I am currently building my home theater setup, new from scratch, in Germany.
I am doing this from Iraq but I will return in November and I want a nice system for around $2000 (what wifey said I could spend)
I have had previous home theater systems:
Harmon/Kardon AVR325 with Infinity Reference Speakers about $5000 for the whole setup but that is in the states and outdated for Blu-Ray.
My living room is rather large with high vaulted ceilings so I definitely need floorstanding w/ bookshelf surrounds.
What I Have:
JVC 40" LCD capable of 1080P...I'm an audiophile video is not as important
PAL DVD player (for German movies)
What I am looking at:
Denon AVR1909 Receiver or HK AVR254 (The Denon is getting better reviews for what I plan to do)
Polk TSi300 Floorstanding x2
Polk TSi100 Bookshelf x2
Polk CS10 Center
Polk PSW110 Sub or Velodyne DPS10/12 (I have a Velodyne 15" for my other system and it is amazing)
Polk Atrium50 x2...for outside, obviously
I know the value of good wiring so I am going with premium Monster Cable for everything.
If you guys have any ideas that could help then feel free to let me know, also keep in mind that I can't go too big on speakers as my brother in law lives next door (it's a large duplex apartment and our living rooms are seperated by one wall).
