Hi Guys, Recently bought a 46" Samsung HDTV and will be upgrading to HD sat. service soon. Currently it is hooked up through our old Kenwood receiver with a pair of Sound Dynamics tower speakers and a sub. The room is our living room and it measures 12'x20'. Back 12 yr ago these cost around $1200 so they were not low end (for the time). Now, here's where the lack of experience comes into play--I thought our set up sounded pretty good (for what it was). I'm in Walmart the other day and listened to a $300 LG 5.1 theater system and I have to admit that it sounded better than what we have. Now that has me thinking that if an ultra low end system sounds better to me, then what about a $500 set up from Samsung. Am I totally tone deaf or has sound improved that much in 12 yr or so?? We watch mainly tv with a lot of auto sports and an occasional movie--maybe a couple a month and no gaming at all. I realize that sound is a personal thing but would I be wasting our $$ for a 5.1 system with a blu ray player int the $4-$500 range?? Any and all avice is really appreciated. Thanks!!
