i'm moving apartments, and have been living off my roommates stereo equipment for a few years. now it's time for me to put together a home theater and i have no clue what i'm doing. i have nothing right now, and i've been asking around for advice and opinions...but there's so much out there that it's become quite confusing. i was hoping to only spend $1,000, but after doing some research, this doesn't seem very realistic. my budget for this project is $2,000. i'm a huge music fan, and i enjoy movies as well. however, i'll definitely be listening to more music than watching movies. i live in a standard size apartment, so i don't need anything rediculously big. i want to make sure that what i get now lasts a long time, and has a rich, full, clear sound. i want something that i can blast should i ever feel the urge, although i don't often have a need to do so. having said that, here's what i've been thinking about. again, i have no clue what i'm doing, but i've gotten some advice and based on that, here's what i was looking into: Receiver: Denon AVR-1803 ($500) Denon AVR-2802 (found on ebay for $400) Outlaw Audio 1050 ($400) DVD/CD Changer: Samsung DVD-C621 ($150) PANASONIC DVD-CP72 (found on ebay for $150) Front Floor Speakers: Polk Audio R50 ($450) Polk Audio RTi70 ($600) Center Speaker: Polk Audio CSi30 ($150) Suround Speakers: Polk Audio FXi30 ($280) Sub Woofer: Polk Audio PSW250 ($150) so that gives you an idea of what i've been thinking about. that's already around $1500 and i have no idea what to do about a TV. i've been wondering about those Home Theater In A Box deals, as well as the pre-packaged home theater speaker systems. are those good? i saw the Polk RM7200 that looked nice, as well as a YamahaYHT-940 home theater system that looked good...but i don't know how reliable those pre-packaged systems are. a friend recommened a JBL 5-Piece Home Theater System, but again - i'd have no clue what i'd need to add to that or how good those are. if you'd please make suggestions, offer replacement ideas, tell me what kind of system you have, etc...that'd be wonderful. feel free to build examples of home theaters for me, to give me more ideas and examples. i've also looked into Paradigm speakers, but i went to their website and they had no prices listed. basically - HELP!
