Hi. I currently have have a PS3, xbox 360, Wii, and HD-DVR connected to a Bose 3-2-1 system. My TV is a 50in Samsung plasma. I want to replace the Bose with a better system (a 5.1 or 7.1) since I'm not satisfied with it. I am currently looking at these 2 systems: #1 http://www.us.onkyo.com/model.cfm?m=HT-S9100THX&class=Systems&p=i #2 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Yamaha+and+Klipsch+Home+Theater+Audio+Package/9999132100050000.p?id=pcmprd132100050000&skuId=9999132100050000 Any thoughts? I'm expecting someone to say that I actually need to listen to the systems and let my ears decide. I was able to listen to system #2 in best buy and it sounded pretty good (however, I'm a newbie and don't really have much to compare with). However, I dont have access to the Onkyo system. The dealers here in Grand Rapids do not have them on display. The review that I read on Cnet was very favorable though. I know that Onkyo is well known for good receivers but not for speakers. And, I know that Yamaha makes good receivers and Klipsch makes good speakers. I guess what I'm looking for here is an expert telling me something like "It's a no brainer, choose system #1" or "It's a no brainer, definitely system #2". Also, I'm aware that there are probably dozens of other systems that I can get for around $1000, so, feel free to make recommendations for this price point. Thanks.
