Thanks for the suggestions all.
I am not an audiophile, so have mostly only heard of the big names (Polk, Yamaha, Harmon Kardon, JBL, Pioneer, Sony, etc...)
Is Definitive Technology a well known/respected brand? I don't recall any experience with them.
I have been noodling this setup as well:
Receiver (I have a thousand ways to play Netflix/Hulu/etc, so unless I'm missing something, I don't really care if the reciever is networked I suppose).
Center - Polk Audio CSI A4
Front - Polk Audio RTI A3
Surrounds - Polk Audio FXI A4
Sub - Polk Audio PSW125
Total = $1550
One question I have is the "matching" of speakers. One review on the Polk FXI A6 (http://www.amazon.co...&keywords=fxia6) said...
"My only suggestion for any of you looking a purchasing these is to stick with like type speakers. Speaker lines are designed to match each other and if placing a Polk Monitor with Polk RTI you will not get a nice blend. This holds true for any brand you go with."
First thing is I'm not sure what he means by "monitor"...center channel? Second, how would this apply to the polk speakers I listed. I'm not sure if they are part of the same line since they are labeled CSI, FXI, RTI, etc. Any input on that would be appreciated.
Thanks for the help.
