Made the mistake of buying Bose Cinemate
I recently purchased the Bose Cinemate GS. I have a 2006 model of Pioneer VSX Receiver (don't have access to the exact model other than it was one of the last models that didn't do audio through HDMI and only video if that helps). The Bose Cinemate replaced this Pioneer receiver and the Bose sounds good but, its not dramatically better than what I bought 8 years ago.
I got the Bose on special for $400 and I would like to get a good sub and receiver, if possible for this price. I would like to replace the speakers in place at a later time.
I don't know much about receivers and any and all help would be welcome
Thanks in advance.
