    Re: Help Noob

    Denon is good as well, but pricey. You really have to be more specific, because it seems like you need HDMI inputs/outputs on the reciever for your blu ray and to also go to the tv.

    in that case, onkyo wont work. might look into the denon avr 2807.

    but you need to give a budget here cuz recievers can go as high as 2-3k.

    Re: Help Noob

    for speakers, go with monitor, you cant lose. i rock niles because they are in wall, but they sound **** good, sound better than some high end towers i have heard.
    recievers: denon, pioneer elite, yamaha has some cool ****, but i'm still a denon guy
    woofer: velodyne, end of story

    HK sounds good but they dont have the power that denon/yamaha/pioneer generally speaking. if you were on a budget i would go with a yamaha. you can find good deals on them sometimes. they offer lots of flexability, power, and features. its really tough building a monster HT system on 900 bones. for a woofer you are going to have to look elsewhere. the velodynes i would consider fall into the 700 on up range.

    Re: Help Noob

    Yamaha RX-V Series is the way to go IMO.

    I couldn't imagine building a system for 900 now that my tastes have turned a bit expensive. But, if you do some looking around and listening you might luck out. Also, look in local shops for display models they might be willing to sell and/or trade in stuff.

    Also, you really don't need to do 7.1. If you want to do it go for it, but there is definatly no reason to....
