I am shopping around and researching, trying to find a good (obviously not high-end, but not crap) HT system for about $400. Maybe unrealistic -- if that's the case, just tell me so and my feelings won't be hurt.


Onkyo HTS760 looks like a really nice system for the money, and I can get that for $499 from Crutchfield, but it's obviously $100 above my budget.


I can get a refurbed Onkyo HT650 for $329. I have read some good reviews of that system (Onkyo seems to produce a better product than most others at this price level from what I can tell), but it is not in stores anymore so I can't go listen to it.


So I'm tossing it onto the floor -- you guys have any recommendations? To tell the truth, I am leaning towards just exceeding the budget a bit and getting the HTS760, but I want to exhaust all other options first.


TIA!

Hey letMeIn, that's an idea I had not considered. The reviews do look good except for the complaints about hiss from the center channel. The later reviews say that has been fixed, though -- true in your experience?


I'm still reluctant to buy PC speakers as the solution, having trouble breaking out of the conventional box y'know, but a very interesting suggestion and I appreciate that! I am definitely considering it and will have to check these out at Circuit City (although if I were to buy them I'd get them cheaper elsewhere, of course).

I bought mine 2 weeks ago . I don't hear any hiss from the center channel, so I guess Logitech took care of the problem. I was in the same boat as you . I just wanted great sound for little $ ( for now ofcourse lol ). If you go to Circuit City or Best buy they still sell them for $399. Newegg.com has it for $290 + free shipping and no tax, can't beat that.


Before I had Logitech 540z 4.1, and I loved the sound. But they only had PC outputs, so I upgraded them to 680z . Really good speakers.
