I picked up a couple of RTi10s a few months ago, which although I've been dying to get hooked up, some unexpected expenses prevented me from buying a new receiver, etc and testing them out. Now, I'm actually glad there was a delay as I've been able to find the great resource that is this forum.
As I said, I already have a couple of RTi10s to use as fronts. From reading some of the other threads, I saw that Denon receivers are pretty popular, with a model supporting at least 130 wpc. Is this right, or are there any other recommended brands/models?
I'm also just starting to look at center and surrounds in order to put together a 5.1 system. This weekend I saw that I can get a really good deal on a couple more RTi10s. I saw at least a couple of posts that mentioned using these as surrounds. Would RTi10s all around be a good combination, or just overkill (or simply a bad idea)?
I also saw an amazing deal (closeout i guess) on an LSiC for about $100. Not sure if it was refurbed or customer return or what not. I've seen the posts about mixing the frount soundstage. The store rep even mentioned it'd be better to stick to the same model lines, but since he then enthusiastically recommended a Bose center channel, I figured it was just one of his sales tactics. So, should I jump on this LSiC deal or is it still not worth it?
If it helps at all, I'm planning on using this setup about 50/50 for movies and music.
Thanks for reading, and I look forward to reading your suggestions!
