I know this question spans several of the forum's on the Home Theater site, but I need to get an overall opinion about an entire system and associated costs. Up until today, I was planning to start purchasing an entire HT setup from scratch. To soften the initial $ blow, I was going to reuse some existing speakers (center, right and left) and a 10-yr old Mitsubish 35" TV that is starting to have problems. I was going to concentrate about $2000 on a good 6.1ES receiver, good surround speakers, an new DVD player and a new VCR. Well, my father-in-law threw me a curve. He has offered to sell me his entire HT setup for $2500. It includes the following: 36" Sony WEGA TV and stand 9 mo old model KV36HS20 progressive scan Sony 100W x 5 channel receiver about 1.5 years old model STR-DE845 dolby digital 5.1 JVC DVD player about 1.5 years old unknown model progressive scan Sony VCR brand new unknown model, but it cost about $200 Polk speakers (4 satellite and one center channel) about 1.5 years old model RM6600 surround sound system (RM2300 satellites, RM2600 center) Radio Shack subwoofer 200 watts Optimus Pro He has offered to sell this stuff for $2500. He thinks it all cost approx $4000 new. The room I am planning to use it in is approx 20' x 20'. Is this a good deal? Are the Polk speakers any good? Is the receiver any good? Will I be itching to upgrade immediately? any comments will be greatly appreciated.
