Ladies & Gentleman,
It's ben a while since I've had to build a surround system. Just sold my home and moveid into a new house. I'm not a audiophile and won't be purchasing Martin Logan or super high-end speakers/reciever. However, since I've been out of the research for speakers/equipment...I would appreciate your assistance.
I've attached the floorplan of our new home and will be installing a 70" LCD TV on the wall in the great room. The master bedroom shares the same wall as the TV will be mounted.In our past home, I installed Sonance THX certified in-walls for the front and Sonance in-ceiling to complete my 5.1. BTW, I had two Definitive Tech inwall subs.
However, now..with the master bedroom wall behind the TV...The wife doesn't want that noise/vibration/"boom-boom". I'm sure if I wanted to rip the drywall down..isolate the studs and put batting and the high price noise dampning drywall...I could do this. However, I'm looking for a better alternative.
I'm thinking a good soundbar or a LCR that mounts on the wall might be less work and would definately be less sound in th emaster bedroom. If you can agree....can you suggest a good sound bar/LCR (does not have to be one of those soundbars with amplification..(since I'm also looking for a good 7.1 receiver..I was thinking the Denon with Audessy). Something that will look good under a 70"?
I will be reusing the Sonance in-ceilings for the rest of the surronds and I have a Veladyne powered sub that I will test in the corner to see how that works.
Thanks to all,
