Hi, I am new to the Forum. My room is 24 x 14 ft I use it 50% for Music and 50% for surround movies. I spent about $600 and it sounds like ear candy to me. Sony STR V555ES 600 watts 5.1 surround $50 2 DCM TF-600 for mains $125 2 DCM TF-600 for surrounds $150 1 Definitive tech C-1 for the center (came with the DCMs) 1 Klipsch SW-12 Subwoofer $125 1 Samsung BD-C6500 WiFi Blu Ray $75 I use Analog 5.1 cables and let the Blu Ray decode HD Audio signals. Bass management is controlled with the Amplifier.I also use an optical cable for DTS signals. Could I have done Better with a Theater in a Box? Please give your feedback .
