I'm new to the home theater world and I am having a tough time deciding on which speakers to use in my home theater (12'x14') arrangement. Here's what I have so far:
CRT Projector - Sony VPH 1272Q
Receiver - Denon 3803
DVD - Sony DVP-CX985V
Video Processor - Lumagen Vision (yet to be purchased)
And now I'm looking for speakers (6.1 channel). I was looking at the following from Polk:
Front - RTi8
Center - CSi3
Sub - PSW404
Surrounds & Rear - RC65i
I posted on Home Theater Forum looking for some advice. I did get some good feed-back, but now I'm more confused than ever.
The advice I received was to use the RTi4 in place of the RC65i.
However, the confusion set in when Swans (5.2, C3, & R3), Rockets, Axiom, SVS for sub,... were also recommended.
And then I saw the review on the Acoustech 5.1 from Audiophile. And their price! With all of these options, now I'm starting to second guess the system from Polk.
I really like how the Polk system sounds, but I don't have the ability to audition the Swans, Rocket, Axiom, or Acoustech.
Is there any advice? Disregarding cost, how do these brands compare?
Was the original Polk system with the RTi4s in league with the Swans with an SVS sub?
Thanks for helping a newb!
