OK. Just moved and bought a house with a "bonus room" built over the garage. So I have a 17 X 22 room pre-wired with all kinds of stuff I know nothing about, but I have 16 guage speaker wire run to 6 locations (front, back, sides). At first, I was going to make this into an exercise room. Then, I saw a "media room" in a model home when my wife drug me out to look for decorating ideas (there's a fun afternoon). Anyway, this media room had a Sharp DLP projector, and I decided I gotta have something like that! I need to make some speaker choices becuase I am planning to recess the front speakers into the custom cabinets I will build, so I need dimensions. I am thinking Infinity IL series because they seem like relatively good speakers for a novice like me and they are being discontinued so I think I will be able to get them for good prices when I am ready for the equipment in late fall/early winter. I am thinking today IL10's or 40's for front, IL25 center, a good 10" sub, and IL10 rears. Now, I have prewiring for another set of sides? Do I want my rears on the side like the infinity manual depicts, or do I want to add another set? Seems like I need a pretty good receiver (is 7.1 the right term) to run sides as well, true? As for receiver, I am currently thinking Denon 2802 or 1803, or maybe a Yamaha 5560. Went to CC and looked at the Onkyo 600 and liked the backlit remote, but the power issue for my large room may be a factor I would think? Listened to the IL speakers and the CC didn't have them in any configuration that made it meaningful listening at all. Anything else I should be considering in an intermediate price range? My finished goal is to have a very nice looking HT with good intermediate level equipment (probably the Boxlight 12sf projector) that will be 90% HT (a lot of cartoon videos and maybe a couple of DVD's a week) that sounds clean if we rent the Diana Krall DVD and has the appropriate effect if we watch a Star Wars DVD, and can cleanly handle a David Sanborn CD. My goal is not to have the envy of the local Tweeter crowd or to spend more than my 401k is currently worth - which ain't a lot. I know I am asking a lot of questions here, but any thoughts?
