I plan on getting a 2.1 setup and most likely will not be upgrading. I am getting the Denon AVR-790, along with one set of speakers and woofer:


Polk Audio RTi A1

Polk Audio RTi A3

Klipsch RB61
Energy CR-10

Energy CB-20

Polk Audio RTi4



Klipsch 10" (RW10D)

Polk Audio 12" (PSW125)

Energy ESW-C10

Velodyne DLS-4000R

Denon AVR-790

Onkyo TX-SR607



I heard the RB61 has very bright highs; will the woofer make up for it?


Also, what would be the pros/cons of getting a HT receiver vs. stereo receiver for a 2.1 setup?


Cheers

Klipsch are known to be bright because of the horns they use. I heard a horned speaker at Radio Shack the other day that sounded quite pleasant. Rtis are also known to be bright also especially with music http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...6#post17712246


For comparison listen to some Infinity Primus models at Frys and warm and neutral Energy RC models like the RC-10.

I would suggest you go listen to them before making a purchase. I would also do more research on subwoofers in the subwoofer forum before deciding to jump on a Polk or Klipsch sub.

I was browsing the forums and noticed many suggestions on the BIC/ F12


I should have mentioned this earlier: I am purchasing a 2.1 setup with no budget, as I will be returning them for sure (relatives here on vacation and want all of us to enjoy something more than TV speakers).


In my original post, I added a few extra speakers/subs/receivers (in bold). If one were to choose out of these, which would be the best combination (no budget!)

If you go with the Klipsch, you gotta let them break in before you pass judgements. I have a smaller pair of bookshelves and they sounded thin at first. After they broke in, they really opened up and actually sound very nice now.
