I picked up a Pioneer VSX-D711 receiver at Costco this past weekend for $ 199.00. My next purchase will be the speakers. I'm new to home theater. Did I make a bad choice on the receiver, and does anyone have any reccomendations for speaker systems?
costco rules! ahem, back to what u're really asking...
i have the 811 (just has more inputs). here are my considerations for a 5.1 system:
#1: jbl scs150 $299 shipped free from jandr.com
#2: fluance sats/towers for $199 (plus $50 shipping) + velodyne vx-10 sub for $167 at 6ave.com
i might grab #1 because it is cheaper and it has decent reviews. #2 has good reviews also, but i've never personally heard them.
