Re: Initial HT research

$200 for speakers, I'd do the Behringer B2031P. The Onkyo should serve you well! look in the speaker forum for info. The combo is unreal. Just use the HDMI and set up Audyssey.

Easy Peasy,

Dan

Re: Initial HT research

Hi All,
Sorry that I didnt respond for a while. For some reason I was not getting updates of this thread to my email account. Anyways, Thank you for all your comments. After looking at all your responses, I think I understand that I have to go listen to then and see if it suits my taste! Thanks for your suggestions. I think it will take a couple of months for me to come to some conclusion. One of my colleauges recommended the Polk Audio RM705. Even before I could try that out I would like to know if it is even worth trying.

I will post my trials as and when I do it .

Read this first: http://seanolive.blogspot.com/2009/0...o-product.html

Then look for measurements and save yourself a lot of trouble.

Re: Initial HT research

Kozak,
I agree with the guys above about getting two good speakers and then adding a sub later as funds (or tax returns) come up. If you truly want to get a home theater on that budget then I would into the Onkyo HTIB series. That is actually how I started out and it was good. Speakers sound pretty good for the cost. Eventually I upgraded my speakers and then my receiver, but it was a good way to get the HT but start out within budget. You can find some good deals online and even include free shipping, just looking at Google shopping. Hope you enjoy your system whatever you get.

Re: Initial HT research

Thank you for your reply !!!! I am thinking of getting a pretty good receiver and then build on the speakers slowly. For now I am thinking of getting bookshelf speaker pairs. I came across this ad "Polk" and am thinking on buying that.
