My sound bar just died. After researching solutions and sulking I am moving on...

I have a small square space about 14 x 14 ft. I am less inclined to go sound bar again since I have not been thrilled with price vs performance in that area. I am a minimalist at heart but I understand that you have to give a little to get good performance since I am not willing to spend over 1900 dollars on a killer sound bar.

Can anyone suggest a solution for me between 500 - 700 dollars. I am intrigued by wireless speakers because I am not interested in sending wires to the back of the room but will do if necessary. I just don't know much about their performance and longevity. From a receiver and speaker set to sound bar and in between will be considered.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

Take a look at the Onkyo HT-S5500. I am very happy with it for the price. 7.1 with a active sub.Moves sound great and music is really good as well. Got mine at Hhgregg they price matched Amazon. If your in no hurry Amazon has free shipping on it. As for running wires get a spool of white jacketed speaker wire from monoprice for $30 and your set. The wires that come with the Onkyo are too small and too short.
