    i have the Onkyo HTS 650 system, Circuit City sells it for $499, and I absolutely love it. doesn't come with a dvd player though. i recommend it.

    Combination of the Onkyo SKSHT-500 Speaker Set ($250 at Circuit City) and either the Panasonic SAHE100 reciever or Pioneer VSX-811 reciever ($299). Add a DVD player of your choice ($150).

    The reciever that comes with the Onkyo HT-650 apparently has problems with the subwoofer channel, according to another thread on this forum. The SKSHT-500 speaker set (the speaker set that comes with the HT-650) is very nice though, and should be considered.

    For about $600, the Kenwood HTB-509 is quite a complete package:

    - 5 disk Progressive Scan DVD player
    - Budget but decent receiver
    - 5 monitor-style speakers, (tone matched)
    - External self-powered sub

    Here is what makes it great: all the individual parts are upgradeable if one piece breaks or you decide to buy other parts.

    I saw this at Circuit City before Christmass for this price.

    Hope this helps.
