Hey, I'm new around here. I'm 15, and don't know too much about TVs or audio setups. We just bought a 57" Hitachi Projection HDTV which is being delivered Saturday, but we still haven't bought a sound system. My parents told me to find out as much info as possible before we go looking around. We have the wiring and everything hooked up for a 5.1 system. Do you guys have any suggestions for reciever&speakers? Money isn't that big of an issue right now. Personally, I'd like something with DDS, and that also upconverts "flat" (is that the right word? I don't know..example: TV) signals to PL2. Any suggestions/comments, or are there better things than what I want? Thanks

money isn't that big of a deal? you've got to give us some type of budget because i could be offering you a 50,000 dollar system versus a 2000 dollar system.....

I agree that it would be most helpful if you could list a budget range of some type.

Also what components do you need? Reciever, speakers, sub? I am sure that once you answer these short questions, you will find many responses.

Good luck,

Brandon

Good point... Ok, as for a budget, I'm guessing around the $500-$2000 range. And we need a reciever, speakers, and a sub.

Even that range (500-2000) is huge. For $500 you can barely get the cheapest receiver on the market plus a pair of entry level speakers but $2000 could probably replace both my 5.1 system which sounds better than any cineplex that i've heard and my stereo.
