Hi everyone, I have been reading for a while but just registered. Anyway, my wife has allowed me to splurge just a little to put together a 6.1 HT system. The problem is a limited budget and the fact that I will be getting a DVD burner with approximately $350 of my "allowance", so I only have $850 left to get a receiver and speakers. I considered an HTIB (Onkyo HTS-770 for around $425) but it seems obvious that most here feel that with a little shopping around, you can find better bargains, so I thought I would ask for some opinions. After reading quite a bit, I am leaning toward the Pioneer VSX-1014 and either Fluance, HSU, Paradigm or some combination for the speakers. My living room is 13x18 with a 7 ft. wide doorway opening into another room that is approximately 13x9 (I will be buying a new house in 6-9 months so I expect this room size to be a little larger in the future). The HT will be used about 65% of the time for movies. I would like the ability to upgrade to 7.1 later but it isn't a dealbreaker. Can anyone recommend a system that meets my needs on this budget? Recommendations for online retailers would be appreciated too. Thanks in advance.
