look at either pioneer, yamaha, onkyo, or other higher quality brands. and look for DolbyHD and DTS Master audio for the best sound bluray can offer. also you'll want to go with individual receivers, not the
HTIB junk as the don't do the new sound formats that bluray offers.

Can you specify the models? Thanks...

ummmm... well i suggest you go instore and look (and listen) to some of the ones setup. get some model numbers and prices from there. then go on internet and see if you can get better prices. as for model numbers, i can't say much as i haven't really looked into buying one as the one i have now suites me just fine. but price/feature wise, i love what pioneer packs into their receivers.


But to get the new bluray sound formats, you're going to need a 7.1 reciever. here is a pioneer
yamaha
and an onkyo

but as for if they sound any good, i can't say. that's really personal preference once you get it set up properly.

stay the hell away from bose. they put junk in a box and over price by 100% and claim audiophile levels. they are utter crap. you can get better for cheaper.

plus that bose can't do the hd audio formats.


also, the new hd audio formats require a bit more investing. currently they are only coming on component receivers (like you buy the receiver, speakers, and components separately) and are a bit more expensive. you can go the older Dolby 5.1 and DTS Neo:6 standards, but they aren;t the better audio. really just personal preference and budget.

thats a diagram for a 7.1ch system... 7.2 just adds another subwoofer...

you can buy alot of speaker systems thats are 6.1 and simply buy a separate center channel speaker assuming all the ones in the set look the same.. youll end up with front L/C/R then Rear L/R and Rear Surround L/R

and p.s. bose are great when the price is free and you get the top of the line system at the time and a yamaha home theater sub certainly helps the cause.
