I have been trying to search the web for months and I am finally throwing in the towel and admitting that I really have no idea as to what Im looking for. I refinished the basement in our house, which seems pretty common on this forum. I am planning to purchase a Panasonic TC-P55VT50 600Hz 3D Plasma HDTV, other than that Im not set on anything other than the fact that I really do not want a HTIB or any bose equipment in my home. I'm sure a 5.1 system would work just fine but I would be open to a 7.1. I have a buget of $1000-2,000 if need be to get that much better a system. The room is kind of an odd shape measuring roughly 21'x17'. I have attached some pictures and a rough drawing to better show the shape. The entertainment stand is empty because I had to relocate everything to another room while remodeling the basement and well the tv just hasent made its way back into the basement and after being in our bedroom for so long we are now looking to purchase the VT50 for the basement.
