Last year I realized I was missing out on a lot of the Home Theater experience due a very budget speaker set up, so I endeavored to upgrade. Living in NYC where square footage is at a premium and my neighbors are exceptionally pesky about bass, I went with 2 TSi100's as my front left/right and a CS10 as my center channel to compliment a VSX-1022k that connects to a PS3, Xbox360 and HTPC. All of these connect to my microserver that houses blu-ray rips of movies so I can stream in high quality. Last week I finally figured set about configuring the HTPC to bitstream to the receiver and set up some very old Sony flatpanel speakers as my rear surrounds. It was astonishing how much better things sounded with DTS/AC3, and I can imagine DTS-HD/Dolby TrueHD sound even better on the right hardware.
Long story short, I decided I needed better speakers and after doing some research settled on the RTiA5's, which are arriving today. While I am no novice with technology, I have very little experience with audio and was hoping for some advice on how to tweak the system to get the best sound. The A5's are going in the front, with the TSi's going in the back. I have tried to do some research on bi-wiring and bi-amping but am still unclear as to the benefits, especially when you consider my receiver can only support bi-wiring. I would love some feedback / advice from you guys, thanks a lot for the help.
