Hello - I'm brand new to the Forum and feel very lucky to have just found it. I'm building a new house and am trying to decide on a home theater setup. To get right to the point, the #1 priority is that it is small and not very noticable. This will be in the living room and my wife doesn't really want a TV in there let alone a HT system. I will have a 42" plasma and a small 16" deep cabinet below that is not big enough for typical AV equipment. We are not audio/videophiles and watch one or two movies a week and very little TV On paper the Bose Lifestyle 35 is perfect but I'm well aware of the, er... limitations and reputation here. I would prefer a setup like the Gallo mini's but my main problem then is the receiver. I'd prefer have a DVD/CD unit similar to the Bose that is a tiny box on a table. I'd rather not deal with a separate receiver, DVD, CD, etc. or have it in a remote location. Does anyone know of a small Bose type unit that could power the Gallo system or something similar? I'm doing much of the work on the house myself and unfortunately am within a couple of weeks of having the walls sealed up so I need to make a quick decision. I'm hoping to prewire the speakers and come up with a powered DVD/CD player like the Bose. Thanks in advance.
