Hello, I am pretty new to the HT world and am looking for a system that would compliment my 27" tv mostly for DVD movies and maybe some gaming. A friend of mine is willing to sell his Nakamich 8.5 system for half the retail cost and I was wondering if anyone can comment about this particular system's pros and cons. (Obvious con is the price - at half the retail price, it's still pretty exp.) Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
