    I'm new to Surround Sound. I only have $350.00 to $400.00 to spend. I went to Costco and was looking @ a Sony unit, are they a good Surround Sound unit? I'm looking for a receiver ,speakers, DVD and CD player. Something with good bass. Thanks Steve.

    John S has a very good idea on how to build a good system at the price of a box system. I'd go that direction, will sound much better than a HTIB.

    If you want good bass an HTB may not be the right direction to go for you. They usually offer those sub/sat configurations with tiny speakers and a little "bass unit". If you like bass those units will not make you happy.

    [​IMG]You're going to find most people's cut off point for surround systems at these Forums is at the HTIB.
    Nobody has any interest because the sound is considered weak.
    If you have little money to spend then they'll suggest referb receivers to cut costs or building a system in stages like a receiver, center and fronts first, then surrounds and a sub later.
