (sensitivity above 90dB/W). For explosions, you want a quality subwoofer. I'd suggest spending up to %50 of your speaker budget on this speaker & the rest on the other 5 channels. Perhaps someone who is more familiar with the European market can give actual product suggestions? Speakers like JBL's N-24s and S series may be available over there?
