I'm pretty new to the world of home theater and brand new to Club Polk, so some of these questions might seem a little foolish, but I want to make sure I get the most bang for my buck so here we go.
I am trying to (slowly) piece together a decent home theater system, and based on reviews, this forum and my budget, I decided to go with the TSi line. I've been watching New Egg and have gotten some pretty great deals. So far I have a set of 500's, a CS10, and a set of 100's.
I know most of you recommend the CS20 over the 10, but since the fiance was letting me get the 500's I had to cut back somewhere (both size and budget). My eventual plan is have a 7.1 system, but due to budget constraints I'm definitely OK with running it as 5.1 for a while. I don't even have a receiver yet, as I'm waiting for the new Pioneer models to launch. Probably going to go with either the VSX-1020-K or the VSX-1120-K, if the reviews are good. I know that even trying to future proof is fighting a losing battle, but I am in love with 3D so if at catches on at a consumer level then waiting for the HDMI 1.4 will be worth it to me.
Now on the to the actual questions:
I'm still looking for a sub. What do you guys think about the PSW125 for a setup like mine? I've read some mixed reviews for it. Also, any recommendations other than that are welcome, but it does need to be available in cherry finish, per the mrs.
Next, as far as satellites go, do you think I should go with another set of 100's or step up to the 200's? I don't know if it would be better to match them or not. And how would they need to be set as far as which to use as L/R surrounds and which to use for rears?
As far as physical setup goes, I can't be very helpful. I'm going to be moving soon, byt have not found a new place yet. Use will be 60% home theater, 20% music, and 20% gaming.
Like I said, I'm new to all this so any and all suggestions are welcome.
