I'm in the market for an HTIB. Ideally, my budget is $500 or less. I am not an audiophile by any means, but want decent sound. I am somewhat tech savvy, so slightly complicated systems to set up I should be able to figure out. I will be hooking this up to a 40" LED TV and my DVD player (I don't have a Blu-ray player...yet) in a living room that is approx 12'x15'. Here is what I am looking for:
- "Wireless" rear surround speakers
- iPod dock
- HDMI Inputs/Outputs
- Would be nice to have Blu-ray player, but not necessary
- Reputable Brand
I've been looking at the LG LHB535, Samsung HT-C6500 and Sony BDV-E770W (granted some of my "wants" are not in those systems). Any thoughts on those?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated! If my list of "wants" is unattainable on my budget, just let me know. BTW, I'm not completely sold on the soundbar type systems.
