The only thing that I have is my TV (samsung 32" txn3245fp), and now I need to compliment it with speakers, dvd, receiver, etc. I started looking at a HTiB but i figure that separates would be more upgradable. I have compiled a few different options that I am looknig at. What do yall think of each and which one would you buy? I dont really wanna spend more than $600 (including S/H) right now. Option 1: Complete HTiB Denon DHT-683DVD as seen here , it seems to be a really good deal. Price: $590 before S/H Option 2: Fluance AV-HTB($200)(not SX cuz speakers have to be black or silver) Panasonic s55s dvd player($110) Panasonic SA-HE75 receiver($160) Price: $480 before S/H Option 3: Onkyo HTS-650(refurbished $280) Panasonic s55s dvd player($110) Price: $390 before S/H Option 4: Onkyo SR500 (refurbished $150) receiver Onkyo HT500 (refurbished $150) speakers Panasonic s55s dvd player($110) Price: $410 before S/H So there they are. I'm not really stuck on the s55 dvd player, but its cheap and has progressive scan, optical output and MP3. I've been researching this stuff for a while, and I'm pointing towards option 2. I'd like the receiver and dvd player to be same color. I know I'm picky, but oh well. Sorry if my choices suck, I am complete n00b at HT. ps, one question: is the onkyo HTS-650 as seen in option 3 the same as combining the SR500 and HT500?
