Thanks to a little summer work at Circuit City, I get a 60-70% discount on all Polk Speakers, including the LSi series. Unfortunately, powering the LSi series is NOT within my budget. (Those separates by HK cost $230 each and the PA4000 costs $400) After reading as much as possible from hundreds of websites about various different brands, I've come to the conclusion of getting:
Receiver - Harman Kardon AVR-525 (half off as well on it)
Center - CSi40
Mains - RTi70
Surrounds - FXi50
Subwoofer - PSW650
The system falls right in my budge of around $1300, and was hoping to get suggestions for changes or comments and experiences with these speakers. I can also get JVC, and Onkyo for a discount so I can change the receiver for either brands. I'm also a bit conlicted with going with the RTi70s instead of the RTi150s, but from previous forum threads I read the RTi70 sounded better. Any comments and suggestions are welcomed. Thank you.
