    OK guys-talked the Mrs. into getting rid of the bose. So now this frees up approx $1000. I know you all have been asked this a million times, but I would really like to get some specifics on your suggestions.
    I need a DVD and receiver and obviously some speakers. I don't need a sub that shake the neighborhood, but one with a nice clean sound. I have a 27" Sony Trinitron over 10 yrs old. Great picture but no s-video.
    A fairly small room in a small condo. The smaller the speakers the greater WAF. OK I'm sure I'm leaving something out, but lets see what we all can come up with.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Well here's my recommendation.

    JBL NSP1 $200
    Parts Express DLS 10" $100
    Yamaha RXV-520 $300 (or other similarly priced Yamaha/Onkyo/Denon)
    Pansonic RV32 or RP56 or RP62 $130-$200
    Some Sound King speaker wire from Parts Express
    And a few interconnects from Radio Shack or Walmart

    The NSP1's went back up to 250 on jandr.com and that is the cheapest ive seen them.

    You might want to take a look at the Pioneer VSX-D811S. It sounds great with the DLS sub and the NSP-1s. It has preouts and is capable of delivering 6.1 or 7.1 sound with DTS-ES and DD EX. It has also been reported on this board that the 811 boasts 70W per channel with six channels firing. If power for the future is a concern, then the 811 is a good fit:
