hello to all here,..i am new here and am happy that there seems to be so much good info and advice available here.... there are many questions i have to ask,..but i will try my best not to overload the area's of interest with to many... first off,..i am in the process of putting together a decent audio/video entertainment room for myself and grandkids. i have a modest understanding of sound and electronics,..so i am not completely inept or void of grasping the finer details... having said that,..i ask for all the help and advice that any of you have to offer without reservation... my desire is to build a simple, but very effective listening environment, quite capable of good clean powerful sound to accompany our listening and viewing pleasure via blue ray or whatever... i thought i would get a simple entry level polk speaker set(moniter 70's for front, 60's for rear's,.and a very good sub like svs or hsu), along with either a 46"led lcd 12hz monitor, or a plasma. get a blue ray player and a decent receiver to fill this system out. i am a little overwhelmed at all the receiver choices,(i will upgrade my speakers next year to aperion,axiom,.or equivalent), for now, i think the entry level polks will do.... so,..my room dimensions are....15'x15'x20' cathedral ceiling,...opening up to a larger living area,.. i like power,...so i want a strong low end, clean,.. and responsive plus tight....(maybe a power amp?)..i was thinking about the denon 1911, 1912, onkyo 609, HK 2600,(altho, i would love to get a marantz),..anyway,..i have about 500 at the most for now for a receiver,.. eventually i will probably use 2 subs,...so.....considering what i have detailed,..what changes or advise would you guys recommend, and btw,..i love to rock out, so music is a serious issue with me,....ty,..doug. let me define better my qwesions.... 1- what receiver will work best with these polks and a blueray/bigscreen?.... 2-what should i get,..a plasma or led/lcd?..... 3what blueray player is best?... and also,..my PC has the HT OMEGA 7.1 strker sound card,..and i want to stream pandora thru this system...
