Hey, I'm new around here. I'm 15, and don't know too much about TVs or audio setups. We just bought a 57" Hitachi Projection HDTV which is being delivered Saturday, but we still haven't bought a sound system. My parents told me to find out as much info as possible before we go looking around. We have the wiring and everything hooked up for a 5.1 system. Do you guys have any suggestions for reciever&speakers? Money isn't that big of an issue right now. Personally, I'd like something with DDS, and that also upconverts "flat" (is that the right word? I don't know..example: TV) signals to PL2. Any suggestions/comments, or are there better things than what I want? Thanks

money isn't that big of a deal? you've got to give us some type of budget because i could be offering you a 50,000 dollar system versus a 2000 dollar system.....

I agree that it would be most helpful if you could list a budget range of some type.

Also what components do you need? Reciever, speakers, sub? I am sure that once you answer these short questions, you will find many responses.

Good luck,

Brandon

Good point... Ok, as for a budget, I'm guessing around the $500-$2000 range. And we need a reciever, speakers, and a sub.

Even that range (500-2000) is huge. For $500 you can barely get the cheapest receiver on the market plus a pair of entry level speakers but $2000 could probably replace both my 5.1 system which sounds better than any cineplex that i've heard and my stereo.

I'm not very good at this Posted Image I'll just settle at $1000-$1250.
