I just purchased a new home and the previous owners had a home theater system set up in the bedroom. The TV was wall mounted and there is in-wall wiring for 5 built-in surround speakers and a connection for a sub. There are also additional hookups for wired speakers in the living room and on the deck. I'm pretty sure the previous owner had a Bose Lifestyle system but I've read mixed reviews about Bose products, specifically in terms of the price/performance ratio. Also, I'd like Blu-Ray compatibility and Bose doesn't offer this right now as far as I can tell. Are there any other smaller HTIB systems besides Bose that allow connections to additional room wired speakers? Or am I stuck with paying $2k for a Bose system that doesn't even let me play Blu-Ray without connecting a separate box? I know I could buy a full size receiver but would prefer to stick to something smaller for a bedroom environment. Any help would be much appreciated!
