I have a Pioneer VSX-D810S, Sony DVP-NS725P, Volodyne CT100 and Hitachi 51S500 RPTV and no speakers at this time.......Personally, I think I have a good start to a decent little Home Theater. The Pioneer was purchased about 2-3 years ago with the intention of building the HT but I am just now able to finish the system. I am somewhat happy with it but don't know if it's worth keeping and building onto or not. My question is this: keep it as and build around it or get a HTiB w/o the DVD (which I already have, of coarse), just get speakers or ??? I don't know too much about amps, pre-amps, equalizers, etc and only skim the surface of I profess to know now. My budget is $1000.
