This is my first post here so don't hurt me. . . I know this post is perhaps a bit long winded, but I wanted to provide complete information so that you guys and gals could make useful recommendations. If you suggest any changes please tell me why, this is a quest for knowledge as much as for a sound system. I have been researching the topic of getting a new home theater/general sound system for quite some time and think I have come up with a good system. Knowing my own relative lack of knowledge in this subject however I decided that it would be best to run it by some more knowledgeable folks first. So here it is. . 4 Paradigm Titan speakers - For use as the fronts and surrounds. 1 Paradigm CC-170 center - To match with the Titans well 1 Sony SA-WM40 - Because it seemed like a very cost effective sub 1 Onkyo TX-DS595 Receiver - Because it had all the features I need now, and all the features I can see needing for the next 10 years. The final price I can get this all for seems to be right around $1100, so I guess you could call that my price point, I would like to stay within $100 either way if I could. The system is going to be used for most everything. It is going to be a HT system when I watch movies or TV. It is going to be a good stereo system for when I listen to music. And it is going to be used to provide audio for my computer, including surround sound for games, and good audio capabilities for winamp and such. Currently the system is going to be housed in a farily small room, something along the lines of 12x14 however as I plan to have it around for a while the room size is going to be subject to change. My questions are this, Onkyo TX-DS595 or Denon AVS-2801? I am going with the onkyo at the moment because it seems to fit my needs better, it is rated 75 watts, and my speakers ask for either 60 watts or 80 watts for the center. Keep in mind that I do not plan on upgrading this system in any major way (such as getting new speakers). However That might change if I had the full channel pre-outs that the Denon has. But it is doubtful. I do intend to make use of Pro-Logic II, quite extensive use probably, so that is a consideration. And I am aware that the denon is going to be a slightly cleaner amp (looking at THD specs, 0.08% and 0.05%) And will better be able to provide any power that my speakers would desire because I would not be right up against the max output of the amp in terms of wattage. However the difference, especialy considering my input sources will probably not be noticable. So let me know what you think, my key concerns are that I want this system to sound good, be able to play firly loud, and last a long time without comming to feel like it is lacking. I know that output from a mid lvl computer sound card (Philips Acoustic Edge) is far from the cleanest source, and might just bring many of you purists to tears, but that is only one of the uses for this system, even if it is going to be the main one for a few years. Thanks for reading through that all and please do make some suggestions.
