Hi to everyone, I have been hovering around this forum for about a month and just had to make a post because I couldn't find the right answers from other posts. I am planning on buying an Onkyo 701 THX receiver and have a budget of $700-800 for a 6.1 speaker and sub system. I need to fil a 12' by 25' room. My old starter system is an Onkyo 838 (remember the days of AC-3?) and a Bose Acoustimass 10 with passive sub (pre-hometheaterforum days). I have read aout the HSU ventriloquist and onkyo HTIB but have not actually heard them. Are these better than my old bose or do you have any other suggestions?
