  1. The exchange rate with the US continues to improve so I'm considering purchasing hifi gear overseas and having it shipped to Australia. Can anyone recommend decent overseas websites (other than Amazon) that sell hifi gear and ship to Australia?
  2. From everything that I have read online, if your couch/listening position is not in the sweet spot don't bother with surround. Go for a decent 2.0, 2.1 or 3.1 setup instead.
  3. I've read in quite a few places that the sides/rear speakers in a surround setup don't need to be from the same series as your front sound stage. Often people go for cheaper satellites than their front soundstage speakers. Is that the consensus on this forum? And if so, what satellites can you recommend?
  4. From what I understand having started in the same place you have (wanting a new receiver under $1K and looking at the Denon X1600H) start with working out how many speakers you will be starting with - 2.0, 3.1, 5.1 etc. Until you start getting beyond requiring 5.1, your $1000 is going to go a lot further on an older second hand receiver. You will lose a few sound modes and may not get the hdmi functionality that modern AVRs have, but you will get a lot more amplification for each channel.
  5. Hi everyone, I'm looking to learn through these forums and eventually setup a starter home theatre for my house. I'm planning on a 3.1 system with the potential to upgrade to 5.1 and eventually atmos. At this stage I'm really keen to learn about different bookshelf speakers at reasonable prices here in Oz. Cheers!
