First time poster here but have spent a good deal of time reading here and on other forums.
I recently decided on a Samsung 64D7000 (vs. the 65VT30) and am going to use the extra $ for a receiver and Speakers. Right now I am thinking a 3.1 because my couch is right against my back wall in a corner so there isn't really space to put speakers behind me for a 5.1 setup.
Here is what I am thinking right now and open to all suggestions.
I will have DirecTV and a PS3 as my primary hookups and most of my time will be spent watching Cable (60%) with the rest playing games (10%) watching Blu Rays (20%) and Streaming Netflix / Amazon Video (20%)
Receiver: Yamaha (A867/A800)
Fronts: Klipsch WF-35 Icon-W (saw these on sale at Newegg)
Budget is around $1,000 but flexible as I have always relied on TV speakers and never looked at upgrading before. I am not an audiophile by any means and would be looking for Mid Range stuff, I want good quality but am not looking to drop $$$$ to have the very best
