Help with speaker location & recommendation

10-27-2005, 09:13 AM
I'm building this media room / office area and would appreciate some recommendations for speakers and their location.

I can go in-wall at this point if I want to, since the sheet rock won't be up for a few weeks, but since the media area of the room isn't centered (no, I need to have the desk there so I can't rearrange), then I am thinking that for esthetic reasons, I should only mount in-wall the front and center channels, then go ceiling mount for all of the other speakers.

Like most people in this forum, I'm not an audiophile, but want good bang-for-the buck. I'd like to keep speakers in the $800-$1200 range.
I'm leaning towards Denon AVR-3806 for the receiver, and will probably get the Denon DVD-2910 player.

As for speakers, even though there is no "wife" factor, I do like the Orb Audio 7.1 bundle, based on reviews, and my desire to go single-vendor solution. Too bad they don't have in-wall solution or I would never have even posted this.

So, any suggestions?

Looks a nice setup... with that viewing distance, ideal 720p display would be 60".
