    I am in the market for a Home Theater. I have roughly 500 to 600 to spend, not much but i want to get something i can build around. i currently live in an apartment, but will buy a house in the next yr. i am limited to about 200 at best buy. i have a good dvd player and my tv is decent, but doesnt have audio outputs. i can route it through my vcr for the time being until i upgrade it, but not looking to upgrade it at this point though. Ii was looking at getting a box system, but have changed my mind since researching. This is the one I was looking into Yamaha Model: YHT-440. I think the reciever is good enough to build around but didnt know if its better to build around speakers or a reciever.

    here is somethings i found(from Bestbuy).
    yamaha HTR-5640 (higher end)

    KLH R-5100 (never heard of it, but had lots of i/p and 6.1 channel and higher watts than yamaha, could get better
    speakers if get this one)

    Onkyo TX-SR501

    JBL SCS160SI
    JBL SCS136SI (both same price)

    I appreciate any suggestions.
