    You might want to check out the Onkyo 650-which is my first suggestion and then my second would be the Kenwood 505. The Forum was very helpful to me in picking out my first system. It scares me to think of what I could have bought. The Onkyo has a 150 watt sub and no plastic. It is a strong performer for the money. You still would have $250-300 left over for a DVD player and better cables. Good Luck!

    I agree on the Onkyo 650. Mine handled LOTR very well. The 150 watt sub shakes the house. For the money, it is a great system. Onkyo is putting out two new systems with the 650 as a base, but adding a dvd player. I think the next one up from the 650 will retail at around $699. The highest price system upgrades the receiver and has a dvd changer. You really need to try an listen to them, though. What I think is "great" you may not.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I was
    being swayed by the higher watts
    of the pioneer. But I know that doesn't
    necessarily mean better. I just was worried
    about cranking the movies.
