I admit it...I'm a newbie and don't know much. All I know I've gathered from this website. So any help I get is greatly appriecated!!! Here it goes. I currently own a SONY DAV-S300. But it no longer has sound coming from the speakers. The unit was Ok and served it's purpose as our first system. We used it to both watch movies and listen to music. Not great but we were on a budget. Still are, but the budget is much bigger. $2500 or less. Below I have begun an outline of what I think are good components, mainly based off what I read from this site. Please feel free to add what ever comments/help you have. Speakers Rocket by Onix Extremely Luscious Theater (ELT) $999.99 Are they that much better then the Rocket Tykes 5.1 Home Theater for $399? Also I like the Fluance SX-HTB which are around $249 but I would need help finding a sbuwoofer. Most likely the SVS Model 25-31PCi for $549. Receiver Denon AVR-3805 Refurbished $699.99 Any comments on refurb stuff? Bad idea? Doesn't matter? DVD Player Denon DVD-1910 $249.00 CD Changer DENON DCM-280 REFURBISHED 5-Disc CD Changer Player $99 TurnTable (Optional but I do have lots of Vinyl) Denon DP-29F $110 This puts me at roughly $2300 which is in my budget. Iwant to stay under $2500. I will add a TV in the spring when I get my bonus. Thanks in advance for your help! PS-I hope this is the right forum for this.
