Hello everyone,
I'm new to the forum and I've spent the last couple of days reading the basics of HT info. Very useful stuff.

I am going to be moving into a new apt. and I want to get a new HT system. I have a budget of about $1000-$1500. I will probably use it for watching movies and for listening to music in equal proportions. I've looked at a couple of electronics stores, but the best deal I could find was the system I mentioned above. It includes the following:

--Yamaha 630W 6.1-channel home theater receiver,
--JBL surround system with two 3-way floor speakers with dual 6" PolyPlas woofers,
--JBL two 2-way wall-mountable bookshelf speakers with 4" PolyPlas woofers,
--JBL 1 center-channel speaker with dual 5" PolyPlas woofer cones,
--JBL 250W 10" front-firing subwoofer

The room it will be placed in is a med-large living room (18 1/2' X 15').

The total cost of the system above is $1300. I would appreciate any comments or advice anyone could offer about this setup.

Thanks in advance.

Zack

Zack, the Basics area was set up as a place where newcomers to the hobby can ask essential questions about home theater ("What is a receiver?," "What is 16:9?," etc.). It is not a place for asking about specific models of speakers, receivers, etc.

Since you're asking about a potential complete system, your post has been moved to A/V Sources, which is the best "fit" for such a question.

Good luck.

Jack - you sure about that? He's asking about a receiver and speakers, neither of which is a source!

Back to the topic, though. Do you have the model numbers for those speakers and receiver? My guess is you could do a little better price-wise, or maybe more quality for the same $. Hard to say without the model #s, though.
