My father-in-law wants a system to hook up to his tv and to play music, especially his old records. What's the best options out there for under $600 for the HTIB only? The turntable will be on top of the $600. Thanks in advance for the help.

That is going to be a tough nut as most, if not all, HTiB's have given up the Phono Input. Maybe Onkyo HT-S5500 to Onkyo HT-S7409 and purchase a Phono Pre-amp. The pre-amps are generally very small and can be tucked beside or behind the receiver and are usually under $50. You can also purchase a new turntable WITH line-level RCA output. They basically have the pre-amp built into them.

Denon AVR X7200WA, Emotiva XPR-5, Emotiva XPA-7, Sony XBR 75" 850C, Oppo BDP-103D, Roku 4.
DefTech BP7000SC (L/R), CLR3000 (C), SM55 (FH), UIW BPZ/A (SB), UIW 75 (TM).
JBL L7 (Sur), EoSone RSR 350 (RH).

PC 2.1 setup. Emotiva Stealth 6, SVS SB2000 sub, Emotiva DC-1 DAC.
