Hello all. I am a complete newbie to the world of home theater and would appreciate some advice. I will break this post into 3 sections: receivers, thoughts on a used system I've been offered to purchase, and from reading earlier posts, my ideal system.
1. I am currently looking at purchasing either the Onkyo SR600 or Pioneer VSX-912K. I can get either for about $300 and am leaning toward the Pioneer because of the auto-setup feature. Any thoughts or recommendations?
2. A co-worker of mine has the following setup for sale:
Fronts: Polk RT600i's
Center: Polk CS145
Rears: Polk R10's
Sub: Polk PSW250
I can purchase this package for about $700. They are 2 1/2 years old.
3. After reading through many posts, this looks like my ideal system, at least for the fronts:
Fronts: Polk RTi70's
Center: Polk CSi30 or CSi40?
I don't know whether to buy the used speakers or splurge another $500 or so and go with all new speakers. Thanks in advance for any advice.
