I'm new to the whole HT thing, cuz I just bought the Sony KP-46wt500, and now I'm thinkin of getting a surround sound system to complete my dvd experience. The only thing is that my budget is not as flexible as i want it to be(cuz of the TV!) Now for my questions: Does Onkyo actually make good speakers? Because I'm lookin at the HTS660 or HTS650 HTiB, and they both are less than $500, which seems like a good deal. And if this is a good system, then i want it. Then theres the JBL NSP1II speaker package, with the PB12 sub, OR the SCS150SI. With JBL, i was leaning towards a Yamaha receiver. The only reason I'm lookin at the more expensive JBL speakers + receiver package is because I can get those two brands at a discount. What I want to know if is it worth paying a little more for the JBL+Yamaha deal, or should I just stick to the Onkyo stuff and enjoy a basic surround system?? Or does anyone else recommend a good set of speakers or a HTiB to start off with for less than $800? Thanks!
