Hello all, I am about to complete my first attempt at a home theater by purchasing a reviever (Onkyo 595 or Denon 1802) and a speaker set 1) Energy Take 5.2 + the Energy S 8.2 subwoofer or 2) The Polk Audio RM6000 or 3) The Harman Kardon HKTS 5. I have listened to both recievers with the Energy and Polks... and to be honest they all sound great! I have listened to the Harman Kardons at a friends house and they sound excellent as well (Sony Dolby Digital Reciever). Price is an issue.. I figure there will be around $450-$500 left to spend on spekaers. Size does matter!! The smaller the better, as the room is 15 x 12 and according to the wife.. is a home first, not a home theater.. (Gonna have to work on that one) I will not listen to things at extreme volumes, but a little bass would be nice . Any advice you have on either the receivers or the speaker systems would be extreamly helpfull. Thanks in advance to the many experts out there!
