    I think some more info is needed.
    How will the system be used-gaming, movies,music, and aprx how much each.
    Room size and cunstruction, type furnishing.
    Are you looking for all Polk or other brands, and possibly something you have heard that you liked.

    Then you can prepare for a lot of different opinions/options.

    Yep. $5K without a plan gives you infinite options.

    Also, new or used? Polk Forums, Audiogon and other sites can stretch your budget to get you $10-$15K worth of gear for $5K out of pocket.

    Also, are you wanting a 5.1, 7.1, 2.0, 2.1, etc... setup? The amps and speakers for both will be radically different.

    If you're looking at mostly music, then go 2.0 or 2.1...

    Wow... sorry for the multiple posts; just keep thinking of other considerations...

    Where do you currently have money invested? Do you own lots of CDs, records, DVDs, etc...? Or are you starting from scratch? In which case, consider an all-digital setup as being more future-proof.

    Also, do you have ANY current resources that could help... for instance, a Macbook counts as a resource, since it makes a great source for a digital music collection.

    For gopi_`6...WELCOME TO CLUB POLK.. You may want to give your checkbook to a trusted friend for the next several weeks so you can take your time and investigate the endless possibilities. However, with all of the combinations out there I feel one of the best may be that from F1nut with maybe the addition of an another amplifier to feed the RTI-A9's if you went up to the A9's.

    Nobody ever wants to give me blank checks. The world is so unfair!

    Glad to see someone willing to spend a few dollars versus the "I want the best (fill in the blank) for $200 dollars". 5k is a reasonable starting point for a 5.1 HT system, which is AVR, speakers, sub, cables.

    You could do a full RTiA9 setup, Pioneer receiver, Amp, Cables, and a OPPO BDP.
