I'm looking for TV/DVD/Amp/Speakers and was recommended the following:
PIONEER STUFF (tv/amp/cd):
MORDAUNT SHORT STUFF (loudspeakers):
various hdmi and speaker cables etc
Would you guys recommend anything else (prefer cheaper)? The TV is a 50" model but today I read Pioneer will no longer be making TVs so not sure of their long term warranty standing.
Salesguy said Amp is something like 150W RMS per channel which I find completely hard to beleive (and in a previous post of mine, someone mentioned this isn't producing 150W to all channels at the same time, or something to that effect), it certainly didn't seem much heavier than my 70W RMS per channel stereo amp.
There's a button on the amp marked "Direct". Sales guy said this bypasses the bass/treble controls and goes directly to the speakers. While that is believable, it actually made the sound more bassy (in a good way) so I thoguht that might be a "Loudness" button. Was the salesguy right?
In your recommendations, the units have to be nice looking, and the loudspeakers should preferably be available in oak. I want the front speakers to be tallish and slim but I wouldn't mind larger speakers if that gives me extra oomph.
I dont mind just going for 2 or 3 front speakers, so if you know of any good stereo amps, maybe tell me about that too.
Budget? Cheaper than the list above. That came to £6500. I think £3k-£5k (but dont worry too much about that, US prices are always different to UK prices).
I guess a 5 speaker system is what I'm after or a 5+1 bass box system. I'm guessing if the two front main speakers are good enough (like on a normal stereo hifi system) then I wont need a bass box?
