Hi all. I do not know if I'am posting in the right section of the site, but I'am a noobish audiophile and want to upgrade my underpowered Logitech X-530 speakers conected via an adaptor to my tv. The adaptor actually converts stereo to multi-channel sound. It's meant for my computer, so I feel these speakers are not up to par for use on my Television. I am looking to buy a Home theater in a box very soon, and I can't find any helpful information on the internet to know what to buy. I am willing to pay anywhere from $250 to $350. I don't want to go over. I want one with an integrated DVD player, AM/FM, and a modest amount of features. I want something powerful, but quality is more important than quantity, and I would settle for a modest wattage for a good quality sound system. Unless I can pay less than $350, I do not want to buy a seperate receiver, DVD player, and speakers. Thats why I'm choosing to go with a HTIB. I also want at least 5.1. And guys, please don't urge me to pay 100 dollars more to go with some 700 watt yamaha or something, this is strictly my price range. Right now, I am leaning toward the Pioneer HTP-2550DV. Please, any input is greatly appreciated. I am 16, and this is for a fairly sized bedroom. For the rear speakers, are they supposed to produce sound all the time, or only when a sound effect happens in the back? For the system I have now, my rear speakers are hung by the wall against my bed (its right next to my body). Is this the right way to go about this? Also, I watch alot of DVDs, but I want good sound when watching TV shows. Is a HTIB meant to produce multichannel/good quality sound when I'm just watching tv. Please, any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks alot in advance guys.
