I find HTIBs to be comforting because choosing my own components seems intimidating, but I understand that it's the way to go. Could I get some recommendations on a 5.1 system?

I have:
Pioneer PDP-4280HD
x-box 360
a macbook pro that I keep connected to my TV via minidisplay->DVI->HDMI

I'd like to spend around $600 give or take a couple hundred. What do you think?

PS Does any mac expert know how to get audio to go from my MBP through the HDMI? I'm running it separately through a toslink right now.

I agree. I have the Onkyo HT-S6100 that Icky recommended. Set up is extremely easy, as is the actual operation of the system. The sound is fantastic, especially with Blu-Ray discs.
