Ok, my son completely destroyed the mid speaker in my pioneer system. Luckily this system is almost 3 years old, so I've gotten my money's worth out of it.
Here goes. I'm getting probably 5k back in taxes from the feds (woot!) so I decided to get a new TV (probably 65") for 2500 at the most. That means I have around 2k to spend on a new theater system.
So far I have these picked out...
Mid - CSi5
And I know I want these
And the sub - PSW10
That's pretty much as far as I've gotten. I need to order the towers soon, before they go off of sale, or I'll never be able to afford them...
But here's my questions! (sorry to be such a hassle)
1: Are those towers designed to REPLACE the normal front (or back) surround speakers if I get 2 sets? Or merely complement them? (I REALLY want to get away from wall-mounting speakers since finding studs seems to be more than I can handle)
2: Can anyone recommend speakers (I want 5.1 to start out with) that will match the Cherry finish of the sub and mid?
3: I also need a good AV receiver/amp that has at least 2 HDMI 1.3 and that can handle this system.
4: I live in an appartment, but will be moving out into something bigger soon hopefully. Is the CSi5 worth it, or would the CSi3 still be worth the $199 that Fry's has it for?
Remember, I can NOT spend more than 2k, so feel free to recommend replacements if the price starts to jump.
Again, sorry for bothering you guys, and thanks for any help!!
PS. In case you couldn't tell, Home Theaters are NOT my forte...
