I have a new Sharp 70" 3D from Sams. I've never had a surround sound system. My room size is 15 x 32. My budget is $1,000. Well maybe up to $1,500. This is just for the receiver. My plan is to get the TV (done), get the receiver and then the speakers. My equipment: Comcast HD DVR, Xbox and I'm getting a ps3 so I can get the NFL Sunday ticket. I have a Bose 3 speaker setup on my computer that I got from Sams. I never new a computer could sound so good. I want that on a larger scale now for my TV. I think I want a 7.1 or 7.2 type of set up. Oh yeah if possible one with Sirius so I can jam Hair Nation time to time. Brands don't matter to me since I have no experience with any.
