Hello,


Looking into getting a sounds system (5.1 maybe) for my house... setup is not ideal for surround sound so recommendations on how I should set up would be great.. but basically the room only allows for the couch to be against one wall then the TV on the other opposing wall.. about 14ft in-between...


so if i want surround sound... there won't be any speakers behind me. Besides that restriction and my budget (hoping to do an entry level system for $500 - $600) suggestions are very welcomed...


Looking for a hook up for movies and my PS3...not really music..so no ipod connection etc necessary..


I've seen the vision speaker deal on:


Onkyo 5.1 A/V Home Theater Receiver (TXSR307B) -- $300 CAD


Polk Audio RM95 High Performance 5 Speaker Surround System (POLKRM95) -- $380


but at this price.. i won't be able to get a sub... or should i go for a HTIB?? or only go for a 2.1 setup??


Thanks!!

I don't know if you've ever auditioned sound bars but you could always go that route. There are plenty of sound bars (Yamaha, Polk, Samsung and Definitive) in your budget.


Having used 2.1 in the past , I can tell you that if you have the right equipment, they sound very nice. If you've never had a surround sound system in the past or if you are just use to a TV, a 2.1 is a huge improvement.


What kind of TV do you have? Another option, if you don't want anything fancy and want to conserve space, is adding a decent sub-woofer to your TV if it has pre-outs. You won't believe the impact that has on the overall sound.
