Hi all, I currently use HTIB in an apartment and soon will be moving to a house. I recently bought the Pioneer SC 1522K receiver from costco because it was for a good price. Now I wan to add speakers, center channel and sub, However, I am no audiophile and don't want to spend thousands of dollars to get good sound, now will I be able to hear the difference. I am attaching the layout of the room and where I think I would be placing the speakers, please recommend if something looks way off to you guys. Also, since I am getting the builder to do pre-wiring it would be helpful if you guys could tell me the best location. Now as for sub I think I will get the Klipsch RW 12D, since it gets good reviews and newegg has them on sale. The speakers, I started with Pioneer FS52 but did not like that it was not crisp or clear to me in the store. next to it were ther polk tsi300 and klipsch I forget what the model number was, but I liked how the sound came out to you and was so crisp. Then, someone suggested he Infinity 363 from fry at a good price, but no frys around here so have to go with the reviews. I also read up on the KEF and Focal Chorus. The KEF I have not had a chance to listen to yet but I have a feeling I may find them warm or neutral which is something that I think I don't like having listened to the pioneers. I listened to the focal bookshelves 806v I think yesterday, and felt the same thing, that it was really nice, but was not excited by the sound and it did not seem clear or crisp to me. I really was hoping that I would like the focals and they look great and wife also likes their looks (WAF). Accesories4 less had the 814v for $850, which way over my budget or the bookshelf version from music direct for $400 demo unit. I think the infinity 363 would be fine, but they don't look great and look cheap. I can't decide if I should buy cheap and upgrade in a couple of years of buy something nice and don't upgrade for a few years. I feel like I am already happy with the HTIB and it would be an upgrade with even the infinity 363. Can someone suggest what I should do, and steer me in the right direction. I can't upload the pic, it only give me the URL option. the room is 22X19 and opens to the kitchen with 9 foot ceiling, carpeted.
