    Well, I decided to go a little further than I had planned with my setup, and I think I got an awsome deal. Here's the specs:

    Denon AVR1802 Receiver = $599
    Klipsch KSW12 = $320
    Klipsch Rb-3 Bookshelfs = $320/pair
    Klipsch Rc-3 center = $225
    Klipsch Rs-3 surrounds = $380/pair

    For a total of $1750 after tax.. I think this was a great deal, and should sound good. Amazing that a week ago I was set on the Acoustic Research HC6's and a $300 reciever. Anyways, did I get a good deal on all of this and should it blow me away?

    Also, I got this all at Tweeter on clearance.

    *edit* Amazing enough I forgot about something.. on top of the prices for all of this, I got $240 off, hence the $1750 out the door cost.

    Daniel,

    You bought all the wrong gear and should kick yourself for ever puchasing it. You will forever be unable to enjoy movies ever again. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Don't fret. You did fine and will enjoy every minute of it. The bottom line is you are happy with your purchase. At your price range there are dozens of systems that will sound good.

    The klipsch and denon will provide plenty of home theater experience. Enjoy.[​IMG]

    I'm thinking of nixing the ksw12 for an Adire Rava.

    Any opinions?

    DO IT!!!

    I really don't like those Klipsch subs. Boomy is one word that comes to mind. The rava will be much tighter and musical, but might give up some output in the ~50-80Hz region.

    DOUBLE DO IT!!!

    The KSW12 is the only weak link in an otherwise cool system for a cool price.

    Another "like Klipsch reference speakers, but not their subs" vote here.

    And, dang yes, you did well.

    John, that was one of the funniest things I've read here. [​IMG]

    Get the RAVA. It is sooooooo much better than my down-firing Infinity sub. I have Klipsch speakers as well and run them through a Maranz receiver. The RAVA can really keep up with the Klipsch fronts. Incredibly quick and detailed! TRIPLE DO IT!!!!

    Not yet, I need to wait for my big check to come in (2 weeks). I picked out an ikea entertainment center as well, and when everything is set up and delivered I will be sure to post pics.

    It should be rather pretty [​IMG]
