Hello! I recently bought an LG 47" 3D LED TV, the LW5300 to be exact. I have never owned a speaker setup for a TV before, so I want to get one to complete my in-home cinema experience. To start off, here are some important details: -Dimensions of room are: 11'(w)x17'(l)x7'8"(h). I have a couch, along with two recliners(on each side of couch) along one of the 17' walls, and the TV on the other 17' wall, thus there is around 10' between the TV and the center of the couch. Due the couch and chairs being against the back wall, a 7.1 setup doesn't really seem possible, and that is perfectly fine with me, 5.1 should still be great! -The TV is wall mounted, with a shelf/stand thing under it for devices. -I currently have a Playstation 3 hooked up to the TV, I will also NEED to hook up a PC(likely through HDMI) to the TV/receiver regularly and need surround sound for Playstation 3 games, PC games, and Blu-Ray/DVD movies. -As I mentioned earlier, I have never really owned an actual speaker setup before. IMO TV speakers sound fine, but I want the real experience. I want to hear the sound all around me and feel the bass and vibrations, like in an actual theater. That being said, I AM NOT an audiophile. I have enjoyed movies and games for years using TV speakers, so I don't think I will be super picky about audio quality(ohms, frequencies, all that). I want the best for my price, but I don't think I will need the best possible set-up. -I am hopefully looking to spend $500. This budget includes a receiver and set of 5.1 speakers. If everything for that price is junk or you can get way better for a little more, I suppose I could go up to around $700, but that is pushing it. Since I'm not an audiophile, I think $500 will be enough, but please let me know if it isn't. I realize this budget kinda sucks compared to the nice set-ups you probably all have, but thus is the life of a college student -My TV is 3D, and I play many PS3 3D games, watch 3D Blu-Rays, and will soon have a 3D-capable PC. So whatever I get it must support 3D. I don't know what it needs to support this, I've only read something about 3D Pass-through? I don't know, hoping you guys do. -I've got no brand preferences. From what I've read, Onkyo is good for HTiB at my budget. I've also been told to avoid Sony recievers, stick with Yamaha, Pioneer, Harmon Kardon. -A friends dad who sells speakers for a living told me that 8" or smaller sub-woofers were too small/lean for my room, so I don't know if I need to go 10"+ or not. Opinions? -I can't do in-wall speakers, and would prefer to have like ones that stand on a shelf/table or floor standing than ones that you mount on a wall. If you recommend otherwise, let me know. So I think that's all the information I have. Please just let me know if you need more, I'll do my best to provide it. Long post, I know, I just want to be sure I make a good purchase. Thanks for reading!
