Re: WTB: Surround sound setup
For less than $100, you should look for older equipment from craigslist, ebay, and occasionally your local goodwill.
My dorm system consists of a Sony 5.1 reciever, a pair of 3-way Onkyo towers with a 12" woofer in each one, a pair of JVC bookshelf speakers as a center channel, and a pair of Sony bookshelf speakers for the rear. I'd get a subwoofer, but it really is overkill for a dorm.
It cost me about $100. With some tweaking, it sounds much better than any $600 HTIB system.
