    Ryan,

    For 5 or 6 hundred you can do much better. Stay away from the HTIB set-ups. You can piece together a great set-up from Athena, JBL, etc. for the money.

    For example:

    2 pairs of JBL E30's for -$400
    1 EC35 center for -$140
    1 Dayton sub from PE-$125

    This would sound fantastic. You could always get the E20's for $100 less and they would still perform far better than the sats.

    Sorry, didn't see the Canadian $. If you can stretch the budget buying separate speakers as opposed to the sat/sub set-ups usually pays off. Also has much better re-sale for when you upgrade again!

    Isn't the XR-50 a 5.1 system that already comes with speakers?

    Or are you meaning the SA XR-50 wich is a 6.1 receiver.?


    I was just contemplating this earlier today, that if my apartment burned down and I had to replace everything, I was going to go with a SA XR-50 due entirely to the positive reviews online of this digital wunderamp, and then pair it with three pairs of either Paradigm Cinema 90, or Klipsch RSX-5 satellites and an SVS PB10-ISD subwoofer. That would be a killer HTiB/Bose Lifestyle crushing system! [​IMG]

    Well, unfortunatly my budget has been lowered to about 350ish canadian. Im heavily leaning towards the onkyo SKS-HT520. Is there anything for that price that would be better..after reading reviews i dont think there is.
    Thanks again

    See what kind of deal you can work on the Athena Se package on Boxing Day sale at Future Shop. Borrow the money, or return the 50 and get the 30 and put the money towards this.

    Athena speaker and sub package

    Brent
    It's a FANTASTIC bargain.
