So let me very quickly tell you what I currently have. I am currently living in the top floor of a house of which my landlord lives right below me, so the option of blasting the speakers/sub at any given time is generally a no go. My living room is about 14'x 15. So I am not looking to spend a lot of money on a speaker setup that I won't get to really take advantage of for sometime. So really I am looking for a below 400.00 CDN (so like 325USD) set up. Currently I have have the following. -42" LG Plasma TV -PS3 and Xbox 360 -Computer hooked up to tv as both my home server and I stream downloaded TV shows of it to the TV -Logitech Z-5500 The current speakers are my roomates and he is moving out at the end of the month, and will need to get something as I don't want just the TV speakers. I wouldn't call myself a HUGE audio person. I want things to sound better than the standard TV speakers but I don't need a huge 2000.00 7.1 setup that I won't be able to take full advantage of. I have an older Sony STR-DE595 Receiver which I could use if that would be better than going the Home Theater in a Box route. Or would it make more sense to use my current receiver and look into stand alone speakers to go with it?
