First home audio set up. Help me choose my hardware Tags: High-End Audio Hardware Audio Last response: July 5, 2012 11:07 PM in Home Audio Share Kaytech July 5, 2012 7:29:01 PM I am working on my first home audio system For my receiver: Denon AVR3312CI Subwoofer: Polk audio Psw505 Two front speakers: Polk audio Rti a9 black This is a budget system for under $3000. I want to be able to upgrade to 5.1 or 7.1 in the future. What equalizer should I get, and what do you think of the components I have chosen so far?

Music, movies or both? The receiver seems like a good one. Denon makes excellent equipment. I would recommend the EMP Tek 7.1 series and that receiver. EMP Tek 7.1 http://emptek.com/impseries71_pkg3.php or the 5.1's. http://www.emptek.com/impseries51_pkg3.php EMP Tek review http://www.trustedreviews.com/EMP-Tek-Impression-IMP-7-... You simply cannot beat the price/performance of these speakers with anything Polk makes. Denon receiver = $1200 at amazon. Emp Tek 7.1 = $1,890.00 from emptek.com / 5.1 = $1640 Total = $3090 7.1 or $2840 Slightly over-budget (7.1s) but 100000% worth it. The 5.1's you could always upgrade to 7.1 with 2 more bookshelfs when you can. Then cables and speaker wire. I would recommend Blues Jeans cables. Excellent products and a great price. http://www.bluejeanscable.com *edit* For some reason, I can't add functional links. Sorry about that. *edit 2* Apparently they fixed themselves... odd. | Report abuse Kaytech July 5, 2012 11:07:20 PM Ok I will check those out.
