    Default Need HT Speaker & AVR advice/recommendations

    This is my first post to the Polk forum……….

    I am in the early stages of converting an unfinished walkup attic into a HT / Playroom. I have been researching speakers for a while now, and I would like your comments. The room is going to be 14Wx20Lx8H. I would really like a 7.1 system with front & center speakers in the front wall of the HT, and the 4 surround speakers in the ceiling. The SW will probably be located on the floor in the front / right area.

    Here is what I have come up with so far………

    FL & FR – RC85i’s
    Center – TC265i
    SL, SR, RL & RR – RC80i’s
    SW – PSW303

    How do this In-wall/In-ceiling speakers really sound?

    How will this sound for HT movies?

    How will it sound for music?

    For reference, I currently have a HT in a 14x15x9 den. It is an RM6200 system with a Pioneer VSX-D710S AVR (100W x 5), and I would have to say that I think it sounds excellent for movies & very good for stereo music. I don’t like any of the soundfields used for music (Hall, Theater, etc.). It sounds cheap and echoee (sp?) to me.

    I would like to get something that sounds at least this good, and hopefully a little better for the new Attic HT.

    I will need a new AVR, so recommendations on that would be great. I am currently looking at the Pioneer VSX-1016TXV-K.

    I am hoping to spend ~$1,000 for the speakers & ~$500 for the AVR.

    Thanks in advance for your comments!!

    Not an expert but the Chicago Fry's store had a new HK AVR 340 for $399. Excellent price and probably the next one I'll get. Don't know anything about in-walls.
