I came across this forum by chance and really liked the Beginners section and the advice provided so I joined up (even though I live in Ireland).
I am currently getting to the final stages of a new build and I am deciding on the elements of my home cinema set up going forward. I have a budget of about $650 for a receiver and I presume for that I wouldnt get decent seperates? The question is should I wait and buy seperates at a later date?
I am sinking speakers into the ceiling and walls so I dont need a system with speakers. There are a couple of features that I saw on receivers recently that I really liked:
~ Two zone audio functionality
~ Audio sync control
~HDMI pass through
I would appreciate any advice you guys could provide in relation to Receiver or Seperates, and then potential best buys for each. I have read through various posts about the topic on here - but when you put a budget against it the answer may change.
