    We are looking to build a HT system and looking for some advice. If you could help with the pros and cons of the speakers and receivers including purchasing site to save a little. The room is 16 x 16.
    Speakers-
    Acoustic Research HC2
    Energy Take 5.2
    Infinity HTS-20
    Polk 5400 & 6600
    Velodyne SPL-514
    Receivers-
    Outlaw 1050
    Onkyo 595 & 696
    Sony ES 333 & 555
    Denon 1802 & 2802
    Marantz 5200
    Include what recievers mate well with what speaker systems.

    I would go with the enery take 5.2 and denon 2802.
    The energy's are the only speakers I am familiar with (meaning I have spent time listening to them) in that bunch.
    Any of the receivers would be fine but I would knock the sony off the list. JMHO but I don't care for sony's low end receivers.

    Any more help or opinions? Looking to set this up in the next couple of days.
    Building the HT entertainment center right now. Need to fill it and get started with placement and sound optimization.

    I would suggest outlaw or onkyo (gave Dad an outlaw last year, recommending onkyo to a buddy who is new home owner).
    Speakers are what sounds best to you, but energy would get my particular vote (have XL16s & pr of take 5s).
