If you are dead set on a Blu-ray HTIB set up and no more than the $300 mark I would look at the local craigs list or even ebay as you may be able to find a good used set up.


* I can only assume you are looking at something like this maybe?
http://www.amazon.com/LG-LHB536-Blu-...4565118&sr=1-5


The biggest problem with set up's that have an intergrated DVD/blu-ray payer invloved is if something goes wrong with the player the entire system is "junk" and you have to pretty much toss it away. Now... I dodnt know your situation as if you just need something to get you buy for a year or if you want something that will give you better performance so you dont feel the urge to "upgrade" for a few years??


If anything, I would reccomed haveing a seperate Blu-ray player & HT set up but I also understand it would cost a few dollars more as well.


Just an example...

and

Just my opinion but you would be much happier with some sort of set up like that.

well just due to lack of funds...turning the garage into a small apt. and wanted a decent HTIB with bluray so I wouldn't have to spend more on a blu ray player...


If I go the blu ray player separate route, what's the best low end HTIB without blu ray and what with blu ray?

I agree with skally. You're best off to go with separates. A decent entry level HTiB is the Yamaha YHT-395. The price is a tad bit more than what you listed but I think it would sever you better, now and in the future. What's nice is that the sub-woofer is not passive. It's powered separately.

I have the Panasonic BDT-210 and am very happy with it. It plays very nicely with my HTS. eBay? Is it new? I'm always leery about buying off of eBay unless the seller is highly rated. But that's just me. I bought mine from Amazon. I just signed up for Amazon Prime and got free shipping (I think I paid 350 at the time) and then canceled my Amazon Prime before the one month introductory period was up.

Sorry dude. That's the only HTiB that I have first hand experience with. The increase in the Buy It Now price probably means he has lots of inquiries. It is a very good entry level system.

I bet Otto is glad he got his when he did! For the money, you can't beat the 395 400 and 500 series either. But your 395 is the best price/value. I went with my Yamaha RX-V765 unit for the same reason last year. Great price, no HDMI/burn up issues like Onkyo, etc.
