Hello all, I have a living room 6x4 meters and I want to build a home cinema. My budget is low and I have researched some speaker sets (5.1) that I would like your opinion of: 1) Klipsch HD Theater 300 (HDT 300) Home Theater System 2) Infinity Primus HCS 3) Infinity BETA HCS 4) JBL SCS 200.5 I am planning to purchase an amplifier Yamaha RX-V367 with HDMI 4 in/1 out but I might get a newer one that has more audio codecs support (I want to stay low on cost, maintaining the 3D ready and 5.1 support, in addition with more than 2 HDMI in.) My knowledge about audio is very limited, so be patient with me... Thank you in advance for any help/direction you can give me...

The two Infinity systems would be much better than the Klipsch or JBL ones. They should also be much more expensive. I wasn't even sure the Beta system was still available. At least it isn't here in the US. Infinity phased out the Beta series and replaced them with the Classica series a couple of years ago. As for the receiver, the 367 is a very entry level model. If you plan on adding a Bluray player then I would move up to the 467. The 367 doesn't decode the new Dolby and DTS HD audio formats found on BR discs.
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.
"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
Also have MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

Your purchase decision should be based on which of these systems sound best to your ears. I have listened to a number of Klipsch 5.1 systems and I found them to be a bit too bright at the high end to suit my ears. At first they sound impressive but after a 5 to 10 minutes of listening they became fatiguing.
