First time poster. I've done weeks of research on-line and shooping locally. The more I look, the more confused I get. I really prefer to stay around the $1,000 level for the total home theater system. (Realizing additional cost for cables/wiring) These 2 systems seem to stick out to me. I would appreaciate any help folks can give as to why I should buy one or the other. I'm still open to any other suggestions as well. Thanks for any help provided! A confused first time buyer!
