I am truly a HT newbie, read reader comments and listened to some equipment. Finally ready to order, almost. I am considering the NSP-1 system, but had a thought, would a 3 way S center help the sound? I think I will stay with the four N-24 front and rears. No sub for now. will go with the HK AVR-520. the room is fairly big 20 x 24 with carpet, 8 foot ceilings that vault to about 10 foot. The room over flows to kitchen / nook area with hardwood floors that are a bit echo-y. I wired the system in the walls and roof with out doing any research, so with out an attic visit no 6.1 or 7.1, but it seems this stuff changes so quickly that I just have to make a choice and stick with it. My budget is $1000 dollars or less with shipping, already arranged with the boss, therefore no sub, no wait she might want a sub from Santa. What do folks think about the s center upgrade or is it bad to mix two way f/r with 3 way center?
