So, I have a room it is 14' wide and 12' deep. These are in my budget... The $399 HK system is at the limit of what I want to spend.

Yamaha YHT-397 5.1-Channel Home Theater System -349 (im a prime member so I think shipping is free even on this big box) -looks easy to setup

Harman KardonĀ® White HKTS-16-WQ 5.1 Channel Home Theater System with Pioneer VSX-821K Receiver -399 (great return policy if I dont like it)

Someone has a Denon avr3300 for sale really cheap....Then I could add a speaker system. Reviews show this as a great unit and it was really $$$ when new.


I saw these in Bestbuy they are on sale for $49 a pair

Add a sub and center chan with the dennon and it could be a decent system for a small room



Onkyo HT-S5400 7.1-Channel Home Theater System (looks cool-I do have a few movies that have 7.1)

Any input is welcome.
Thank you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving

ps. this will be for 98% Movies/tv as I have a high end headphone setup(Tube amp, dac n crap) for my music.

Found this speaker setup on sale today that I might just pull the trigger on now before they are gone.

Pioneer SP-BS21 $40 a pair
Pioneer SP-C21 Center Channel $50
Pioneer SW-8 100W Powered Subwoofer $70 or the Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 $80(I have only had downfiring subs in the past but the polk has a lot of good reviews)

So, 40+40+50+70=$200 for what seems like a really good speaker setup
Then I could get that used rcvr and have money left over for speaker stands and wire or get a new one for $200ish

Think I read on here that these Pioneers are pretty darn good especially compared to the boxed systems in my price range.
