N00B needs help with speaker choices...
I am new to this site and welcome your expert opinions...
I am 29 and have been an avid gamer since I was 3 or so.
I love watching movies and love music as well
So, I guess it was inevitable that I would one day endeavor to set myself up a decent system; one that is capable of doing all 3 rather well (i.e. games, movies, music).
I am aware that to truly do ALL well I would need to spend 10k+ ..lol
Alas... my budget is much less I fear.
I have already purchased the T.V., A/V receiver, and cables..
I am now trying to choose a surround sound setup (Sub, and 5.1 worth of speakers - eventually will add 2 more when I move from my apt. into my 1st home)
*** Here is what I have:
TV = Samsung LN - T4665F
Receiver = Onkyo TX-SR605 in black to match TV
DVD Player = Oppo 981HD 1080p upconverter
Game Systems = PS3(blu-ray), Xbox360 and Wii
* I only have about $500 - $700 left for a sound setup TOPS! (if something better was a little more $, I guess I could squeez it)
I am a real n00b when it comes to most of this, especially speakers
*** Here are some I was considering:
1.) POLK RM20 on sale for $550
2.) Harman Kardon HKTs - 18 on sale for only $375
3.) ONKYO Sks - TT540 on sale for only $350
- I know these are not great 5.1 setups, but are they good for the $$$?
- also, please let me know if better can be had for around $500 - $700
P.S. I mostly Game and watch movies with music a distant 3rd
Anything we can think of is possible. If our minds can not conceive it... it is impossible, and if our minds can conceive it, we need only first invent the method to acheive it - me
