Hey all 

 

Were building a new house and I need your pro opinion on which products to achieve a 5.2 home theatre system in my living room. The living room is large and open plan on one side. I can import a Pioneer VSX-830-K AV from Australia for around 600 landed. I am on a budget so want to know which brand of speakers would you recommend. I wanted all speakers to be wall mounted or ceiling mounted (only on tv side of the wall). I was looking at Polk speakers as it has great reviews on amazon but wanted to know opinion whether Klipsch would be better option or something else.

Polk Speakers from amazon:

 

Polk Audio RC80i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers - at the back (L and R)

 

Polk Audio RC85i 2-Way In-Wall Speakers x2 - at the front (L and R)

 

 

 

Polk Audio 255C-RT In-wall / In-ceiling center channel speaker (front center)

 

again I would get subwoofer later on

 

 

 

or 

 

 

Polk Audio RC60i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers - at the back (L and R)

 

Polk Audio RC85i 2-Way In-Wall Speakers x2 - at the front (L and R)

 

 

 

Polk Audio 255C-RT In-wall / In-ceiling center channel speaker (front center)

 

again I would get subwoofer later on  

 

or

 

Klipsch Speakers from Australia:

 

Klipsch - R1800C x 3 (Back L,Center, R)

 

Klipsch - R1800C x 2 (front L, R)

 

again I would get subwoofer later on

 

 

 

There are brands like Pyle and Polk on amazon which have good reviews on their speakers. Is it worth importing them or should be getting something locally. Though the prices here are considerably different.

 

Thanks for your help.

How much cheaper are you talking? They're not exactly top of the line, so I'd have picked there wasn't much difference.

Sorry I meant the prices of everything like speakers and amps are considerably higher here. I went to AV world and decided to get the marantz sr5010 as that seemed pretty awesome. I was recommended Monitor Audio 165. How is this in comparison to polk rc80i or Klipsch speakers?
