Re: Planning a home theater set-up

Hi Blacklightning,

Thanks for your response. I did check out Goldenear soundbar, great reviews. I prefer to do a 5.1 setup. You said about small bookshelves speakers, any suggestions?

I am in fact planning to do a music room in the other room, but I thought to finish with the home theater setup first

Re: Planning a home theater set-up

Okay,

I see what you are after and I have a couple options for you.

First, if you are just after looks those speakers are all great. They will look great if you are able to hide the Wires behind the wall. Stick with the smaller models is bass is not good for all of those options. If you are not going to do a 5.1 system I would just do a Left and Right Speaker and that's it. A better option now that I think of it would be to go with a high end passive Sound Bar.
Like this Goldenear one. (top one)

Second, if you want better sound I would do small bookshelves speakers as you will get far better Sound Quality and deeper bass for sub integration.

Forget the subs from the major brands and stick with SVS, just get the PB model. Bass is what's going to turn you tv room into a Home theater. Spend more money here if you can.


Update for your update: If you are in fact going to do a music room in another room, post again and let us know. A 2 channel setup in a small room is great as along as you have room to place the speakers away from the walls.

Re: Planning a home theater set-up

Hi guys,

I managed to get in touch with the local ML dealer & obtained the below prices. It so happened that they have Paradigm speakers as well. In this case I do not have to pay for any shipping.

ML SLM XL - $1,015
ML SLM - $715
ML DYNAMO 700 W - $997

PARADIGM MILLENIA LP XL - $877
MONITOR SUB 10 - $1,260
MONITOR SUB 12 - $1,477

Any suggestions?

Nothing like that. ML on-walls look great & the reviews were equally good as well. Anything else is also equally fine as long as it serves the purpose.

Are you dead set on the ML speakers?

Re: Planning a home theater set-up

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the inputs. I have decided to go with my initial plan itself. Keep a total budget of up to $ 3000 (excluding shipping). Space concern - A full-blown system in the given area (3.5 mtr x 2.6 mtr) with an open space, is it going to give a good desired effect?

Re: Planning a home theater set-up

I agree with Jim. Nail down exactly what you want, then we'll go from there.

Don't be afraid to pull together a full-blown system. It's do-able with your budget!

=Revised thoughts - After carefully analyzing the available room space (which I never did until now), I am in double minds whether to spend so much for too small an area. I might go with a smaller set-up for the main TV room as shown in the picture & convert another closed room into a music room, where I can listen to my music (I do not want a TV here, will be out of budget...).I have 2 spare rooms available - 3.5 mtr x 4.2 mtr & a smaller one 3.2 mtr x 3.75 mtr...

OH MAN ! I AM A MESS OF UNFINISHED THOUGHTS ! PLEASE HELP
You should finish this thought before proceeding. Until you know what you want to achieve the system will be a moving target that you'll likely never hit. Once a direction/result is clear, then the products should be considered.

One current issue would be getting Sub/AVR compatible to 220-240V / 50Hz
That may be less of an issue then you realize. Most electronics today have the ability to simply flip a switch and go from 110v/60Hz to 220v/50Hz.

Re: Planning a home theater set-up

Currently I have kept the budget as below:-

Speakers - L/C/R - $ 1500
Sub - $ 500
AVR - $ 750
Total - $ 2750 to $ 3250 max

Being in Kuwait, shipping is going to cost me extra. One current issue would be getting Sub/AVR compatible to 220-240V / 50Hz

Is your budget for speakers, sub, and AVR?
His budget might be hard to follow as two $500 items might end up being $600 or $1200.
The best plan of attack might be just to keep it as cheap as possible.

The first thing I would change is to go with a PB1000 for sub as that is an open area.
