I am attempting to setup a sound/home theater system in a room that is 22 X 25. It will not be a dedicated theater, but a "den". I am thinking of purchasing the Sony KV32XBR400 because I love watching TV. This leaves with with two main problems: receiver, and speakers. I have looked and read reviews for the Yahama RX - 1000, but would rather not spend $900. I have then gone to the Yamaha HTR 5280, but this is about $600. Before I decide, can anyone recommend something for less than the $600 that will do the same if not better than the 5280. It must have an A/B switch so I can also use it to listen to music in a second room. Next problem, the speakers. I have looked at the Home Theater in a box, and wow, the prices seem RIGHT! Anyhow, the wife factor requires that the speakers in this home theater/den room be almost invisible. I have looked at the Bose 15 system, but do I really need to spend $1300? I have spoken to salesman who have told me that for less money they can reccommend speakers that "blow away" the Bose and for less money. Somehow, I suspect the motives of someone who will get a commission on my purchase. What can you suggest? Finally, I need a DVD/CD player capable of holding more than one disc. Can all this be done well for less than $1500(excluding TV)? I would appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you.
