Hey again. Looks like the wife is gonna let us spend our tax refund (whoo hoo). So hopefully I will get my Sony XBR800 36" and a Sub. Just so you know, let me run down my quick equipment list. Just recieved within the last two weeks: Anthem AVM-20 (soon to be upgraded) Aragon 2007 nOrh CD-1 Rocket Loudspeakers package #2 5 speakers(750 Towers, 200 Center, RSS300 Dipoles) (Ordering in about 4 days) Now, I still need to get 5 things done; 1) Upgrade AVM-20 2) Buy Denon 1600 DVD player 3) Buy Monster Power Center 4) Buy SVS sub(s) 5) Buy Sony TV Hopefully I can get $1300 out of my mountain bike. When that sells, I was gonna get the Monster HTPS7000 power center ($855) and the $350 upgrade to my Anthem AVM-20. We are going to buy the 36" XBR800 Sony Direct view cause a)I like it, and b) it fits perfectly in our "conceal all" wood armoure(sp?) When taxes come back, after bills and TV, hopefully I will have about $3000 left to spend. I see that $3000 going 3 ways. 1) Get one SVS Ultra $900, and Samson amp off ebay, $500 ($1400), then buy Denon 1600, $400, ($1800), then buy 6th and 7th surround speakers from Rocket, either the $700 bookshelves($2600-$2700), or 550 towers $800 ($2700-$2800) Then the rest on whatever, cables, dvd's etc. OR 2) Get 2 SVS Ultras $1800, plus amp $500 ($2300), then get Denon 1600 $400 ($2700), rest on cables. OR 3) Buy SVS B4+ $2500, $400 shipping for B4+ (worst case senario shipping as quoted by SVS today) ($2900) Amp off ebay $500-$700 ($3400-$3700) not buy Denon 1600 (probably BAD idea as I have Pioneer DV-444 right now) Senario 3 wouldn't happen unless I got a stellar refund. Which I doubt is even feasable Anyway, the room the HT is in now is very long. Technically 15ft wide x 50ft long, because the living room opens straight back trought the "so called" dining area and even kitchen. It also opens on the left wall about 25ft back to the hallway/door area. 8ft tall highth. This house is a rental, so I hate to buy equipment soley on this house seeing how we will probably move soon. I'd rather have something that CAN put out in any environment, then NOT. I am trying to decide wether the 7.1 surround and 1 sub is better than 5.1 and 2 subs. I am leaning towards the 7.1 with one sub. If I only end up getting $2000 to spend. Definately just the One SVS Ultra and the Denon 1600. Trying to decide tho if $3000 comes my way. THANX in advance for all opinions. Again, sorry for the long post. Mine are always lengthy.
