Hello, I just bought my first house, and it has a dedicated media room, so setting this up is one of my first priorities. I have already bought the 5.0 speakers and receiver. 5.0 speakers are Paradigm Monitor 11 for front left/right CC390 for center ADP 390 for surrounds. Receiver is Onkyo NX-TR809 Room size is 17'6" by 12'2" and 10' ceiling. Sound deadening insulation in walls and floor. Music is more important than HT, but that's not to say that HT is not important. I want deep powerful bass but it also needs to be very fast and accurate. In addition to classical, I also love electronic music, mostly DnB and dubstep. Squarepusher/Venetian Squares are two of my favorites. Budget is 500 or so, but would go a few hundred more if there is really a great benefit to do so! Looking forward to learning a lot from this forum.
