Sundown is actually pretty reasonable, compared to the prices you see up in Chicago.

I just got rid of my Onkyo. Had enough of it. Replaced it with a Pioneer sc-65, 9.2 channel.

Nice machine. My only complaint is that it uses MACC instead of Audyssey and the MACC doesn't adjust the subs below 63Hz, but that's pretty minor.

Suggestionsfor a new home theatre


I got a Yamaha surround sound receiver for $275, a projector TV with 120" picture (Short throw, across the short wall of my LR, onto wall, no screen) for $629
The 5.1 speaker system (w/four corner speakers, subwoofer and center) cost me $80
And I use ROKU for supplying thousands of movies.
Last week, I was down with a bad cold for 4 days, and never got tired of watching new material.
I got everyone beat at under $1,000 and can watch theater quality in my LR without closing drapes in daytime. That is how bright the picture is.
I also put a tuner card in my PC and use a digital antennae so I do not pay for cable TV.

The idiot owner, a short, chubby bald guy, wanted to impress me and my son with his top of the line B&W Nautilus speaker system using top of the line Macintosh components. I swear the guy must be deaf already as he cranked it up so loud that we had to stick our fingers in our ears to prevent hearing loss. We walked out after that. I would never buy from someone who doesn't care about his customers hearing.
The B&W's did sound great though.

It has been almost a month now. I really doubt that the OP is ever coming back.

Only because the OP was REALLY tired of al the "my dog is bigger than yours" BS.....


That and a lot of useless info.



Just for the hell of it:


All from Amazon.


LG LG60PN5700 $1,039.00
Yamaha RX-V575 349.99
Boston A-3210HTS 436.38

That's $1,825.37, which leaves $174,63 for opening a Amazon Prime account, a Sony BluRay to stream Amazon Prime videos, wires, connectors, remote, or whatever.

Not what I would do, but for a small room, it should be ample...
