Some time ago I asked for some insight into speakers and AVR's here in the forum. Some of you suggested me to buy an AVR with preouts, and in my budget of around 500 USD I had the choice between yamaha and onkyo. At the end I chose the Denon AVR790. I know it has no preouts, but I chose this model for several reasons. Amongst others, video processing and Audyssey which I've read are really worth. Moreover, I know this is a very addictive hobby, but I don't see myself adding an external amp in the near future. What I want is to complete the 7.1 setup and add a second zone. This will take me some time, and money of course, so I think I should stop by then. Anyway, I might add an external amp for the zone 2, so I can create a nice stereo system don't you think?
So finally I'm happy with my new AVR and a pair of TSI300, which are very good.
Now my question is regarding the next step. I think the most obvious step will be the subwoofer, cuz I also want to buy a PS3. I think I'll be able to buy these by december. Or, do you think is better to add the center channel? I think the last thing to add will be the rears and the lateral speakers. I plan to buy a pair of TSI400 to replace my fronts and use the 300's as rears, but that will be sometime in the next year.
My budget for the subwoofer is around 300 USD, so I'm thinking in getting a PSW125. The thing is that I live in Mexico and this stuff is very expensive here. However, i live near the border with Texas so I normally go there to buy stuff. Do you know some good places where I can get a good subwoofer in the Laredo, San Antonio or McAllen area, apart from BestBuy.
Many thanks in advance
