Hello.
First time posting to this forum.
I have a question..
I am in the market to buy a home theater surround system. I currently donít have anything at all, and I am as far knowing anything about audio gadgets as you are to the moon.
I would like to buy something that is not too expensive (pref. below $300) is that even possible? Should I just stop looking now?
I wanted to see if anyone can explain to me in simple English pluses and minuses of any audio system out there, like what I should look for and what I should stay away fromÖ
Also I found this system at a local electronics store, sales people obviously are trying to sell this to me so they were gushing over it, but I just wanted to get a second non-biased opinion on this:
Itís a Kenwood 5.1 Standard Home Theater System. Model number HTB-307
Can someone tell me anything about this, is it any good .
Thank you very much!!

It sure is.

Here is Panasonic SC-HT05 which sell for $250 at Bestbuy, and got excellent review from CNET. All you have to do is add a DVD player.

You have a moving picture, try again. If you were low profile before, guess what, you are high profile now. VERY HIGH! From what I have read on this forum, you can run but believe me, you can never, never hide.
