    Hello and thanks in advance to anyone who responds with their opinion.
    I plan on purchasing a 54-60 inch tv. 2000 budget. I have 2 top of the line panasonic plasmas upstairs may stick with the same for basement. Not sure.
    I am interested in hearing some suggestions for the surround sound and components. I currently have a ps3 I plan on using down there. I also have 5 bose satellite speakers and sub from 10 years ago. not sure if I should use them or not. I would like to keep the audio under 1000 if possible. I like the idea of streaming pandora and such. I was leaning torwards a high end onkyo setup (9400 series.)
    Please help I need to purchase asap I am about to put the drywall up and would like to run cables and such before.
    The basement is large but the area for a tv is about 9.5 ft viewing distance with a kneewall with bartop behind. I am not sure how I would mount the rear speakers Maybe ceiling speakers because of the kneewall and pool table behind. ?????

    Well, if you want streaming and speakers for $1000...
    That pretty much leaves you whichever Onkyo is the least expensive with it...the 414 or 515.
    Then in speakers, a set of BIC DV would set you back $600-$750. The only other option you really have is Polk Monitor on NewEgg.
    You will never find anybody willing to recommend HTiB.
