Looking to build a new ht from scratch. I have an idea of what I want, but would like input from people with more experience so I don’t make any stupid decisions lol
I know that the brains of my ht will probably be the Pioneer Elite 503 because I want to do a 7.2.4 and it will probably be replaced within a couple years. This is where my plans go to shit lol
As for an amp, this is what I need most help with as I’ve never owned one.
Undecided on a display. I’m down to LG B9, Sony A8G, or Sony X950G. I thought about letting the tv do the video processing and the AVR just do the audio. Bad idea? I’d really like to get something that supports some of the features of hdmi 2.1.
For speakers I really am a Klipsch fan boy. I love the look and the many options. I have the reference series front stage now that I’m upgrading from. I thought about doing the RP-160 (I’m unable to use floor standing speakers at this time) and building around that with the 440c and 250s.
I’d also consider spending most my budget on SVS Ultra’s because, Zeos… and basically every other reviewer who have played them. I’d also at least get the center to match.
Elac B6 or AirMotiv 6’s would be about the only other speakers I’d consider, although they’re both long shots. I’d have to be real tight on my budget or find an unpassable deal to not buy Klipsch or SVS.
Finally, for subs, I’m considering either dual SVS PB-2000, Klipsch 112, or building my own Ultimax 15’s.
Sorry for the long post. I don’t expect anyone to answer each individually, feel free to give advice on one or all or just let me know what you have! Also would like to hear from people who have owned one or more of these! Thanks!
