    I was recommended the Onkyo HTS790S by the A/V crew. Im not exactly sure that I want something so powerful though. I have read that the sub is too loud and Im living in a dorm room and quite possibly will be living in an apartment soon. I dont want to bother the other tenants.

    I dont know if I want to spend $500 either. Id like to spend $300 since I spent a little more than I wanted on a TV. Should I settle for a 5.1?

    heres the Onkyo HTS790

    Heres the new TV I bought. I fucking love playing 360 on it! :bowdown:

    Oh BTW....anyone have an OPPO dvd player? Im looking at getting a Oppo DV-981HD but most of my DVDs are downloaded DVDr's and was wondering if it would still make a difference to buy an upscaling dvd player.

    Don'tk now what's your budget is, but I went for Pioneer Elite pioneer elite vsx-82txs for my new receiver and it kicks ass so much. Coupled with Klipsch Speakers, it's shaking the whole house. Here is the set up for the living room I posted long time ago.

    You should figure out a new center channel arrangement.

    My budget is $300 +/- $75....

    Does Onkyo have a good 5.1 system? Most DVD's are only 5.1 correct?
