I'm due for an overhaul...finally ditching the Bose 3-2-1!! It served it's purpose, but I'm ready to send that thing to Craigslist. After doing some research, listening to speakers, etc, I have decided to go 3.1. I don't particularly care for rear surrounds, nor do I want to drag cables through my walls, so 3.1 it is. My main gripe with the Bose setup I have is that I am apparently deaf and have serious issues hearing dialogue. TV/Movies 85%, Music 10%, Wii 5%. Budget up to $1300, but hopefully less. For my living room -- viewing area 13' x 14' with one end open to the dining room/kitchen. Yup, you guessed it...I'm female. I'm the "wife" who doesn't want wires all over the place I have: Sharp 37" 1080p LCD, DVD player, Wii, Western Digital TV, DirectTV -- so I need 3 hdmi plus my wii to be plugged into my receiver. I don't plan on getting a Blu-Ray anytime soon, and if I did, I would get a PS3 and ditch the Wii. I hookup my macbook sometimes too, but I can always plug that in directly to the TV, so I'm not too worried about it. Receiver: Looking to get either the Denon AVR1910 ($465) or the 1610 ($320). I found some open box deals. Do I really need the 1910? I'm never going to go 7.1 so I'm thinking the 1610 might work out just fine. Are there any serious deficiencies with the 1610? Any suggestions here? I'm open to any brand but I've never really been a fan of Sony. Sub: HSU has STF1 on sale for $259. Thought that would be good. Thoughts? I can't really shake my neighbors up, so I'm opting for the baby model. Speakers: Here's where I have serious issues. Too many options! I have listened to a couple different brands and I liked: 1) Deftech Promonitor 1000 + Procenter 1000 (listened at BB, it will run me $660) -- sounded just fine to me, but I liked the size of the 2 fronts, since I can't fit stands due to the room and furniture. 2) Paradigm Atom Monitors + Cinema CC (Not a matching set, I know, but the store didn't have the monitor series center. The set I heard would be $450) -- sounded good also, but those atoms are a little bulky for my furniture. I could live with it, but if I can find something smaller I would be happy. I was thinking maybe NHT (absolute zero + center, $497) OR PSB alpha B1 +C1 ($460). I hate to run to BB and buy the most expensive option without asking opinions. I must say that the size/shape of those were the easiest to throw into the furniture setup I currently have. I just don't want to buy really large speakers! I'm going to hear the PSBs hopefully today, but the NHTs will have to be bought blind, thank god for 30 day trials. Any other suggestions? I scoured the forums as best I could...now I need some help.
