Question 1:


Should I get the Onkyo NR-807 or the SR-707? I was going to get the NR-807 for the networking, but already have a WD-TV Live, so do not need the 807 network capability to stream music from my network, or the internet. But would the NR-807 give me any advantage? We have an equal split of TV watching, and music. The 807 is a little high on my budget, but with only a $100 difference between 807 & 707 I would go for it if youe guys thought it was worth it.


Question 2:


I have a budget of $600 for the speakers, I know more money should be placed in speakers, but this is what I have to play with, any suggestions for a 5.1 system. I can use book shelf or stands. Room is cathedral ceiling, with 20x15 room.


Thanks for any suggestions.

I just checked newegg prices on the Onkyo. If that is the same price you are looking than you are spending too much on receiver. With your budget, I would spend around $300-400tops on receiver.


Polk monitor is going to be as close as you are going to get from newegg. Nothing fancy but you can get by. Bic subwoofer.

I was thinking of adding the Klipsch HD Theater 500 Speaker System with the 707, or the Kef 1005.2

go used. check craigslist, im sure you could find something better than the Klipsch satellite package.


Ive seen Paradigm Monitor 9 v2 5.1 setups go for $600-800 on craigslist. They will far outperform those small klipsch speakers
