I'm considering getting either a cheap Home Theater In a Box, or spending a bit more for components. What I really want to know is; does the extra cost deliver an audible improvement in sound quality worth the extra money? I know that whether or not it's "worth it" is subjective, but I'm asking for opinions from any of you who have a HTIB and/or component parts or have listened to both. What I've been looking at so far: HTIB: Acoustic Research HC6 HT Speaker System w/Denon 1803 reciever Total Cost- Approx. $800 Components: Paradigm mini-monitors(or similar) HSU vtf-2 subwoofer Denon 1803 reciever Total Cost- Approx. $1500 I've looked at reviews at audioreview.com and seen that these products all recieve great reviews, but of course, they are great for their price. Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated. I'll never be able to test these two systems together, so that's not really an option. Thanks.
