    This is the system that I bought:

    Panasonic SA-XR25 6.1 receiver $236, taxes included.
    Hsu Research Ventriloquist VT-12 6 speaker system $210 shipped (New on Ebay)

    Total $446

    Add the Dayton sub from and you have a great system for less than $600!

    I added an SVS 25-31CS sub plus plate amp from The system sounds great! Reviews on all of these products have been very high.

    When the SA-XR70 comes out, I may upgrade to that.

    I'm fairly proud of my el-cheapo HT creation:

    Onkyo TX-SR501 - $183 factory refurb from ecost.
    Boston Acoustics CR65 - $105 on ebay.
    Boston Acoustics CR55 - $145 retail.
    Boston Acoustics CRC - $180 retail.
    Boston Acoustics VR500 - $149 on ebay.
    Second BA VR-500 - $169 on ebay.

    wire, banana plugs, etc included, I spent about $1000 even for the whole setup. Finding the two VR500's was a bit lucky (especially at that price), but it only took about one month to bring it all together.

    I'm in the process of re-viewing the best of my DVD collection just to hear how they sound. I can't imagine getting better performance for the money.
