I'm planning on buying a Yamaha HTR-6240BL, a Polk PSW110 Sub, and Polk RM85 Surround speakers...this setup would be for a mix of Bluray movies and music in a fairly small bedroom. My receiver budget is around $200 (that cannot be changed) and my speaker/sub budget is around $350-450...will this setup sound okay together?

Hewy, welcome to the boards. Great to have you here!


But before we can say anything about your choices, we've got to know a little about your room, (fairly small isn't terribly helpful), what you intend to use your system for? (% for Home theater, % for music).


What size is your tv?

As for the size of the room, I am moving in with a few guys and we made the decision on who is getting what room...I would say that they are probably around 10 x 12...my TV is a 37" LCD and I would be using the system for 30% movies and 70% music, but this I am prioritizing this system for movies being that I would really like to have surround

Why don't you call it a $550-$650 total budget instead of limiting the receiver price to $200? I can think of several better options.


1. Denon 591BA - Better receiver with Audyssey room calibration and the ablity to take all analog inputs such as a Wii and output thru HDMI to your TV. Yamaha 6240 doesn't have analog to HDMI video conversion. 5.1 speaker set is by Boston Acoustics. http://www.amazon.com/Denon-DHT-591B.../dp/B003H04Q7S


2. Yamaha RX-V667, Polk RM75 and choose your subwoofer. Newegg is running a special on the 667 receiver where they throw in the Polk speakers. The 667 has 7 channels of discrete amplification, bigger power supply the 6240 (400W vs 270), 6 HDMI inputs including one on front panel. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.556479

Then add whatever subwoofer you want for $150 or less such as the BIC 1020.

3. Polk RM6750 or RM705 5.1 system and add a $400 or less receiver.

That includes the Onkyo 608, Pioneer VSX-1020, Denon 1611 and a few more which are less than $400 on Amazon.com.

For simplicity's sake (and because few AVRS in the price range you cite are worth having), please also consider a nicer soundbar, especially given that it's for a bedroom.
