Hi guys! I have a quick question for you all:
I currently have a nice HT setup in my living room with 2 x Monitor 70's for the front, a CS2, and then two Monitor 60's for the rears hooked up to an Onkyo SR-TX706. The receiver is at the back of the room, and on the other side of the wall it is up against is the master bedroom. I have a 50 inch LG 50PK550 mounted on the wall. The bedroom is about 12x10 feet and has a king bed in it, so there's not much room. Below the TV is a dresser that is quite wide (about 5-6 feet) with the TV centered above it. This tv is hooked up through the wall to receiver which I control with a Logitech Harmony 900.
I'm planning on adding some speakers to the room, but for the post part, they'll need to fit on the top of my dresser I believe. The reason is that the door opens inwards into the room, and when completed opened, is only about 5 - 7 inches away from the dresser. My idea was to just buy two M30's or something, but then I got to thinking about a center speaker as well. What do you guys think? My Onkyo receiver has two zones to it, so I should be able to switch pretty seamlessly. As you can guess, I never use both zones at the same time (if I'm in the bedroom, nothing is running in the living room).
I'm thinking just a simple setup, a CS2 and 2 x M30's all sitting on the dresser. They'll almost be side by side, so is it a waste to get M30's? And am I understanding zones correctly? Can I still use the video feed and just switch where the audio is being sent to (zone 1 or zone 2)?
Edit: Forgot to mention the use of the TV. Its a 50/50 mix between games and movies/tv. Mostly I watch movies in the living room where the projector is, but on occasion I'll watch it in bed. So mostly its 50/50 games and tv.
