http://www.bestbuy.com/detail.asp?e...t=1552&scat=242 Thats my current system. I paid about 300 for it. How my question is how much difference will I hear out of a system that runs, say $1000. I read several reviews and it seems like my system got better reviews than the high end stuff. Do you think its because more people go for the cheaper stuff? I would really like to hear opinions from someone who started out in my range, and then upgraded to a higher end setup. Was there a great deal of change of quality? Or are most of the changes just in volume. My main complaint about my system is the volume level. Mainly on older dvds. Sometimes I would just like a little more volume. My theory is that you should be able to make your ears hurt . That doesnt mean I like it that loud, but I'd like to have more than I need.
