I haven't visited this forum in a while and am not too familiar with new products or reviews, but this gal is looking to get a HTiB for her boyfriend. She'd like to spend no more than $300 (maybe a tad more) and has a DVD player, so that is not necessary. So far, the best ones seem to be the Kenwood HTB-405/505 and the Pioneer HTP-220. Do you people have any other suggestions or opinions on these sets? I was leaning toward the Pioneer, but I browsed this forum quick and found much lovin' going toward the Kenwood. I think Onkyo is out of her price range. Thanks for any help.
