I currently have a 42" 720p Plasma and a DVD player (Blue ray in the future). Can I have some assistance building a system to fit my needs?
For the receiver I would most definatly recommend this Denon 788:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846
For that you are talking 272 Shipped.
The 5.1 system can probably be had at looking at somewhere like the speaker company, fluance, or consider the polk monitor 30s, and polk r50s (which are on sale at newegg i believe or get them from polk direct), or depending on your room size the Quintet IIIs are very awesome for the price. For the subs i would suggest Energy, BIC, Klipsch, or any you can get cheap ( i believe the BICs are very good subs for the price and you can get them relativly inexpensive. Any of these would be good deals and great bang for the buck
