I am looking mainly at 2 systems right now. My main issue is that I want my music to sound good (loud), with home theater (movies) the second priority. I cannot run wires to the rear speakers, so I need to get wireless surround sound. And so, the Pioneer HTP-4600 looked like a good deal for $500. But, the sub kind of sucks and so I would want to replace it with a different powered subwoofer, and so I'm guessing the whole thing would run me about $750ish. So that's option #1. Option #2 would be the JBL System. That is, Pioneer VSX515 Receiver - $176 JBL Northridge E250P Subwoofer - $229 JBL Northridge E90 Stereo Speakers - $206 JBL Northridge EC25 Center Speaker - $125 Total: $735, but it lacks wireless rear speakers, and so I am assuming that I could pick them up later for about $200. I am guessing that they will still work with my system, though -- is that correct? So, anyway, I want to be able to put out a lot of continious sound. My living room is 2 stories and the kitchen and stuff is right next to it, so there's a lot of area for sound to travel. Will the Pioneer system be close to as loud as the JBL system? I am assuming both are reasonably clear sound (for the money). Is this the case as well? Would there be a better solution, for the money? Thanks..
