This is my first HT setup(well, first "personal" setup-my parents had a Bose Acoustimass-15 running through a Pioneer VSXD608 reciever with a Sony 35'' TV and a Sony DVP-S550D DVD player-I guess I consider this an upgrade in some ways), and I was looking for opinions, suggestions, substitutes, etc. I already have the Video portion taken care of(Samsung TXM-3296HF 32'' HDTV, Toshiba SD5700+Bettercables Silverserpent Component), my inquiry mainly concerns the Audio portion. I was able to pick up a Kenwood VR-6060(http://www.bestbuy.com/detail.asp?e=...1&cat=3&scat=4) last night for $360.00 at BB($499 reg price-$100 instant rebate-$40 coupon that came w/ Monsters INC. DVD) that seems to have all the modes, and inputs i want. They even threw in a KLH center channel and and 2 rears package for free($99 dollar value, but the speakers seem of low quality so ill probably just get rid of them). Good deal? I am considering(unless otherwise persuaded) pairing this reciever with either the JBL NSP1($279.00 at Costco)speaker package with a Sony SA-WM40( about $130 anywhere) sub OR a JBL Simply Cinema 135 System (JBL SCS135SI http://www.jandr.com/JRProductPage.p...e,Product_Name)that is about $300 shipped. What does everyone think? I bought my video equipment based on the advice I found here at the forums, and I am sure you guys will steer me in the right direction yet again. Thanks for all your help in advance!!
