Hello all, I'm redoing my living room, and I need some advice on a new receiver and speakers. I'm just not well versed enough in HT to know what I'm looking for. First, my budget. I'm looking to stay in the $3,000.00 range. For this, I need a new receiver, and a full compliment of speakers for 5.1 (fronts, rears, center and sub). The room is about 400 sq. feet, but has a 16 foot ceiling. I am installing new wood floors. It's rectangular in shape, but one side is open to my kitchen, and the opposite side is brick, so runing wire through the walls is not feasable. So I'm also looking for some advice on running my speaker wire for the rears under my wood floor. I will be using the system mainly for movies ant television, but it will do music duty occasionally. Basically, I have no idea where to even look to get the most bang for my buck. The guys at the AV shop can spend my 3k real quick, but I've got a feeling a better system can be built for the same amount. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and ideas.
