    I'm pretty new to the whole Home Theater thing and decided not to buy a Home Theater in a Box audio system. After a lot of reading and researching throughout this forum, I came up with the following setup for my home theater and I was wondering if someone who knows about this stuff can chime in with some help/comments/suggestions.

    My theater room is about 11.5'W x 11.5'L x 8'H and it will be used mostly for movies.

    Here's my system as of right now..

    Athena Point5 System MK II Surround Speakers System ($200)
    Dayton 10" Sub-100 125 Watt Powered Subwoofer ($125)
    Panasonic SA-XR55S Receiver ($230)

    And for the DVD player I am having trouble deciding between these two (if you can suggest one, that would be great)

    OPPO OPDV971H Digital HD-DVD Player ($200)
    Panasonic DVD-S77S DVD Player ($215)

    Basically I just wanted to know what you guys think about this setup and if it would all go well together and be compatible. Any comments/criticisms/suggestions would be great.. Thanks!

    Hey, Everything looks like a good system to start with and get into the hobby.

    I personally don't own the Oppo, but I have a friend who bought it and from the movies I've watched at his place it seems to be a decent player, it's small and the disc tray looks like a heavy DVD could break it off, but it has held up well so far.

    I don't know anything about the Panny so I can't make any meaningful comparisons.

    Good luck with the purchases and welcome to the forum!
