I have never bought, set up, or played around with a home theater system so I need some recommendations and tips on what to do. Based on reading reviews on amazon/newegg and reading other posts on this website I have narrowed my speaker/receiver combos to the following (in order). Speakers: 1. Energy 5.1 Take Classic http://www.amazon.com/Energy-Classic-Theater-System-Black/dp/B001202C44/ref=sr_1_3?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1297201809&sr=1-3 2. Polk RM705 http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-RM705-Theater-System/dp/B000WGJX5A/ref=sr_1_7?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1297201809&sr=1-7 3. Polk RM6750 http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-Channel-Theater-Speaker/dp/B0002WTK4S/ref=sr_1_1?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1297201886&sr=1-1 Receivers: 1. Pioneer VSX-020-K http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-VSX-1020-K-Home-Theater-Receiver/dp/B0039XQQX0/ref=sr_1_1?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1297201923&sr=1-1 2. Onkyo TX-SR608 http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-TX-SR608-7-2-Channel-Theater-Receiver/dp/B003BIFOL8/ref=sr_1_2?s=aht&ie=UTF8&qid=1297201923&sr=1-2 What are your guys opinions on the above picks? I have a 42 inch Vizio 1080p TV. My room dimensions are 15ftx30ft, and about 12 feet from TV to the couch. I have a blu-ray player and HD cable box (both HDMI). Also, what else should I consider buying with my new HT system? I have never hooked one up, but from what I read you need to buy speaker wire. Is this 16 gauge speaker wire sufficient http://www.amazon.com/RCA-AH16100SN-16-Gauge-Speaker-Wire/dp/B0029HHIDY/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1D9KBYSNKKPME&colid=1POV2N44A6BAX ? Do you recommend just plugging the bare wire into the back of the receiver? Should I buy banana plugs? How should I hide the wire? Should I just run it along the wall or is it better to run it right under the carpet? How do you guys recommend I put the speakers, on the floor, on stands, on wall mounts? Right now my top pick are these wall mounts to mount the 2 satellites and 2 rears http://www.amazon.com/Vantage-Point-Universal-Satellite-Speaker/dp/B0000634T6/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I2L0W23AMRXVKF&colid=1POV2N44A6BAX .
