I'm looking for an audio system for my bedroom (mid-size). My main goal is to get a decent surround sound system for watching movies and playing video games without the back speakers and I don't need a DVD player. I was looking at the Bose 3-2-1 system but it's out of my price range. Thanks for any suggestion.

You can easily do this by picking up an Onkyo or Yamaha receiver, two bookshelf speakers (Polk, Athena, Yamaha, etc) and a powered subwoofer. I just did this about a week ago for under $350 (Onkyo TXSR304S, Polk M10 speakers, Sony 100 watt powered subwoofer). I started with a Bose Cinemate and took it back. This setup above blows the Bose away..

I thought Denon had one that was 2.1, but I can't seem to find it now.

With a $500 budget I'd go with just a basic receiver like the Onkyo 304 @ $119 shipped, bic H-100 sub $200 and a pair of quality bookshef speakers like Athena B1.2 $119 a pair, total $438 and you might even be able to find the matching C1 or C1.2 center on ebay and still be under your budget.


This will give you a far better system than packaged while still being under your budget an also the ability to go surround later if you choose with the same setup.
