I am brand new to this forum, and new to home theater.
This is my first post.
I am probably doing all this in a backwards manner, but this is how it is.
I am putting together components for my first HT system.
After much research, I am going with Polk.....Great choice, eh?
I have always enjoyed researching and shopping for quality used equipment. I feel that you get a great deal of 'bang for the buck'. Plus the excitement of finding a real sweet deal is always fun.
I do not yet have a receiver......but I am leaning heavily toward a new Denon AVR-2310 CI. 7.1. There is a local store which does high end installations which carries Denon....and I like the idea of local service if ever need be.
I have assembled some speakers from eBay and Craig's List which I feel pretty good about.
I have a nice pair of RT-16's for the fronts.
A CS-400 center channel.
A pair of ls/fx for surrounds.
A pair of Sony (sorry) SSU 3000 for rears.
I am expressly wanting to have some opinions on this.....I will be using this 90% or more for HT. Not too much music, although you never know.
I have a good deal of PA equipment that I have used and accumulated over the years.
I have an EV 18" passive subwoofer that I could use for a sub. Perhaps overkill, but I just have it laying around and am wondering how this may sound in a HT situation. It again, is a passive sub, but I have an old Soundcraftsmen A-5000 amp to power it.....lots of power, class H design. It would be all my medium size room would ever need.
I also have a pair of JBL Eon subs....."powered 15's", that could be utalized, but my feelings are that the EV sub would be the better of these two choices.
I am just respectfully asking your Polk experts and enthusiasts your opinions on my overall situation before I get into purchasing a receiver, and starting to wire everything up.
Anything blaringly wrong with the direction I am going ?
Any suggestions ?
