If you're looking for inexpensive quality,, you can't go wrong with Onkyo.
No, architectural. Wiring would be easy if done through floor as there is a good stoop space under the house. Its just a small home, split level, lower level has vaulted ceiling and open arrangement that makes speaker placement a witch. 50% of lower level is Living room, 50% is kitchen/dinning. Split lengthwise down length of vaulted ceiling by flooring carpet/vinyl. Here is a drawing rough one too.dmspen said:Just curious...why isn't your room "not 5.1 friendly"? Is it a speaker wire routing issue?
