I am new to the home theater arena and I want to setup a good basic system to provide surround sound for dvd's and music. Right now I have about $500 to spend although I will probably have a little more money to add/upgrade in the next 6-12 months. From reading this forum and some other websites, I have found what I think are 2 pretty good options. The first option is the Kenwood HTB-544 which would be really nice to have everything included since this will be my first HT setup and fits everything within my $500 budget. The second option I am looking at is buying JBL NSP1 speakers and a reasonably priced receiver to go with it. A Denon 1802 would probably be what I want, but I am definitely open to suggestions since I know almost nothing about receivers. The problem that this option leaves me with is no subwoofer for at least 3 months until I can afford one. What do you guys think? Any other good options I should be considering?
