I'm posting this for a friend of mine. He was an old, old receiver with an old turntable that's connected to a little set of bookshelf speakers and he wants to upgrade. He lives at home and wants a set up in his room, he wants this/looking at how much it's going to cost:
- An affordable receiver (one that can support 5.1 audio, and has inputs for a CD player, turntable and iPod)
- Complete 5.1 speaker set
He wants surround sound and wants optimal sound quality. Can you give some suggestions? Should he have surround sound in his room? If so, what do you reccomend? Should he just upgrade his current two channel audio? If so, what do you reccomend in that area? He said his budget is 800 dollars.
