Looks great, SR!
I'm impressed with how your big screen captured the sunrise. Mine doesn't do that! :DNothing says "idiot inside" better than an Obama/Biden bumper sticker.

How much do you want to spend?
You can get a freaking STEAL on KEF iiQ9s online right now. I think that dollar for dollar you will not find better front speakers. www.onecall.com has them for a real bargain, and you can get some surrounds and a center that match up well.
I personally like Focal and Mirage for the money, but we are stepping up now. A nice set of Focal or Mirage front speakers will cost you $1800-$3000 per pair.
Here is what I suggest - invest in speakers. The technology is slow to change and that investment will last you a long time. Even if it means using a $400 receiver to power them, you will notice a lot bigger difference by investing more in speakers than investing more in a receiver.
For the price, I suggest Onkyo and Denon receivers. Buy them online. Dont buy them locally. You will save a lot of money and still get a warranty.
If you want to spend a little more, Cambridge Audio makes some awesome stuff. They also have a great media storage center and a wonderful CD Player. But now we are talking serious money.
Rotel is great too.
Just do yourself a favor - go to a real home audio/video store (not Best Buy or Sams) and take a good listen. Once you listen to good speakers, your life will be ruined forever.

Those are greyt looking Beebs but overkill for us. The room the TV and
system are in is smallish, the Sony system I bought is perfect for the
room.:)May the FORCE be with you!

But i have to say, for the price you got an amazing deal right there. Nice job.
But sometime, just for fun, take your favorite CD over to your local high-end audio store for a cool experience. I suggest "Run On" (aka "Gods Gonna Run You Down") by Johnny Cash off of his "America V: A Hundred Highways" album or "Colorblind" by Counting Crows off of the Cruel Intentions soundtrack.
They will blow your mind!**** Obama and **** you too.

If I get a chance I'll do that, we do have a high end sound place
near us. Sony makes pretty good stuff and this system is a good example.May the FORCE be with you!
