Hi!
Am in the process of buying a home theatre system and utterly confused. Just want to give some details before I ask you for guidance on questions that are on my mind. Would highly appreciate your feedback and apologies for the long list.
My room is 21 Ft long 15.5 feet wide and about 9 feet high. One thing good my sofa is right in the center i.e 10.5 feet from the point where the system will be placed. The rough volume is about 3,000 Cubic Feet or about 85 Cubic meters..
80% of the time I listen to music the kind which one hears in pubs and lounges where there is a lot of thump. About 15% Movies and TV and 5% old Rock like Pink Floyd etc.

The choices that I have to make where I need you advice are :
  • AV Receiver:
Maranz 6013 or an equivalent Yamaha receiver.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Sub woofer:
Two PB 1000 or a single PB 2000.(Ported)
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Speaker sets either from SVS// Definitive// or Klipsch.

  • Speakers:

  • SVS Speakers.
SVS: Front 2 SVS Prime Bookshelf 6.5
SVS Prime -Centre
Surround 2 SVS Prime –Satellite.

Wondering whether I should go for ULTRA Book Shelf or stick with PRIME. The price difference is huge.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Definitive Speakers.
Front 2 Definitive Technology D11
Centre DEF CS 9040
Surround 2 Procinema 1000 Satellite.


xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Klipsch
2) Klipsch RP-600M Bookshelf Speaker
Klipsch RP-500C Center Speaker
2) Klipsch RP-400M Satellite Speaker.


Sorry asking so many questions. Thank you.

Marantz 6013 is a good selection. Since you are planning to listen 80% music, I suggest 7013. It has got more power and got separate settings for two channel stereo - you can select crossover, levels, Sub ON/OFF, etc. So when you switchover between music and movies you don't have to change settings.

Considering your room size, I recommend new SVS PB3000. Or you can consider Dual PB2000. I feel PB1000 won't be good enough.

For speakers, since you are planning to listen to music, I recommend SVS Prime towers as fronts, its a 3.5 system and is very good for music.
I suggest Prime bookshelf for surrounds instead of satellites.

Next to SVS I recommend Klipsch. Audition both SVS and Klipsch with your favourite movie/music discs and choose the one you like more.

You may consider Denon x 3300 as well when you don't want to go more than 3.2..

Dual subs (identical) are better.. So pick the one which you can accommodate in your budget.. When you have dual subs, BS would do for mains..
