Im looking to spend about 300 bucks on a home theater system. What would you guys reccomend (sp) for that price range? Also, i wasnt sure what section to put this under.

Thanks for the help guys.

Although "good" is a relative term, I have to say a HT for $300 will most likely fall out of anyone's definition of "good". IMO, the bare minimum would be one of the Onkyo HTiB's (Home Theater in a Box) at around $500. I suggest saving up a little more money or startng out with a basic A/V receiver and a couple inexpensive speakers.

What Jeff said is spot-on. If that's the budget then get a $150 receiver and a pair of $150 speakers. If you try to stretch $300 further you won't be getting anything you're likely to be happy with for long.

Research low-end AVRs by Panasonic, JVC or Pioneer and see what's there.

Hey guys, Your probably going to have to purchase a "in box home theater" set-up. There's a huge selection and some pretty good quality products out there.
