My in-laws have moved into a new house, and the basement has a great room for setting up a home theater. They were already starting down this path when they purchased a Sony 65" XBR HDTV last year. Now it's time to really get this rolling, we're looking at doing this at the end of September with a budget of $1500 for everything, including wall-mounts/speaker stands, speaker wire, etc. Obviously the big items they need are speakers, subwoofer, receiver, and DVD player (they have one right now, but it's really crappy). They really like Onkyo, so I was looking there for the receiver, but I don't want to limit the choices. I'm pretty much set on getting the Panasonic RP82 for the DVD player, unless I can save money by getting the RP62 with little sacrifice. Speakers and Subwoofer I don't have a good starting point for. Obviously they'll need to be on the cheaper side, I am looking to get a decent 5.1 setup with the possibility of adding the rear center channel later on. Here's a rough picture of the room, let me know what you think, go crazy. - - - - - - - - - - - - Jeff Hunt http://www.jeffhunt.org I need a job! Anybody hiring? Anyone need web design?
