Eitherway, I have an A2 and an HR20-100 now. I'm looking to get a new sound system ( the old system is staying with the old TV ). I'm not really a snob but maybe there are better choices then an HTIB.
What would you do within the constraints of a `sweet point` budget?
I'd definately go for a receiver with at least 2 HDMI inputs, along the lines of the Onkyo 605
Nice price ($450 but out of stock on Crutchfield) for a good AV receiver. I still have my old Onkyo 6.1 receiver.
CC online has it in stock for $20 more than Crutchfield
