    Can someone help a gal in distress......

    Hey Everyone..........

    I finally saved enough money ($3000) to purchase my first ever Amp and Preamp for a 5.1 Home Theater. The only problem is, I don't know which Amp/Preamp to buy. My living / dining room measure 25 X 15 feet. I will be using my HT for mostly DVD video viewing. But then again, I don't want to sacrifice on audio listening neither. If anyone can suggest a system for me, it will be greatly appreciated. One thing I should mention is that I live in an apartment.

    Thanking you in advance.

    P.S. I'm looking at speakers made by Paradigm and Energy.

    If you're dead set on seperates, I'd start with this preamp:

    If you're not opposed to a used amp, you can get a sweet amp from Rotel, Adcom, Acurus and others for around $500, leaving around $1000 for speakers. That's going to be tough, seeing as how a subwoofer would take at least around $500 of that. I would either:

    A) Buy speakers a piece at a time as more money comes available and go with the seperates.


    B) Go with a $1000-ish reciever and get all your speakers now.
