I know this topic is going to carry across a couple of the sections so please don't get mad at me.
TV: SANYO DV55441 LCD 55"
Apple TV 3
Dynex non-regional SD DVD player
Time Warner Cable (YUCK!) DVR
Just need sound
Budget: $250 for speakers, sub, and receiver together
Hardware: 2x floor speakers with mid's and high's (right and left), 1x sub, 1x receiver
Receiver Features needed: coaxial in, decent sound quality, ability to be programmed into a universal remote such as Time Warner Cable's UR5U-8780L-TWNC. And thats it! I don't need HDMI through... I don't need 7 channel, I don't need wifi (I have an Apple TV), I don't need a UI of any kind. I just need a bare bones receiver that puts out decent/great quality.
Floor Speaker Features: 3' tall'ish. Don't need to be powerful (850 ft^2 apartment) but they need to deliver on quality.
Sub: Same as Floor Speakers... not trying to bring the house down, just need something to round out the sound and fill the low's
I don't mind buying used stuff from Craigslist so that would cut even more money off the price
I would really appreciate some feedback and advice.
ps: If I could get away with 3-5 way speakers and skip the sub that would be great!
