I am planning on building a home theatre system and I have budgeted approx $8000 for all things included (display, speakers, reciever|preamp,amps, cables, etc). Up until now I've never owned anything more than a 29" Sony Trinitron, my XBOX for DVD playing, and a new set of Logitech Z-5500 5.1 surround speakers. I realize that's a real starter's setup, and I'm looking to kick it up several notches. I am confused about where to start but here are my essentials requirements: - I would like this to be 90% for Movies and 10% Music. - The room I have available for this is about 14' 8" by 11' 5", with ceilings that are roughly 8' and a few inches high. - Because its a coop apartment, I believe I'm required to have roughly 75% of the floor covered by rugs, but I could a little less, but not much more because I like my wood floors. - I already have allotted roughly $2k of that $8k to a Sony KD-XBR34960 flat screen CRT. Now I am not sure about getting a receiver or getting seperates. I have heard a lot of good stuff about the Rotel 1066, which drives 100W to 7 channels continuously. Is that enough for the size of room I am using? I was unable to determine if the 1066 had either DVI or HDMI video input, which seemed odd to be lacking. The other quality receiver I read about was a NAD, but I forget which one. I guess I am not only looking for suggestions on what models to consider, but also what power I need for a room that big, keeping in mind that I have to consider neighbor's. The building is brick and has concrete walls, so its very solid and private, but still I can't go crazy. I would be willing to add material in certain areas of the room to help isolate the sound to that room, provided my wife approves of the way it looks. Other questions I have are do I need 7.1 support, or is 5.1 enough? Will a room this size benefit from 7.1 at least from a future proofing perspective? I'd be greatful for any and all suggestions and information. I realize this post is somewhat multi topic, but I figured I'd post it in here.
