My parents have a large 20' x 20' living room and are looking to upgrade to a 'home theatre' sound setup to complement their big screen tv + dvd player. My dad's done some shopping around and asked me to check out various models of receivers and speakers -- here's what he's interested in so far. Yamaha RXV800 -- I think I'm gonna suggest he spring a bit more for the 1200. Not sure if this is replacing the 800 in the model line, or if it's a pricey step up, but it has DPL2, and true 6.1 ES. My suggestion is to go with the 1200 on faith cuz I'm a huge Yamaha fan. Denon 2802 -- from what I've heard this is a great receiver. Only thing I am hesitant about is the lack of front inputs and it seems to have fewer video and digital audio inputs. Energy e:xl26 + e:xlc2 fronts and center -- He didn't really like the looks of them too much, but I gotta say that I think they look super cool. Paradigm Phantom fronts + cc270 center -- a little more understated appearance, but I haven't heard them so can offer no real opinion on them to him. I'd think that either the Energy or Paradigm setup would be more than adequate, but I wouldn't mind some input from folks who own or have auditioned these speakers. Rears -- if he went with either Energy or Paradigm, what set of rears would match properly? I assume the shop he buys them at would steer him in the right direction, but I'd like to see what you guys would suggest. So what do you guys say? He's looking at spending ~$2300 CDN and could use some help spending it. Thanks in advance!
