2k$ for hometheater system and a TV?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm having 2k$ for a new home theater system and a tv. I plan to use the this rig to watch full HD movies, listen to music and gaming sometimes. Well, i just don't know should I wait till black friday to get a good deal or right now? If right now? should I spend it in Best buy or online shopping? Should I get a Plasma or a projector? AND 7.1 would be awesome for me. Please help me. Thank you.

Not sure about Best Buy as heading to a dedicated home theater store might be of more help. Also a projector would def be cheaper when getting to a large screen size versus plasma.

The projector itself may be cheaper but if you want an image worth a damn you have to spend hundreds on a proper screen. I'd get a regular TV and if you're gonna go plasma(good idea) get a Panasonic. They bought Pioneer's Kuro technology when they got out of the game so all of their new Viera sets have it now. (Pioneer was top-dog in the plasma field by a large margin).

I have my eye on this model:

As far as receivers and speakers go, that all depends on personal preferences. I'd go into a store and mess with the settings/menus/etc on a bunch of receivers first, see what suits you.
APU what?

Receiver, Sub, TV, 7 speakers for 2k. A pretty tall order IMO. Will need compromises somewhere.

This won't be an "audiophile music system" but should do pretty well for HT. $400 base price for 7 speakers. After shipping and taxes I'm gonna guess it will hit close to $500 or more.

Add in say $800 for the TV and you have $700 left for your amp + sub. I would personally spend all 700 on the amp/receiver and get a sub later.


A 40lb receiver that will give you a ton of power.

that was awesome guys. Thank astrallite for the audio recommended. But I think I have to spend more money on the TV caus'e I want a bigger TV than 50' and i think I prefer 60'. So I think I'll wait to the Black Friday.

For 2K that will be a huge stretch. If you want a quality TV for 60, that will easily blow past 2K alone. Trust me, you do not want a low quality "60, you will come to hate it.
