300 or so i know i could go to a local walmart or bb. i just dont know much about home audio.I like to watch moves and i got a 32 tv its not hd . I would want to play a cd here and there and just make a movie a little more fun for me and who ever is over.

try and get a unit that has an actual receiver so you can do any upgrades down the road, not one of those rinky all in one craps
onkyo or yahmaha come to mind
500$ on sale for 335$
look around for some on sale and you can find a lot of stuff

have this one and it rocks, the 3 hdmi inputs does not pass audio, need a fiber optic cable fo that. but thats the only flaw, other than that its a kick *** home theater, 7 speakers, a sub, ipod dock and receiver. all for under 400 shipped.

Yamaha is the best for recievers in my opinion. I have a Pioneer Set up i would sell you. The CD player itself retailed for $600 back when it came out. PM me for details and ill hook you up with model numbers and crappy pictures lol.

i agree, sony and yamaha are the best if you need a receiver that has 30 different surround fields to manipulate the original artists intention of the recording:rolleyes:
