Please help! I'm new to this whole HTIB thing and don't have a lot to spend. I like Yamaha's for their quality and value. I also like that they have a powered subwoofer. I found these two in my price range but I'm confused as to which is better. They're almost the same price. Does anyone have any thoughts???
It looks like the 280 comes with a better receiver but I've read some unfavorable views about reliability.
The 270 is a little cheaper but seems to have less features on the receiver.
Are the speakers the same on these?
Does anyone have any other suggestions for comparably priced HTIBs in this price range (around 250 bucks)?
