5.1 surround sound system suggestions
Finally got my tv so on to the next thing, a surround sound system. Any suggestions?

Lloyd, I would seriously suggest checking out Yamaha's line of receivers. That is what I use to power my home theater room, and the sound quality and power are incredible. Check out either the RX-V661 or HT-R6060 7.1 channnel receivers. Both have 2 HDMI inputs, and will fully transmit the PS3's 1080P maximum resolution to a TV and 7.1 channel linear PCM surround sound. Yamaha uses top quality parts for their power supplies and top-of-the-line Burr Brown 192 kHz/24-Bit DACs for sound processing. You won't find a better sounding receiver for the money. The retail price for either one is $549, but you can find them as low as $350 online.

Here's a link to Yamaha's receiver page, so you can see more info.

I've used Yamaha receivers in my surround systems for years. Since Yamaha makes great instruments too, they really try to replicate the live sound in their receivers. Match them with good speakers, and you'll hear the difference.

Thanks! I'm definitely looking into those.

You thinking seperates or all in one?

lloyd 24-12-2007 01:44 AM

I'm looking into both.

seperates is more expensive, but more upgradable.

I would have thought it would be cheaper to piece one together then to buy the whole thing.

P.S. What is up with your sig?

MattZani 28-12-2007 08:52 AM

No, because Seperates are mid-high end, where as all togethers tend to be Low - Mid range, Seperates are better made etc.

Ahhhh, ok, I get what your saying.
