I've just purchased a TV, waiting for delivery. What other stuff will I need to setup a home theater? I'm not looking for actual products, but more so the types... Goal is to watch movies and occasional tv shows with rare gaming - trying to minimize the number of things needed while maximizing picture and audio quality (I like nice stuff). Still researching price range - guess is about $2k for audio system, no idea on the rest.
Obviously speakers, sub, possibly an amp. Do I need a receiver?
For playing movies, a blue ray player is a good idea. I've noticed many of these also do other things like netflix, pandora, etc. What's the benefit to something like this vs. building a computer that has a blue ray player and using something like windows MC or xmbc or ps3?
Does it make sense to get a blu ray player plus a ps3/xbox ? If I'm not getting cable or satellite, do I need a PVR?
Do I need anything else?
