Looking to get my home theater started with a budget of $700-$1000.

Considering an Onkyo TX-NR636 for a receiver with a decent set of bookshelf speakers to start. Maybe the Polk Audio RTI A1's.

Planning to shift the speakers to the back when I can afford better fronts, and then I'll get a sub and center.

Any advice on other receivers or speakers that would get me started in the same price range, or will these work?

My sources will be a Roku, Blu-Ray player, Spotify, and iTunes for now. Would like to be able to connect my iphone directly, or use the receiver as a blue tooth device as well.

Thanks for any advice.

Keep a check on Polk's official eBay store because they run good sales on speakers.. Sometimes 50% off or more. Newegg also runs good prices on polk speakers.

Both Klipsch and Polk have great deals going on now. The onkyo you are asking about has a really good review on sound and vision magazine. Google it. I just pulled the trigger on the Denon 2100 and wonder if the Onkyo was a better buy. I have never owned Denon but have owned a couple Yamaha's and a couple Onkyo's. They both were very nice receivers. If you are not sure about speakers I may suggest looking to crutchfield as they have a great return policy.
