My girlfriends son is 14. I want to set him up with surround sound for movies and games, music. Thier little media room is already completely wired for 5.1 but they have no speakers. I want to get him something he can take with him in a few years when he goes to college.
I promised my girlfriend I wouldn't spend more than $500 total. Although I know a good receiver would be probably an ideal investment, I am leaning toward a HTIB with an integrated receiver. That way he can take the speakers and receiver with him in a few years. Can any Polkheads advise what HTIB will give me the best bang for the buck, and sound pretty terrific?
