Actual thread itself:
this is my first post and will NOT be my last. I have searched the forum for a few days before posting and can tell this is a great place to get help!
I am currently looking to build my first real home theater, and Need some help in the design. Below is the list of the components and sources that I have and plan to get. What I need help with is the selecting of the sound system and anything else that seems to be missing from my current equation. My questions are based on the Equipment list below, and what I am trying to figure out is what Items would you add and or replace?
The functionality of the system is pretty basic and all I am trying to do is send video to the 2 displays (Vizio 55"/Canon Projector) at their highest resolutions either simultaneously or independantly while having the audio follow. The reciever I selected I can get for right aroung $300 and my total budget is about $1,000 including the control system which I can get for just under $500. I am looking to do the audio in stages over the course of the year so if a good start for LCR+sub is great! I can add the 4 surrounds later. Sorry for such a long first post, but any feedback or questions would be great
I should add that the company I work for can get pretty much get me dicounts on anything AV related but I am still currently working on a budget for my bucks system and this can be seen by some of the current equipment choices.
