I am finishing my basement with a semi-dedicated HT room(19 x 12, walls on 3 sides and 2 half-walls on one of the 19 ft wall, about 8ft high ceilings, TV/Projector on the 12ft wall and the half-walls open into an open area)
I purchased the following at Newegg last night for what I thought was an amazing price and am pretty excited:
2 RTi A7s
1 CSi A6
2 inwall RC85i
The 2 in walls will be surrounds in the back due to space issues.
I also bought an Onkyo receiver SR-608 a week back, but I am not quite sure if this receiver will give me a good experience with the setup above. I also have a Denon AVR-890 upstairs that I can move down to the basement if needed.
Can the audio geniuses help me guide a little bit here? :) The Onkyo SR-608 is not opened yet and I think I can send it back to Newegg if it's not the right choice.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
