onkyo ht-s9100thx (room size)

I am very interested in this onkyo system after reading all the reviews. But one concern for me is the room size. My living room is 25 ft x 12.5 ft, but the area for home entertainment is 10 ft x 12.5 ft. I don't know if this room size would be enough to fit this bulky home theater system.

I would greatly appreciate your sugggestions!!! Thanks a lot.

A 7.1 system is likely too large for that space.

In reply to: onkyo ht-s9100thx (room size)

Because the speakers need to be evenly distributed around you in a circle. In a room that size, the couch often ends up against a wall with the TV on the opposite wall (not sure how the 25 foot depth plays into this). Look here for advice on speaker placement and setup:

If your couch does have to be against a wall, then you might consider a 5.1 Onkyo system because the rear speakers need some space to really work.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions, I was wondering how this

In reply to: Hmmm.

a/v receiver compare to Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K and Denon AVR-1910 (black). Also do you think 7.1/7.2 receiver should pair good with 5.1 speakers? Thanks a lot.

sure. because the 5.1

In reply to: Thanks a lot for the suggestions, I was wondering how this

is only 50 dollars cheaper and this gives you the opportunity to expand to a 7.1 system should you ever want to. The 607 is a solid beginning A/V receiver. Its one of Onkyo's best sellers.

7.1 receivers drive 5.1 and 2.1 systems just fine. They are aware of which channels have speakers on them and they decode the signal accordingly.
