Then one from Onkyo is your best bet. Frankly I'm not a big fan of HTIB sets but if that's what you want that's the manufacturer I recommend.

For *SOME* people who have modest enjoyment conditions who are not HT connoisseurs, a HTIB is sometimes just a good way to save money. In my case, spending 2, 3, or even 4 times what I paid for mine would not have made nearly enough of a difference for me to justify the extra :money: :money:. We bought a decent TV, which hopefully will long outlast the smaller components. If we ever move and conditions change, we could still use the 32" Sony HDTV in our bedroom, if not the LR. My scenario fits in with my "antique" house, which I love, but which also doesn't have exceptionally large rooms.

But that's just me. :) I have no idea what Mr. Fun's setup conditions are like. If you can tell a difference and it bothers you (and you can afford it), fine. If not, what's the point? :shrug:

To me, seeing a big-ass plasma TV with a huge HT attached in a very modest home reminds me of a shack with a box fan in the window in 100+ degree heat, 70% humidity and a Caddy sitting out front with all-gold trim and good speakers. :sure: Those types of people clearly don't know how to prioritize. :rolleyes:
