I am a novice when it comes to home theater systems and I am wondering what to look for. Here are my parameters: I have a fairly small room- about 12’ x 18’. I would like to use the system for watching television as well as listening to music. I am pretty serious about how well my music sounds although right now I have nothing as my stereo went out on me about 6 months ago. I definitely want surround sound as well as the capabilities to expand the system with a few components. I don’t want to get something just to get it, but I don’t think I need all of the really expensive “bells and whistles” either. I want something that I enjoy and will be of good quality. My immediate concern right now is a receiver, and I will add speakers later. The receivers I have been considering have been in the $300.00 to $400.00 range. I do not mind spending that, but if I can get something less expensive that I will be impressed with, I wouldn’t mind spending a little less, but satisfaction is probably a little bit more important than $$. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am not necessarily looking for specific advice on brands and models, but more on what to look for and what price range to stay within. Thank you, Joe Z.
