Hey guys this really looks like a great forum!
Heres my deal, just picked up a 55-inch VF551XVT TruLED LCD HDTV from Vizio & mounted her above the fireplace. THIS SYSTEM IS GOING TO BE 90% HOME THEATER USE NOT A HUGE MUSIC GUY AT HOME! Time to retire the old surround sound system due to no hdmi inputs, will be running cablebox, ps3 for bluray, & Wii.
The living room is total 20x20 & tv is 15 feet from the sofa, the room is also attached to the kitchen / dinette another 10x10... I have no idea how much this plays in speaker selection. Ive done a little research & from what ive been told I need either bookshelf or front towers cuz its considered a larger room i guess... seems small to me! i really like the idea of small satelites but im not willing to compromise sound.
Need some speaker recommendations that are quality but wont break the bank, I hate being dissapointed! Are l/r towers really going to make that much of a difference, really want to keep it clean.

Also receivers? This is what im contemplating but once again I dont know anything about ease of use, durability & performance. Ill take any other recommendations that I may be overseeing & may be the better choice. Which brand receiver is the better choice & why?
Im looking at around $1000 budget & do have a KLH 10inch power front firing sub to make do if i piece this together over time.

Onkyo tx-507 80x5watts
Denon avr-590 75x5watts
Yamaha rxv-565 90x7

Thanks guys & hopefully ill have a clue after this is all said & done, im spinning!:huh:

Sounds like you guys are really pushing the towers for my l/r fronts! Someone recommended BIC America Venturi speakers & found them amazingly cheap! Yes Tony I do have all my old system speakers, just some KLH's from Costco. im sure they would be fine for rears as stated while building.
Thoughts, provided link? Keep the posts coming!

How does the recommended Onkyo Tx-sr706 Thx 100w X 7ch theater receiver up converting technology compare to the other receivers I'm considering (Denon avr-590 75x5watts, Yamaha rxv-565 90x7).

Per Jacks advise, I pulled the trigger on the Onkyo Tx-sr706 & she's on her way!!! Now I can atleast fish the hdmi cable & speaker wire in my walls & get set-up for when it arrives. When my head stops spinning from this decision, I can starts stressing again about speakers! Meanwhile keep my options coming on speaker options!
Thanks
