    Well I've got everything decided and will be getting them while my house is being built (theater room yeeeeeeeessssss [​IMG] )

    I'll be using:

    Yamaha HTR-5890

    Axiom
    Center VP100
    Fronts M50
    Surrounds QS4
    Sides QS4
    Subwoofer EP350

    Toshiba DVD
    Toshiba 50" wide projection tv.

    Cable Box
    XBox360

    Now the question is power source, right now I have a cheaper monster power strip, I think it was around 60 or so. I see some Monster MKIIs at Ultimate, is one of these needed for what I'm running? Will this one work if so or need one larger?

    Well, you don't need it at all...


    On the bonus side of things, Maybe just plug everything in except your AVR, I don't like anything between my power amps and the AC source myself. Opinions vary, in the end as always you will have to decide.

    If you are building a dedicated HT room, you should bring in a dedicated line from the circuit breaker. Also add plenty of high quality power outlets on the wall, so you don't have to use something like monster cable power strip.

    Jongyoon Lee that is of course the best answer. [​IMG]


    Some people swear by them. I just have never been convinced about their value for HT.
