i recently bought the bose cinemate series ii from costco for 549.00 (huge mistake). as this was my first home theater purchase and i quickly learned what everyone else seems to know about bose; bose has very little bang for the huge bucks your paying. I have very limited space in my room and i am wondering what may be a better option for around that 350-550 price range. the onkyo HTX-22 HDX catches my eye so far, any input?
What Should I Buy instead of the Bose Cinemate series ii (small room, budget 350-550) ?

yeah otto return window was fine but you are absolutely correct about breaking in the system/calibration/adjusting ears. i ended up going with a DENON AVR-1513 receiver and a POLK RM6750 5.1 home theatre after having listened to my buddies Yamaha (YHT3654) and the Onkyo (HTS3500) in store. ended up being at the top of my price range but i am happy so far.
Thanks for your input otto.
