i'm looking for an amp/5.1 speaker setup. i don't need volume. i have a fairly small room.


i know that home theater speaker systems have an amp integrated into the sub. but i want something with the option of upgrading to 7.1 in the future.


as for price i was thinking about around $500 but from reading the other posts i see that most of the audiophiles here don't even suggest a sub-$1000 setup. $1500 would be an absolute max but would highly prefer to keep it under $1000.

Don't even worry about 6.1 or 7.1.


It is, at best, a minor exbellishment of a basic 5.1 system that may sound better on some soundtracks in some rooms and may sound worse on some soundtracks in some rooms. It's been over-hyped because the receiver manufacturers needed a "new feature".


Unless you plan to spend over $2000 on a system, you shouldn't even consider going beyond a solid 5.1 channel system.
