I am new to the forum so please pardon any incorrect terminology/dumb questions.
I am building a new house and want to set up a nice 5.1 channel surround sound system, including a good receiver.
I will be mostly using it for watching movies and playing ps3.
I have a few questions -
1. Which speakers ( front channel, center and rear) should I buy?
2. Which sub woofer?
3. Which receiver ( should have bluetooth, multiple HDMI ports, 3d capability, etc.)
4. How should I set it up given open floor plan. Picture below -
Based on what I have read, seems like Polk, Klipsch and Kef are pretty good in speakers and subs, and Denon and some others in receivers. I am open to buying a mix of different brands for various things or all of one brand. I know its kind of open ended but any help would be appreciated. My budget is 1500-2000 for speakers and subs, and another 500-700 for receiver. I am a little flexible with budget if you think it would make sense to go up a little higher for much better quality.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
PS - For some reason I am unable to upload the picture. Will figure it out and do it shortly.
