Well, my questions have already been addressed, at least (not quite answered).
I'm new to the whole HT thing and am building a system this year for Christmas (that is, people are buying me pieces or giving me money). I signed up here with the intention of asking two questions:
- Which would be a better match for the R50: CS1 or CSi3?
- Which should I buy first: center speaker or sub?
However, these have already been addressed, so thank you. I'm still posting this because I decided as long as I had signed up already....why not?
Anyway, all I have so far for the HT is two R50s in Cherry finish ($49 at Fry's...couldn't pass it up). But here is what else I am planning on getting (I will be piecing this together over time due to WAF [I remember this phrase from my electric gutiar equipment days ;)])
AVR: Yamaha RX-V659 (great review at Audioholics, killer price for the features, plus converts between component, s-video, etc.)
Mains: R50s (already have)
Center: CS1 or CSi3 (in cherry finish)
Surrounds: (don't know yet - depends on which center I get, I guess...Monitor 30s?)
Sub: Not sure...VX-10, STF-1, X-sub are all contenders at the moment.
(already have Sony DVD player & 35" Trinitron - a dinosaur, but good enough for my purposes)
Anyway, thoughts on the system? The room I have demands that the TV is in the corner, so that's an issue, but I can't change it unless I remodel the house.
