    What's the best and where do I buy it?

    I am looking at getting a new home theatre system. What's the best bang for my buck? I am indifferent on blu-ray or not. The only thing I am picky about is that I want wireless speakers. I have not done much research on this yet so any help is appreciated.


    It's all snark from here on out

    have you looked at avsforum.com

    that place is like the holy grail of home theater information. Just about anything you want to know, somebody on there will have asked it or will answer it for you

    Unfortunately, I dont know much about wireless speakers, so I cant make a recomendation. I know I saw a sale on Onkyo and Yamaha receivers on slickdeals.net today on the front page deals. So if your looking to get a good bang for your buck, I would start there for price comparison

    I couple months ago I bought a $600 msrp Sony blu ray home theater system for $300 on clearance at the Ames best buy. Id say check around at best buys for clearanced ones like I got.

    Re: What's the best and where do I buy it?

    I would stay away from Best Buy. Do yourself a favor and go to a store that has rooms set up for different levels of home entertainment like American TV. There is that one place in Des Moines that was cool as well. Had a high, middle, and low tier room set up with some variety. Even if you dont buy from there, at least you can sit and listen to differences.

    I agree 100%, everything there is overpriced and only decent quality, if that.
