I'm trying to find a good home theater system. Here are my needs:
  • 3D Blu Ray
  • Wireless rear speakers
  • wireless ready (not needed to be built in)

We have a Samsung 3D HDTV, HD cable box, and eventually an HTPC.

Price? would like to stay <$500 but I'm really not sure what there is in that price range. There aren't many systems with wireless rear speakers. Not against doing separates either, just have to fit the budget and needs.

Managed to figure out how to run some wires under the floor (basement has a drop ceiling) so I ended up with the Onkyo HT-S3400 and a Panasonic BDT110 Blu Ray player. Also getting a wall mount from Monoprice.

I got the Onkyo set up last night and it sounds great compared to my old Panasonic DVD home theater system. Have Kill Bill and Indiana Jones on Blu Ray ready for the arrival of the BD player today.

Just curious but why didn't you get the Panasonic 210?

Costs more and the features included were of no use to me (wifi built in namely) because I am going to be adding an HTPC to the setup eventually. Got it at Adorama for $108 shipped.
