Let me start by saying this sight is amazing and full of great people and information. I've just started on my basement theater, and was looking at a 5.1 system and to be honest I'm totally lost. Anybody have any suggestions on where to start for a decent 5.1 surround sound system including receiver for around $1500? I've looked at the Ascend and AV123 speakers, but I was hoping somebody had a few more suggestions. Just drop me a pm or reply here and your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
