First of all a big hi to everyone!!!! Since i finally finshed college i finally got some money to spend. I been doin a lot of readin on alot of forums for a good setup that will statisfy my wishes. I got a couple days off pretty soon so then i can go listen to different setups. So this thread is basically for reccomendations for some good setups. well my wishes: AUDIO!!! This is the biggest factor i wanna have a great stereo sound for my taste in music.(mostly new metal, soad,drowningpool,disturbed, rammstein etc.) So i want a setup that does good with this style of music. Where the new metal fans at? give me some advice you guys My second wish is to have nice ht capabillities. I like to watch dvd's like 2 times a week or so. 5.1 will do no room nor budget for a 7.1. speakerwise im gonna start out with 2 fronts coz i dont have the budget right now for a full surround setup, but i will slowly upgrade to a full surround setup. Same goes for dvd and cdplayer, i will add those laters to the setup since i already have both of them. I got a dvd and cdplayer, not that good but they'll do for now. Budget i got between $2000 and $2500 to spend on the reciever or amps. speakers. bout $500 per speaker. I got my eye on a rotel or nad set, coz of their no nonsense filosofy. I dont need 50 dsp modes and you know what. The looks are great. And i read lotsa good reviews. Other recommendations are always welcome for speakers i was thinkin bout a set off b&w 603 s3 or 604 s3. any other reccomendations? Now should i get with an all in one reciever, or should i be looking for a preamp-poweramp setup? Just let me hear some of your views the more the merrier. sorry for the long post, i hope it won be to hard to read through.
