I'm searching for a simple audio solution. Here is my setup: I have an HDTV in the living room connected to an Xfinity set top box for occasionally watching CNN and a WD TV Live box for Hulu, Netflix, and VUDU. I don't have any DVD or Bluray. If I had to play them, I would hook up my laptop. I occasionally play music but nothing super high quality. I have some MP3s ripped from CDs.
So what I need is just a speaker system with no bells and whistles. But I don't want to run wires to the rear speakers or drill on the walls or floor. I guess most video sources on Hulu or Netflix are not 5.1. Some on Vudu probably are. I'm debating if it's really worth to setup a surround system. I'm willing to spend about 1 grand but of course the cheaper the better, as long as the sound is acceptable. My ears are not super picky.
Any suggestions are appreciated!

You're not really looking for a HTIB solution with a $1000 budget.

Post this in the Speakers forum and you'll get more and much better responses.

Just go with a 3.1 setup since you don't want to run wires to the back of the room.
