Hey my names JT, i've recently decided to upgrade my 1000watt home theater system from best buy, to something much more powerful and suitable for my new house. I've had this little stereo for about 4 years now and for $300 it's cool but blown out. I'm looking to custom build a stereo for my living room, i'm really looking for BIG bass and clear sound. Upgrading is not a concern, it's mostly about music capability but something I can watch movies and have a crisp, clear surround sound to go along. 3D isn't important, or bluray, nothing too special as far as the receiver goes. I'm looking for a setup with the absolute best bass possible, combined with just crisp sound. Music is the primary use, and something clear enough to enjoy movies also. What can you guys recommend for around $1500? If it's really worth spending more than that I'm open to suggestions.
