Hi everyone, So I am relatively young, just out of college with a real job, and decided I wanted to invest in a new home audio system. I have been slowly reading and learning, but all of the options seem to confuse the heck out of me. I don't have a specific budget although I would like to try to keep around $1000 for now, have a decent system that I can upgrade later on. Now if there is a reason why I should spend more I am willing to (I would prefer to spend more now and keep the system for 5-10 years than replace every 3 years etc.). Right now I already have a 55" LG LW5600 and a Panasonic 3-D blue-ray player (can't remember the name). So far everything is HDMI 1.4 compatible so I don't need to worry about component/composite or anything like that. If i were to do this on my own right now I was thinking I would get something like this: Yamaha RX-A720 receiver ~$650 - I like the 4K and 3D compatibility, as well as pre-outs, which if i understand correctly means I could theoretically get a multichannel amp and upgrade my speakers at a later date. Energy Classic 5.1 ~400 - seen good reviews and to be honest it was easy as I wouldn't have to buy separately. I figure the first thing to go is the sub, which I would also like help on. Otherwise, spending a lot more money, but probably having a much better system is through emotiva, which have amazing reviews and getting their upa-500 amp for a 5.1 system, however then I would need a pre-amp/processor and their UMC-1 is on sale for $500, doesn't have 3-D compatibility or 4K, and is HDMI 1.3. I have very limited knowledge on pre-amps and others that I have seen online seem to go for over $1000. Again I would also need speakers to go with the system and I really can't spend $2000. Anyways any help would be great.
