I'm finally gonna buy my first HT and wanted advise on what direction to go in. I have a Samsung PN50C550 with a PS3 (Blu-ray and Netflix) and Xbox 360 S (games) hooked up via HDMI. My budget isn't very high but would like to get something decent to start off with.


Option 1. Polk Audio Monitor 70 Series II ($179 each) and CS2 Series II ($99)


Option 2. Jamo S 606 HCS 3 5.0 ($399)


$450 is really the limit I can spend and also plan to get a sub later on regardless of option 1 or 2 (most likely BIC F12???). If I go with the Polk's I'll eventually complete the 5.0 with Monitor 60 Series II. I don't need 5.0 right now if the Polk's would be the better option but if the Jamo is the same or better I can kill two birds with one stone. Any help or advice deciding between these two or even another option would be appreciated.


I'm also looking for a receiver to go with the speakers between $300-400 and was thinking about either Denon or Pioneer. Not really sure on a specific model yet, I'm still trying to figure out what features I would actually need for the speakers I'm gonna get and what would be best for the equipment that will be hooked up to it (PS3 and Xbox 360 S).

With the Polks you'll eventually have four towers and a much larger center. You may want to lean that way if its in your budget.


Of course you're paying about $680 for two Monitor 70's, two Monitor 60's and a CS2.

You'll get more raw output from that system vs the $399 Jamo S606. The Jamo center and sats only have 4" drivers.
