    Hello,

    I am very new to the forum, and am counting on everyones expertise. I am in the process of designing my multi- purpose home theater. It will be located in my finished lower level but will not be a dedicated theater room. The room is very open to the billiard area and wet bar.

    I am stuck on a speaker choice

    I have been "directed" to the Nautilus 804's ($3200) With a Center HTM2. The rear speakers would be 2- 8" in ceiling speakers.

    In short, I am looking for a lower cost alternative. They will probably be used for movies (85%) and music (15%). The receiver recommended was an Integra DTR 8.4.

    Will this be enough to drive those speakers??

    I just don't know enough to make an informed decision, and the choices are overwhelming.

    I hope I have provided enough information for some help.
    (I am looking at an Integra DPS 8.3 DVD and a Sharpvision 10000 with a Firehawk screen just in case it matters.)

    Thanks so much for your help...John

    If you like B&W, try listening to the 700 series or even the 600 series. Some other nice speakers are made by Paradigm, Infinity, Definitive Technology, just to name a few of the lines out there. Just pick what sounds right for you in your price range.[​IMG]
