Polk RM6750 5.1 with Sony STR-DN1080?
Recently finished my basement and replacing all my old A/V equipment - need some advice on this (planned) set-up:
- VIZIO M65-E0 ($CAD 1480 @ Costco)
- SONY STR-DN1080 ($CAD 600 @ Bestbuy)
- Polk RM6570 5.1 ($CAD 300 @ Bestbuy with discount)
Prices are Canadian dollars - I have a budget of $2000 but I think waiting for Good Friday sales, I should be able to squeeze it in.
I'm curious what you guys think of this set-up in general, but mostly the receiver / speaker combination. I'm not very knowledgeable about the audio side. We will mostly watch for movies and sports, maybe some gaming at some point. It's a small room (probably about 12 x 15) and we have young (sleeping) children, so I'm really focused on clear crisp surround sound over volume and bass. I'm wondering if I'm going overboard on the receiver relative to the speaker budget, and if I should re-allocate elsewhere.
My backups are the DENON AVR-S730H and Monoprice 10165 or Polk RM705. I want a receiver with ATMOS because I plan to complete a 5.1.2 set-up at some point with wired speakers. (When we have more money / my wife isn't paying attention.)
Thoughts? I've lurked here and read a lot of threads, but finally looking to buy and value the advice here!
