H, welcome to HomeTheaterShack. If you can provide us with a budget and what preexisting equipment you might have, we would be glad to assist you in anyway possible. Also, is this going to mainly be a Home Theater or will music playback be an important consideration for you.
This is important as some speakers excel in HT while might be lacking in musical playback. Ask any questions you can think of. I know HT can be daunting if you have not been following the developments so please do not be shy.
I've just posted a new thread in the "Home Theater Systems Recommendation" area. Hopefully, I didn't overload everyone with too much info. I just wanted to lay everything I know or was thinking about and get some feedback.
