Check this out...it will solve your problem....some went below $2k at KEC if I remember correctly.... http://www.klipsch.com/products/list...f-systems.aspx
Their subs already entry level cost at least 800-900 odd.
Unless TS goes for a quintet 3 series, second hand sub, second hand AV amp and probably an entry level DVD player - since only utilising component video. That aside, still $$$ has to be poured on cables .. which, then yanyewkay's post will start to take effect
KEC doesn't sell Klipsch. Tat Chuan does. Unless the person went to mix and match.
Also the Marantz Amp output is 70W/speaker, just wonder can it drive up the speakers? Which is 100w/speaker. I think the woofer is even more than that. Sorry, asking noob question as I am a noob in this
For mediacorp programming, most likely you'll be running the Dolby Pro Logic/II, DTS Neo, CS II surround modes to have a "pseudo" effect. You won't get problems when running in this mode, but somehow the speaker that has its timbre mismatched will definitely sound out of place.
Another thing is how well the amp does this is pretty depedant on the DSP chip. Yamaha seems to be the best at this. Denon still sounds abit muffled (again, its a personal POV - others' listening tastes might differ)

Same onkyo set? Same drivers? Same tweeters? .. how come i see the fronts stated as rogers? 70w/speaker is pretty "ok" but if you want to go loud, you'll need more juice.
Able to drive the speakers? That'll depend on the ohm load on the speaker and the sensitivity of the speaker. eg. 4ohm being the harder to drive/ 8ohm being easier to drive. As for sensitivity, 86-**** seems to be the norm. Anything higher will definitely be better.
Think the only limiting factor would be your budget. Should you take a listen at the klipsch promedia rather than the onkyo and pair them up with either a marantz or yamaha ... you'll know what you'll be missing.
as an ex audiophile...to avoid excessive spending
i would advise u go to carrefour and choose the cheapest ht system...if u dun mind preferably 2nd hand also can considered from echoloft bns or xtremeplace
The money and time spend on 'latest'system which going to be superseded by newer,improved technology in an six months time is just isn't worth it....
water hose size cable aside......there also the danger of hooked to the so call dedicated mainline/power line/rewiring of yr whole house with so-called audiophile grade wiring..
Anyway HT is a very costly path, so might as well get a decent system and don't touch it after that (which i'm doing so at the moment).
As for going 2nd hand, 1 has to becareful since capacitors, eletronic components etc doesn't last past 5 years...
Carrefour is a place i'll go for groceries, not HT. Its like asking people to buy lenses from Courts and pay full price rather than going to various camera shops to get your lenses.
To be VERY TRUTHFULLY HONEST here... it's no point investing in a good sound system when you're gonna be using it in the living room. Too much sound loss and the design won't be easy.
Get a room just for entertainment and soundproof it, then you're set.
