View Full Version : Home Theater System ???
05-28-2002, 01:37 PM
I'm looking at getting a HT system. Right now I live in an apartment so I've been looking at the Home Theater System packages that come with a reciever and the 5 speakers and sub. What I'm looking for is a decent one that has a good reciver so when I do upgrade speakers I be able to keep the reciever. Are there any decent ones that come to mind?

Hey guys just came across the Onkyo HTS650. Would this be a good system to start with? Is the reciever good? Or would I be better off getting the Kenwood HTB505?
Give us some sort of price range.
The Revox M-51 is probably one of the best integrated systems.

I was looking in the $500 and less price range. This system will be my first, just so I can get a taste of HT.

Then out of the boxed packages, I'd say the Yamaha is the nicest tuner, but the pioneer has a little more raw juice to it. The speakers in those boxes pretty much suck long term, but can get you through till you are ready to upgrade 'em.

SO most of you would recommend either a Yamaha or Pioneer packages to start with then upgrade the speaker later?

most of me would, yes.
Another thing you may want to try is getting a reasonably inexpensive receiver like the Onkyo SR500 or the Pioneer 811 or 850, and buying the speakers separately from that.

I like Yamaha recievers too! they sound really nice. Your speakers also make a lot of difference to how things come out, unfortunately Yamaha speakers arn't that nice =(.

SO what would be a good reciever to get? Denon, Harmon, Sony, Yamaha etc....???? Then for now I could get a cheap set of speakers to use until I can upgrade. Also would it be worth it to get a 7.1 capable reciver or wait until the prices come down?

I tell you what, that harmon/Kardon on the deals page today calls to me....calls to me something fierce. Wonder if we get an employee discount.....ahem.
