Help me spend some $$$$$

Hi Im new to home theater/ audio I wanted to ask the more experienced members thier thoughts on a system that I am considering buying . The sytem is the Klipsch RF83 system. It will be for a home theater set up in my living room. It will be for about 60% music and 40% movies, I listen to all kinds of music from reggae to gospel . I plan on getting a Marantz reciever along with the speakers. Can anyone give some insight into this system. Should I be looking into the RF63 system instead ?.. Thanks
Only YOU can decide what sounds good to YOU.Others will tell you whether or not they like the Klipsch/Marantz and that will do YOU no good.YOU need to hear the equipment YOU are thinking about getting and decide if YOU like the sound.Notice all the emphasis on YOU?This may not sound helpful,but believe me,it really is.Good luck.
I'll second the response from Tpreaves. If it makes YOU happy, and YOU like it, it doesn't much matter what anyone else thinks.
That will sound great, and you will love it. But I must say, that's the same place I started because those were the big names I remembered from when I was a kid, and along with McIntosh those were the "big" names in high end audio that everyone knew.

They are slightly different companies now, and if you are going to listen to 60% music, I would suggest that you take a few weeks to read through the forums here on speakers, processors, preamps and amps before you buy anything.

Also, check out the Absolute Sound 2010 products of the year issue that's on new stands now.

Remember, if you buy speakers and amps used here on Audiogon, you can basically rent them, and sell them again if they are not your cup of tea.

I suggest buying speakers, subwoofers, power amps, analog preamps, turntables, , all cables, DAC's and Disc players used when you can.

Recievers, pre-pro's and all video stuff changes too much, and I think it very finicky and I would buy those new.

Good luck and enjoy your new hobby.
Thanks for all the responses. I am in a unique situation,
I live in the US Virgin Islands. It has no Audio Shop's/ Stores over here. I am basically going to have to buy equipment based on reputation. Buying used may not work out for me due to the cost of shipping to my location. That's why I am appealing to the experts for advice.

I don't feel sorry for you though, you live in the Virgin Islands!!
Believe me if you were getting hammered for shipping on almost every product that you buy like me you would be sorry too. I can see the beach from my house though,hope that makes you feel better ,oh by the way the forecast for today is Partly cloudy with the temp of 90. Cheers!!!!!
I'd go Denon with the Klipsch's. Also, consider that the Klipsch's will not sound as good sitting or listening off-axis! The horns are very directional, and focus sound. On-axis, with the right tonality and matching equip, they are very dyamnic as passive speakers, with very good presence -excellent for movies, and descent for a variety of music, with strong dynamics, efficiency and good detail. They actually, BTW, do best with tube gear in the system! - For the record.
So, just consider. If you're music first, get a tube integrated into the sytsem for 2 channel. Also, the Denon's Audyssey and warm smooth tonal balance work best with Klipsch's here, as a receiver line. Yeah, I like the Denon match there.
Another geat dynamic choice for movies/music are the powered sub tower's from Def Tech and Boston! Clear dynamic sound with the built in powered woofers, that sound much better off-axis, and moving around the house. Pluse these speakers sound very dynamic and strong due to the built in amp in the woofers.
Oh the nostalgia of the RF83 and denon package! That was my version 2 home theater system (now at version 5). That system now resides hapily in my neighbors basement.. My only advise is to start somewhere, lay of the forums and hope there is a upgrade bug vaccine on the horizon. Enjoy!
Lots of valuable suggestions so far. The "what sounds good to you" suggestion is truly the last word regardless of what you read anywhere. Unfortunately, with the vanishing brick and mortar stores available to audition these products your/we're left with reviews suggestions and most importantly personal comparative experiences such as Docrobbi has done. You may notice he didn't get into the this is better than that talk. I'm guessing he's made some good choices which simply got better with every upgrade.

I'm on my second upgrade from 5.1 Integra/Sony/Triangle to a Full Pioneer Elite 7.1 HDMI, Blueray , Plasma,/Triangle system.

IMO the Integra/Onkyo was my choice for a linear solid state receiver in my 5.1 system. The Arcam had a slightly more refined sound but lacked the HT controls of the day. for my 7.1 system I was able to audition the Arcam, Marantz, Integra, and Denon, in the same location. I auditioned the Sony, Pioneer, Denon, and Nad, in another location. Not exactly a scientific comparison but it didn't need to be. The class D Pioneer Elite was a clear favorite and made system integration very simple. My choice for a linear amplified receiver would be the Integra/Onkyo.

You'll notice in the audio and HT world there are more speaker systems than any other component. That's because speakers are so critical in your perceived sound, or what you want you system to sound like. Fortunately, with seven channels a speakers attributes need not be as critical as with a two channel system. Here again, "what sounds good to you" is key. Keep in mind the sensitivity specification, the higher the number the easier the load on a receivers smallish power supply.

No room is too small for 7.1 with room correction. I typically suggest seven matching smaller two way speakers and a real subwoofer like a Velodyne or JL.
