I am a newbie here and would love to benefit from your knowledge guys.
As you can see for the title of my post, I am looking for a easy to set up 2.1 or 3.1 system to enhance my TV speakers.
I know i can not expect same results as a 5.1 system, but I will switch to a full and nice 5.1 or 7.1 system in the future, when I will have a bigger living room.
As well for a question of room, I would like to avoid for the time being a large amp/Receiver. (but could go for a thin and not too expensive one)
I went to BestBuy and was quite impress by the Bose system, sound sounds really really nice. I did not see the HT-C350 but tried the HT-C150 and was quite dissapointed. But I know too that BestBuy large open space is not the best place for this kind of system.
Here is my current set up and what I would like to plug-in:
- Sony 40Bravia XBR9
- Cable Set up box
For the Sony:
Pro: HDMI connectivity, Price (compare to Bose), IPOD dock (for 40USD more), Bravia Sync for the remote.
Anti: all ports on the subwoofer, worried about the surround results. Can this system really offer something close to 5.1??
For the Bose:
Pro: Sounds seems to rocks.
Anti: only 1 Optic and 1 RCA connectivity, Price.
Please let me know what do you think or if you have any other recommendation.
Thanks in advance.
