    I use a sound bar from Insignia with a sub woofer.. nothing great, but I could not afford a great outlay of cash.. besides the living room is on the small size, so my setup is adequate for my needs...

    In my sons room, He has a 19 inch flat screen, I hooked up a pair of powered computer speakers from Logitech. It was about a $45 expence, but it sounds great. Even at low volume I can hear his TV downstairs..

    For flat panel TV's external sound is the way to go..

    I moved from Logic 7 decoding of my TV shows to a DTS neo:X /audessy 9.1 and wow, it is amazing. I use left and right wide channels mostly. Does a nice blend from the front LR channels to the side surround channels.

    I don't usually do this, but you spelled your job title wrong. I could find no definition on the Net.

    I have the BOSE V-35 and although it cost me $ 3,100.00, it is very practical for my place and a very intelligent piece of equipment. I had the larger speakers from them but it was too bulky plus I needed a big amp. Sure there are others systems out there that sound better but what can I say.

    I have always wanted a Bose system, and I just bought a V-35 system this week. Factory Renewed cost me $2700 including tax.

    So far I am just as happy with it as I expected to be, it sounds great and looks good too.

    I was surprised that they didn't try to sell me an extended warranty though, I thought everyone at least tried to sell those?

    You gotta be crazy getting a Bose system for that much, I rather get a used car for that price but that's just me.

    I have a 5.0 system. Klipsch Quintet IV paired with a Denon AVR1713. No subwoofer. I may add one later but with the size of the room it's not really needed.

    Now some of their pro-sumer gear is still top notch. BOSE 301's are still some great PA type stuff for parties/dances, etc..

    Despite all us audio-piles (myself included) dissing Bose. Two things. If you are happy with it that is wonderful you can feel good about your purchase. They have engineered a great sound that is quite pleasing to many and their product support is second to none.

    Where all the other companies do a add on warranty, Bose warrants their products like nobody else. That is part of what you pay for up front. Even if what you have is out of regular warranty they have a nominal fixed price to repair or replace it to "as new" condition.

    I use their Noise Cancelling headphones on my tractor while mowing and they said if I plug up the noise cancelling microphones with dust and dirt bring em in they will replace em. (I have a Bose outlet store at the exit from the freeway I take to get to my farm). An their little in ear units Awesome sound! (though the tractor trumps those) and for in-ear they stay put one doesn't have to keep reseating them to keep bass response. I've some Kipsch in ears as well awesome sound better than the Bose in the high range but they irratate over time and require constant reseating for best effect.

    So congratulations on your purchase and know the company does a good job standing behind their products without needing extended warranties. We can all argue about not being audio-pile quality sound but in the end, they do have a nice sound and certainly a spousal acceptance factor my floor standing Klipsch RF7 towers will never gain. So enjoy and don't let us annoy you with our "no highs, no lows? Must be Bose wizecracks :grin: .

    Yamaha RX-V3800 receiver.
    Front stage-Energy RC70 mains, RC-LCR center.
    Surrounds- Mirage Omnican 6, sides and rears.
    Subs- Mirage Omni S10 and S12, stacked. This gives a +6 db output.

    The Energy speakers are in the rosenut finish, which matches the finish on my credenza style cabinet perfectly.
    VERY pleased with this setup.

    I just have it going into my Sony DE-185 amplifier... (I dont have DTV anymore so only my VCR is going into it)

    DTV is not the nice company they were when I signed up in 1997..... They have become quite greedy and underhanded..... Tried to get me off my RCA box by suspending my acct over and over...... I had the last laugh!!

    NOTHING BUT RUBBISH ON NOW ANYWAY!!
