Hi – I’m looking to put together a home theater set up. (sorry if this is a re-hash) My room is long and narrow – I have a 46” RPTV and the sitting area is around 12’ from the TV. I’ve been researching for quite a while and have a few questions – and would love to hear some of your comments. I am looking specifically for a receiver and speakers and I’d like to keep everything under $750 if possible. But I’m fairly open to suggestion. For a receiver – I’ve been looking at the HK AVR130, but I’m worried that I might just end up paying for the name and not getting much of a receiver for the $300 they are asking. Any other suggestions on a solid receiver in the $300-$400 range? Side note worth mentioning – I’ve had so many problems with the BBs and Circuit City’s of the world that I absolutely refuse to send my business their way (just a personal thing – been screwed too many times). . . .so I’ve been looking mostly at online retailers. Speakers – I’ve heard good things about HTD and Fluance. I really like the looks (and price!) of the Fluance HTB, but I’m a little worried about the size of the fronts. HTD seems to get good reviews too, but if they aren’t exceptionally better than the Fluance, it seems like the Fluance would be the best bang for your buck. ???? Any other brands that would be worth looking into??? Also the look is very important – there's a wife involved here.. . . My other thought is to be a little more patient and really put together a nice setup piece by piece. If I want to do this. . . what are your suggestions for where/how to start? So for instance I could up my receiver budget to $500 and then pick up a really nice center channel for $250 or so. Then save up a little and pick up some nice fronts for about $500 and so on. . . . . . Would that be the best order to do that? Or should I start with the fronts instead of the center channel? Sorry for all the questions. . . .but I’ve been stewing over this for a few weeks and I think I’m starting to obsess a little. Many, many, many thanks for the help guys!!!!
