I'm new to this forum. I am currently reviewing HT Speakers & Receivers and welcome any advice/comments from the experts out there on the "Home Theater Forum". I am willing to spend between $3,000 - $3,500 for the combination of HT speakers and receiver. I currently have a Mitsu 60" Rear Projector and Panasonic DVD player. This system will be used 100% for Home Theater. My TV room/Game room is approx. 17x18 with 11 ft. raised cathedral ceiling. I've been considering a Denon 3802 and the M&K 750 series. I've also considered an Onkyo THX Select Receiver as well to use with the M&K's. I have also considered the following: -nOrh SM 6.9s, nOrh 4.1 Center along with SVS 20-39PC/Samsoon S700 Combo - Yamaha RX V1200 with Paradigm Speakers (Monitor 7's, CC370 Center, ADP 370B Surrounds and PDR12 Sub). - Boston Acoustics Sys 10K - Boston Acoustics PV 800, Theatro & (4) Haydens I'm not partial to any particular set up. I just want the best "bang for my buck" and can spend up to $3,500 for the speakers/receiver combo. I'm open to all recommendations. Also, any comments regarding purchasing this type of high-end equipment from on-line companies (or E-Bay companies) would also be appreciated. There are some very tempting prices on-line, but I'd be worried about factory re-builds or seconds. Any thoughts?????
