Thanks in advance for all your advice. I have $2000.00 in the budget to start replacing my HT that got a little wet. So far I've decided on TX-SR703 reciever,a pair of RTi-8's and either a Velodyne DPS-10 or SVS PB10-NSD. It's going in a 20 x 20 room with a cathedral ceiling that opens on one side to a 16 x 18 dining/foyer area with 9' ceiling. I'm not expecting to rock the house with this, but I need something better than the $40. boom box I'm using now. As money allows I'll upgrade. I can't audition the SVS sub locally so I'm looking for opinions on which sub to get.
