    Default Polk Surround??

    I have limited knowledge when it comes to speakers and could use a little help (make that a lot of help). And you guys look like you know this stuff forwards and backwards.

    I'm looking for a surround system to use with my Yamaha HTR-5860 7.1 receiver. I've read some about Polk and also demo'd a set in Circuit City (RM6800 & 6900) both sounded good.

    I have a limited budget of under $1,000 and hoping to get the most bang for my buck. Something that works well with movies and music.

    Any recommendations on which set of speakers I should go with?

    Just to understand the requirements, that is $1000 for 5 speakers and a sub correct? Do you have any speakers now that could be incorporated into a home theater (even as surrounds?)

    Edit - Also what are your feelings on purchasing used, or are you only interested in new gear? (no big deal either way, just want to understand your requirements) - Do you already have all the speaker wire and other interconnects that you need (digital cable from DVD player to AVR, etc.)?

    Welcome to the forums, Treta! "Under $1000"
    Got an extra $10 bucks and you can get this...

    Fronts L&R:
    http://www.polkaudio.com/home/produc...=4&speaker=351
    http://www.stereophile.com/loudspeakerreviews/1004polk/
    (can be had for $260/pair most everywhere)

    Center:
    http://www.polkaudio.com/home/produc...=5&speaker=353
    (can be had for $200 most everywhere)

    Side Surrounds:
    http://www.polkaudio.com/home/produc...=6&speaker=355
    (can be had for $350/pair most everywhere)

    Rear Surrounds: Same as Front Pair.

    These speakers are available at Tweeter Stores to audition in person and you can get also them pretty cheap online at www.crutchfield.com Not bad for a kickass 7.0 system.
    If you need sub advice- just ask. The most popular Subs on this forum seem to be Velodyne and SVS (not in that order)

    *EDIT*- if you have $1000 to spend then avoid the RM and Monitor Lines. The rti-series will give you the most bang for your buck.
