Hello All,


After browsing through these forums for days, here is my first post.


I am looking to assemble a home theatre system for close to around USD 1200-1500. It will be used equally for movies and music.


I have decided on my receiver. a Denon 1611


I need advice on speakers. Space is a constraint so i cant go for large floor standing ones.


in the book shelves i have a choice between

1) Boston Acoustics CS2310

2) Denon DHT 1311


On the other hand Polk Audio has floor standing speakers which are quite sleek and can work with the space constraint.

the RM 7400 / RM 8000


Which ones should i go for?

So, like when looking for a car to buy, you've told us what sort of roads you like to drive on and what your budget is, and some aesthetic/space constraints, which is a good start.


How loud, for how many people? Do you want to get closer to good commercial cinema dynamics?


Usually people starting out underestimate the importance of

mid-bass (the need for larger more capable drivers for handling bass that the subwoofer won't handle),


sensitivity (so that the speakers don't need 400 watts of power for when you want to crank an action movie),


a good center speaker (where, you know, most of the sound comes out of),


and a good subwoofer (an eight inch driver in a sub is great for...romantic comedies. It takes larger drivers and hundreds+ of watts to start to get good bass for movies).


That said, I'd consider a package from Hsu, since they make well-regarded subs, and their speakers have fairly good sensitivity: http://hsuresearch.com/products/enthusiast2.htm l

isolatedisland,


Nothing Eyleron said above is off-base.


I would like to know the dimensions, configuration and surfaces of your room, seating positions, furniture, screen size etc. Depending on some of this info, you may be better off considering a one-wall 5.1 or 7.1 system depending on your AVR/amp capabilities.


Were you planning on dedicated theater, or music also?


Lots of discovery and discussion is possible. Good luck, have fun.
