Hi all! This is my first post on these forums and I really enjoy reading through the boards daily. About a month ago, a guy at the TeamXbox forum by the name of Sorny had a link to your forum and I decided to check it out. Thank god, cause it sparked a new interest, even perhaps a future hobby, for me. Right now I'm only 16 with an $8/hr (canadian) job, so I can't really afford much, but I have scrounged up $1500 that I am willing to use. I went to A&B Sound with my dad yesterday and they had a system set up called the Energy Take 5.2. He had it playing through a Marantz receiver, but recommended a Yamaha RXV-540 to go with my budget. I was wondering if this setup would be ideal for games, movies, and the occasional music listening while I do my HW. Later on in life, once I've established myself as a leading Real-estate owner in Calgary(I hope ), I will obviously get much better stuff, but I figure that for entry level this is descent. Any thoughts, opinions, advice, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
