View Full Version : Home Theater Recommendations Please

I would like to buy a home theater in a box as I cannot afford to put together the system I would like. Can anyone recommend something good in the price range of $500-$1000? I am more concerned with the sound for movies and not music. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

This setup will put any <$1000 HTIB system to shame, enjoy!

HSU Performance 2 Package (Ventriloquist VT-12 speakers + HSU STF-2 Sub), $518
Oppo 970 DVD Player, $149
Yamaha RX-V659 Receiver, $350

Total: $1017

Build slowly. Start with a decent AVR and 2 fronts. Add the rest in steps.

I remember www.crutchfield.com had an Onkyo HTIB for around $499.00 discounted from it's original price. I don't have anymore info, I was on there looking for something else and just happened to see it. Sony usually has them for under $500.00 as well.

your right Peabody, crutchfield had a few with DVD players included (Denon, Onky and a Yamaha) system that would fit his price range nicely.
