Hey guys, well just came on board with you guys here because just moved into my new house, and was wondering if you guys might be able to help me out a bit.
Im looking to purchase a new surround sound system, but not too sure whats good. Im looking to get a 7.1 surround sound system for a mid size room or maybe my basement in the entertainment center. I have a 55' Samsung UN55B8000 tv(s) so i want a great system to match it. Once again im a n00b at this and just wanted to get some input as to whats good in 7.1

Sony? Panasonic? Onkyo? Samsung? i simply do not know, but i LOVE something thats very loud, crystal clear, and has amazing bass to it. Something that when you turn it on, it hits ur heart. (i love techno, so i love alot of bass, sorry lol)

Please help me out guys. Thanks

The first question I would ask is what is your budget?

pharmaceutical​ reps, suppliers of medical equipment and for some

reason the RNC."

A 2nd question might be to break down the percentage of use for your potential system between movies, music, etc.

I'm sure members with much better knowledge of systems will weigh in...but let me throw these systems out there as a starter:

The S-Series systems from SVS.  SVS is an internet direct company which is well-regarded among the membership here.  They make quality products. 

Good luck!

Do you already have a receiver or are you looking to pick a new one those up as well?

Gotcha.  Since you also need a receiver then...you might want to consider the Onkyo HTIB systems.  They are also highly-rated among members of the HTF.

Onkyo htib's are pretty good for the price but with a $1200 budget I'd go with seperates. Something like an Onkyo-507 ($304) receiver, a BIC ($193) sub from PartsExpress.com which leaves $600-700  for speakers and wires/cables.
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

If you want to persue that option, then start a thread in the Speakers and Subs section along with the Theile/Small parameters of the sub.  Some "car audio" subs work great in the home and others are average.  A few suck.  You have to run the parameters through a design program and then check the results.  If the results are acceptable, you are looking at $150 to $500 for the amp depending on your goals.

Take copies of your favorite techno rap music and listen to as many speaker systems that are within your price range.  Speaker selection will be the most individual and hardest selection to make.  It should not be based so much on what any of us say but what system sounds best to you.   After you listen to may options I am sure one of them will stand out as your favorite and that is the system you should buy for yourself.  The selection of your receiver will then pretty much flow from that.
