I'm sure you've noticed that with most categories of buyable items, there is an optimal price range. Below that price range, you can get alot by paying a little more. Above that range, you'll get only a small improvement but have to pay alot for it. What price range would you say has the best performance/price for a 5.1 setup? The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of getting something setup. I started with a budget of $500 in mind, but from what I'm reading, I should really spend a little more (~$1000). You might be thinking, why doesn't the noob just search!? Well, i tried but i just get redirected back to the search page and no results show. So basically, I can't search.
