Im currently in a small room but I am looking to move and would probably place this in a living room setting in the future. Would this system be a good buy or are there any recommendations for another HTIB or a better receiver/speaker combo that fits around that price range?
I have been in IT for 14 years... My experience tells me that you cannot go wrong with Refurb Products... Sure, they have a shorter warranty period, but usually, what ever problem the original production line suffered from, has now been repaired. Or, if that failure was one of the expected 10% failure rate... it's actually far less likely to fail than a brand new item of the same make and model. There are occasions where the company just keeps replacing failed parts with "new" parts that will suffer the same fate because they never bothered to fix the source of the problem. That usually only happens in lowere end products (store brands).
