Here is what I will be purchasing in the next two months. Yamaha HT5590 receiver, JBL S38II's for the front S26's for rear. The JBL Studio Center. And a SVS subwoofer. This is a upgrade for me. Right now I own a Kenwood HTB system. It sounds ok, but now I would like to move up. The center channel is a little to bright. I love the sub I bought the system for 599.99. I think that was for the sub and receiver. Because the rest of the speakers are'nt that great. Just so you know the cost I am looking at. The receiver is going to cost 472.60. The S38II's 270.00 (pair), rears are 217.00 (pair) center is 136.00. Sub is well 600.00 ugh, they do say a good sub can make or break your system. I am sure there is beter than this stuff. But I was thinking for the price I can't go wrong. Please let me know if any of you have used a Yamaha receiver. Would a Yamaha be good enuff for the basic HT. Or is there beter for same price??? Thanks for your Time. Art.
