Ok, so I am pretty much the most indecisive person in the world, and I apologize for that. I have decided there are entirely too many options in the home audio world. However, I think I have narrowed it down to 2 options:


1.

Just get the packaged Onkyo 9400THX system.


2.

Receiver - Onkyo TXNR609

Pioneer Surround Bundle - FS-51 pair (L&R), C21 (center), and BS-21 pair (rear)

Another pair of BS-21 to make 7.1

Subwoofer - either the Energy S10.3 or the BIC F12


Option 2 ends up being about 130 dollars more than option 1, both are in my budget. For home theater, sports games, and some music.


Questions:


1. Given the price difference, which would you choose? It basically comes down to if the different speakers are that much better considering both options have the same receiver.


2. If I decide on option 2, will the non-THX rated speakers make the system not sound as good for movie surround sound? In both cases I will have the Audyssey EQ.


3. If I decide on option 2, is that receiver a good match for those speakers? The fronts and center would have 130w max input while the 4 surrounds would have 80w max input.


4. Which sub would you go with? I am leaning towards the F12.


Thanks
