    Hey, my old stereo just broke, so I am looking to get a surround sound receiver that comes with a 5.1 speaker system. I am looking for something around or less than $200. I would like for it to supporst DTS. Thanks!

    You want the receiver _and_ the speakers for around 200?
    For that price, you're just going to have to find about the cheapest thing you can. Doing a quick search of some of the major stores, the cheapest HTIB I could find that supported DTS was a little under $300. I couldn't find any HTIB's that were under $200, regardless of features.
    Just for refrence, what a lot of people consider "budget" receivers run over $200, and budget speaker packages run that much without a sub. A budget sub can be had for $125.
    If the price is the biggest concern, head over to www.pricescan.com and find something cheap.
