    Hi All,
    I am planning to buy a new home theater system.My budget is around $1500 .After doing some research I am looking at buying Yamaha RX- V1400 receiver for around $600 or so and
    Polk 6700 Speakers with PSW404 Sub for around $800 .
    Can you please suggest if this is a good combination or is there any better combination. I might be able to go a little bit on my budget. Please advice.
    My living room sixe is L 20* W17 * H 15 feet.
    Thank you
    Khadar

    1) Don't buy those Polk sets. Polks are great, but you should buy them speaker by speaker, you will get better results

    2) Don't buy Polk subwoofers. You can do MUCH better for the money.

    3) Yamaha is a good way to go by way of receivers.

    Well, my budget was about the same as yours, and this is what I have:

    Polk RTi6 Mains
    Polk CSI30 Center (The CSi3 would be better, but not much)
    Polk R15 Rears (The FX series would be better here)
    Velodyne CHT-12 Sub
    Onkyo TX-SR501 Receiver (but I needed this for component switching)

    That was ~$1200-$1300, but I got alot of sales 'n stuff too. You may be able to get some of the stuff cheaper now, I don't know.

    I hope this helps...
