I have been in the market for a home theater system for some time now and I'm finally ready to commit. I have been looking for something that is entry level and good quality. Thus far, the only things that I have gotten out of this endevour is three nosebleeds and a home theater system that I am returning.
The system that I had just purchased and am utterly disappointed with is the onkyo S3500. While I realize this is definitely bottom of the barrel, the part of me that enjoys having money had to take stake in the matter. Turns out you get what you pay for, so I'm in the market to spend a bit more ( about $750-$800 total ) to get something that is decent.
I worked at an electronics store years ago and have very little residual knowledge of home theater systems. All I remember is that I really enjoyed the sound of the Klipsch Quintet ( III I believe ) and that's pretty much it. I realize that this is the equivalent to a McDonalds fry cook telling Emril that he can cook real real good. I was looking at some of the BIC speakers but am honestly open to all options. I have nothing but a whole bunch of speaker wire. Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks !
