Re: Which Speakers?
I haven't had a Pioneer receiver since my VSX-09 Elite which was an older model (1997) and a little edgy in the upper end but the newer ones I've heard are much better than this, likely due to improved handling of digital audio.
What is your speaker budget and is the display going to be on the long or short wall?
I must agree with multiple subs (ideally four but i digress) multiple 15" subs might seriously overpower a basement room with low ceilings. concrete walls and a relatively small volume might be better served with two 12's or a single 15, but then again it depends on the sub......
