Hi All, Need some help in buying surround speakers. Keeping my long term goal in mind - which is to build a good HT by putting in lots of $$$ - I want to go for a budget solution in building my current HT. My budget for the speakers and sub-woofer is about $400 - $600. I have a 18 X 18 living room with 2 story ceiling. Which means, my living room is open till the second floor(which will be another 18' I guess. Now if I go in for a surround effect HT, will the tall ceiling affect the listening pleasure? What are the things I need to consider keeping the 2 floors in mind? Also my thinking is, you experts can correct me, to go for a bookshelf speakers for Front L-R and Rear L-R and a decent center channel and subwoofer. What brand, models do you guys advice? The choice of bookshelves over stand alone was later I can use them in my other rooms. I don't mind mix and matching my speakers (like bookshelves with center channel, etc), as long as it does not compromise on quality. Moreover, right now, I do not have a receiver. Though, I have budgeted to buy one, it might be bought few months after I buy my speakers. Till then I am thinking of connecting the speakers directly to my NS-755V DVD Player. Is that a good idea to live with for few months? Pls. Advice. Thanks Kumar.
