I've got an installer working on my dedicated home theatre set up. From his original list of products I've done some of my own research to try and shave a few bucks here and there and basically get max value for money.
His choices for the Blu-ray player and AVR are:
1. Blu-ray player = Onkyo BD-SP809 @ $875.64
2. AVR = Integra dtr 70.4 @ $3,285.71
My alternatives based on research are:
1. Blu-ray player = Sony BDPS5100 @ $199 OR stick to my PS3!
2. AVR = Sony STRDN1040 @ $1,187.84
My alternatives are highly rated. Why the huge price difference? He insists that his recommendations are top choices in the custom install market. Please show me the light.
Btw my speakers are Jamo and projector the panasonic PT-AE8000E in case that makes a difference.
