    Need the speakers, receiver and dvd player. Can you anyone help me decide the best bang for the buck? Will be listening to music as well as movies through the system and the size of the room is 20x14.

    THANKS!

    Eric, since you're asking for specific-model recommendations for an entire system, I've moved your post to A/V Systems. The Basics area is for general discussion at the beginner level, not specific-model recommendations. Thanks! JB

    Onkyo and Harman Kardon have good entry level receivers. H/K are known for their warm sound for music. I have a set of Fluance SX-HTB speakers and they have excellent value. There good for music and the mains have an excellent full undistorted sound. http://fluance.com/fluan5speaks.html
    For a sub there's HSU http://www.hsuresearch.com/ There's also the Ventriloquist speaker set at HSU.The Dayton sub also gives great value. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=300-632 For a DVD player it depends on what you're watching movies with. There's the Momitsu which can upconvert a 480i signal, has a DVI output and will also play any region.

    Yeah, the Onkyo HTIB sounds great. If I were in a market like u, for $500, I beleive its the best out there.

    Another poster just made a thread about a brand new Onkyo 870 (and presumably an 877) that counts as the first THX Ultra Certified HTIB. It probably clocks in under a grand and if it's out and lives up to the pedigree of the 760 and 770 series, WOW!
