I have the Onkyo TX-SR702 receiver and a new 42" HDTV. The space is 15x25 (in feet). I'm looking for a 7.1 configuration of speakers, 2 of which I would like to be in-wall (surrounds L&R). I have a budget of $2-$3K.
Onkyo would sound very good with Paradigm. Check out the monitor line and the Studio line. You could probably get the monitor 7's, the cc370, adp370 surrounds with the minimonitors for rears and a nice sub. For a sub I would say either a paradigm or, I have an Hsu sub which is awesome and are fairly cheap.
Im not sure I know of any TVs that allow that kind of direct connection. It's probably for good reason though because if you found a way to do it, it would sound terrible because your TV doesnt have the necessary power.
Bonnie, You really should start your own thread and not hijack this one. It is rude!
Any ideas about in-wall speakers? The way the room is setup, there is a walk way is to the left of my sectional and a wall on the right. So I was thinking about in-wall speakers in these spots (L&R surrounds). Good/Bad idea? Other ways to go?
