Sounds like dad is getting them off on the right foot :)

Congrats that sounds like it will get them started well!
The LX5 is common enough (at least in my area) that I would just add another one for the Center channel in that secnd system.

Try to keep them from spending money where they don't need too. Most of the speakers are from out of my house from the various systems I have. So dad gets to do some replacement upgrading and momma can't get to upset since I did help the boys :)

well the final line up is shaping up

On the first system I settled on a center channel by Polk CS250-S

And on the 2nd set I was able to score on some older Polkies also

Front: Monitor 60's
Center: CS1 II
Rears: Optimus LX5's
Sub: Optimus Pro Sw100P

The Polk speaker setup is a great start. I have an all Polk setup in one of my secondary systems. Four Polk RT25i (front and rear), CS245i (center) and PSW450 sub. Its powered by an Onkyo AVR. It sounds terrific in two channel or 5.1.

Very nice looking systems

I like the Polk's, as in, I have started redoing my system with Monitor 70's and the RTi A1's. I added a Onkyo TX-NR801 AV tuner. I also like the Vizio 55 incher. Things have changed so much from when I grew up.
