Hi all, I am on the verge of ordering a cheap surround setup. My budget basically consists of whatever overtime I work (I'm working a 12 hour shift of it right now), so, basically, probably about $500 at max. I am willing to wait a month or so and pick up the sub to go with it if needed. Expandability to add the 6th timbre-matched rear speaker for DTS-ES (for LOTR) at a later date when I have a few bucks is very important. I am probably going to pick up an Onkyo TX-SR600 receiver to use as the receiver (I wish I had the cash for the SR601 or the HK 525, but I don't. I don't even have enough cash for this setup). I have a Panny CP72 DVD player (optical digital out only). The setup will be being used for HT and anime watching (a lot of anime is Dolby Digital 2.0, that's why I mention it), and for rock/classical music listening (my fiancee listens to everything). I have done a lot of forum research. I am still undecided which setup to get. I am currently in a small house, so the living room isn't huge. I WILL get a 6th speaker within the year for DTS-ES/DD-EX (we're talking LOTR here!!). I was hoping for some input. Contenders: FLuance AV-HTB 5 speaker setup pros - forum and cnet have good things to say about them, I like the full towers and large speakers for the price, within my budget cons - unknown brand name, need to add sub JBL NSP1 or NSP1II setup pros - forum and other locations have good things to say about them, good name cons - need to add sub Onkyo SKS-HT510 setup: pros - decent comments from forum, good cnet review for the $$, comes with sub - good price!! cons - Ooglier than the NSP1 (not that I care much, I am the practical engineering-student type), not as much raves on the forum Acoustic Research HC6 setup pros - good comments from a few people, big % off original price, comes with subwoofer cons - I don't know much about them, the recent Best Buy price drop JUST put them in my price range. My leanings are towards the Fluance and the NSP1. I could get the Onkyo 5.1 setup for $180 refurb direct from onkyo, which is tempting on the wallet. I would love some comments from people who have audtioned any of these or have them - I am spending money I probably shouldn't, so I am being very careful to be happy with the purchase . Thanks ahead of time for your input!
